ShuffleNet: An Extremely Efficient Convolutional Neural Network for Mobile Devices

Megvii Inc (a.k.a Face++) introduced ShuffleNet, which they claim to be an extremely computation efficient CNN architecture, designed for mobile devices with computing power of 10-150 MFLOPs. The ShuffleNet utilizes pointwise group convolution and channel shuffle to reduce computation cost while maintaining accuracy. It manages to obtain lower top-1 error than the MobileNet system on […]
