题目:What Deep CNNs Benefit from Global Covariance Pooling: An Optimization Perspective

时间:12月20日 10:00

地点:综合楼701

嘉宾:王旗龙博士

 

摘要:Recent works have demonstrated that global covariance pooling (GCP) has the ability to improve performance of deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) on visual classification task. Despite considerable advance, the reasons on effectiveness of GCP on deep CNNs have not been well studied. In this paper, we make an attempt to understand what deep CNNs benefit from GCP in a viewpoint of optimization. Specifically, we show that GCP can make the optimization landscape more smooth and the gradients more predictive. Furthermore, we discuss the connection between GCP and second-order optimization for deep CNNs. More importantly, above findings can account for several merits of covariance pooling for training deep CNNs that have not been recognized previously or fully explored, including significant acceleration of network convergence, stronger robustness to distorted examples generated by image corruptions and perturbations, and good generalization ability to different vision tasks. We conduct extensive experiments using various deep CNN architectures on diversified tasks, and the results provide strong support to our findings.
