ImageNet classification with deep convolutional neural networks
A large, deep convolutional neural network was trained to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes and employed a recently developed regularization method called "dropout" that proved to be very effective. Expand
Learning Multiple Layers of Features from Tiny Images
It is shown how to train a multi-layer generative model that learns to extract meaningful features which resemble those found in the human visual cortex, using a novel parallelization algorithm to distribute the work among multiple machines connected on a network. Expand
Dropout: a simple way to prevent neural networks from overfitting
It is shown that dropout improves the performance of neural networks on supervised learning tasks in vision, speech recognition, document classification and computational biology, obtaining state-of-the-art results on many benchmark data sets. Expand
Improving neural networks by preventing co-adaptation of feature detectors
When a large feedforward neural network is trained on a small training set, it typically performs poorly on held-out test data. This "overfitting" is greatly reduced by randomly omitting half of theExpand
One weird trick for parallelizing convolutional neural networks
I present a new way to parallelize the training of convolutional neural networks across multiple GPUs. The method scales significantly better than all alternatives when applied to modernExpand
Learning hand-eye coordination for robotic grasping with deep learning and large-scale data collection
The approach achieves effective real-time control, can successfully grasp novel objects, and corrects mistakes by continuous servoing, and illustrates that data from different robots can be combined to learn more reliable and effective grasping. Expand
Convolutional Deep Belief Networks on CIFAR-10
We describe how to train a two-layer convolutional Deep Belief Network (DBN) on the 1.6 million tiny images dataset. When training a convolutional DBN, one must decide what to do with the edge pixelsExpand
Transforming Auto-Encoders
It is argued that neural networks can be used to learn features that output a whole vector of instantiation parameters and this is a much more promising way of dealing with variations in position, orientation, scale and lighting than the methods currently employed in the neural networks community.

ChauffeurNet: Learning to Drive by Imitating the Best and Synthesizing the Worst
The ChauffeurNet model can handle complex situations in simulation, and the perturbations then provide an important signal for these losses and lead to robustness of the learned model. Expand
Factored 3-Way Restricted Boltzmann Machines For Modeling Natural Images
A factored 3-way RBM is proposed that uses the states of its hidden units to represent abnormalities in the local covariance structure of an image to provide a probabilistic framework for the widely used simple/complex cell architecture. Expand
