Holistic SparseCNN: Forging the Trident of Accuracy, Speed, and Size

  title={Holistic SparseCNN: Forging the Trident of Accuracy, Speed, and Size},
  author={Jongsoo Park and Sheng R. Li and Wei Wen and Hai Li and Yiran Chen and Pradeep Dubey},
We present Holistic SparseCNN, a sparse convolutional neural network design that simultaneously optimizes convolution layers (for classification speed) and fully connected layers (for model size), while maintaining the accuracy. We directly apply convolutions to tensors without bandwidth-wasting lowering step, which is critical for sparse convolution that is more prone to be bandwidth bound than its dense counterpart. Our cross-layer training method balances sparsity among multiple layers to… CONTINUE READING
