Can a biologically-plausible hierarchy e ectively replace face detection, alignment, and recognition pipelines?
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2014-03-27)
The standard approach to unconstrained face recognition in natural photographs is via a detection, alignment, recognition pipeline. While that approach has achieved impressive results, there are several reasons to be ...
Learning Real and Boolean Functions: When Is Deep Better Than Shallow
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2016-03-08)
We describe computational tasks - especially in vision - that correspond to compositional/hierarchical functions. While the universal approximation property holds both for hierarchical and shallow networks, we prove that ...
Complexity of Representation and Inference in Compositional Models with Part Sharing
(Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), arXiv, 2015-05-05)
This paper performs a complexity analysis of a class of serial and parallel compositional models of multiple objects and shows that they enable efficient representation and rapid inference. Compositional models are generative ...
