paper summary: “Arbitrary Style Transfer in Real-time with Adaptive Instance Normalization”

arxiv: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1703.06868.pdf key points arbitrary style transfer in real time use adaptive instance normalization(AdaIN) layers which aligns the mean and variance of content features allows to control content-style trade-off, style interpolation, color/spatial control previous works optimization approach using backprop of network to minimize style loss and content loss. This can be Read more…

paper summary: “Aggregated Residual Transformations for Deep Neural Networks” (ResNext Paper)

key point compared to resnet, the residual blocks are upgraded to have multiple “paths” or as the paper puts it “cardinality” which can be treated as another model architecture design hyper parameter. resnext architectures that have sufficient cardinality shows improved performance tldr: use improved residual blocks compared to resnet Different Read more…
