A Simple Fix for Convolutional Neural Network via Coordinate Embedding

  title={A Simple Fix for Convolutional Neural Network via Coordinate Embedding},
  author={Liliang Ren and Zhuonan Hao},
Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) has been widely applied in the realm of computer vision. However, given the fact that CNN models are translation invariant, they are not aware of the coordinate information of each pixel. Thus the generalization ability of CNN will be limited since the coordinate information is crucial for a model to learn affine transformations which directly operate on the coordinate of each pixel. In this project, we proposed a simple approach to incorporate the coordinate… Expand


An Intriguing Failing of Convolutional Neural Networks and the CoordConv Solution
Preliminary evidence that swapping convolution for CoordConv can improve models on a diverse set of tasks is shown, which works by giving convolution access to its own input coordinates through the use of extra coordinate channels without sacrificing the computational and parametric efficiency of ordinary convolution.

SSD: Single Shot MultiBox Detector
The approach, named SSD, discretizes the output space of bounding boxes into a set of default boxes over different aspect ratios and scales per feature map location, which makes SSD easy to train and straightforward to integrate into systems that require a detection component. Expand
Evaluation of deep neural networks for traffic sign detection systems
This paper analyses the state-of-the-art of several object-detection systems combined with various feature extractors previously developed by their corresponding authors, finding that Faster R-CNN Inception Resnet V2 obtains the best mAP, while R-FCN Resnet 101 strikes the best trade-off between accuracy and execution time.
