Jumpout: Improved Dropout for Deep Neural Networks with Rectified Linear Units

no code implementations ICLR 2019 Shengjie Wang, Tianyi Zhou, Jeff Bilmes

In this paper, we discuss three novel observations about dropout to better understand the generalization of DNNs with rectified linear unit (ReLU) activations: 1) dropout is a smoothing technique that encourages each local linear model of a DNN to be trained on data points from nearby regions; 2) a constant dropout rate can result in effective neural-deactivation rates that are significantly different for layers with different fractions of activated neurons; and 3) the rescaling factor of dropout causes an inconsistency to occur between the normalization during training and testing conditions when batch normalization is also used.

MahiNet: A Neural Network for Many-Class Few-Shot Learning with Class Hierarchy

no code implementations ICLR 2019 Lu Liu, Tianyi Zhou, Guodong Long, Jing Jiang, Chengqi Zhang

It addresses the ``many-class'' problem by exploring the class hierarchy, e. g., the coarse-class label that covers a subset of fine classes, which helps to narrow down the candidates for the fine class and is cheaper to obtain.
