Towards More Efficient and Effective Inference: The Joint Decision of Multi-Participants

Existing approaches to improve the performances of convolutional neural networks by optimizing the local architectures or deepening the networks tend to increase the size of models significantly. In order to deploy and apply the neural networks to edge devices which are in great demand, reducing the scale of networks are quite crucial... However, It is easy to degrade the performance of image processing by compressing the networks. In this paper, we propose a method which is suitable for edge devices while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of inference. The joint decision of multi-participants, mainly contain multi-layers and multi-networks, can achieve higher classification accuracy (0.26% on CIFAR-10 and 4.49% on CIFAR-100 at most) with similar total number of parameters for classical convolutional neural networks. read more
