Deep Unsupervised Network for Visual Rocognition

  • We develop the multi-layer unsupervised neural networks named Stacked Convolutional Denoising Auto-Encoders for object recognition tasks.
  • Our model is composed of layers of Auto-Encoders and the parameters are updated by greedy layer-wise training.

Structured Decorrelated Constraint for Model Regularization

  • We propose a regularization method to aleviate the overfitting problem in CNNs.
  • Our Structured Decorrelation Constraint can be applied to both the convolutional feature maps and the fully connected layers. It can be optimized along with the classification loss.

Rich and Robust Feature Pooling in Unsupervised Framework

  • We propose a novel pooling method to generate better statistics from the feature maps leant by the unsupervised frameworks.
  • Our method can extract rich and robust features from the feature maps, outperforming the widely used Max pooling, Average pooling and Stochastic pooling.
