Key Insights

  • 🏛️ Inception Networks are built using Inception modules, which combine convolutions of different sizes.
  • 🔁 The Inception Network architecture consists of repeating Inception modules and includes side branches for regularization.
  • #️⃣ Shrinking the number of channels using 1x1 convolutions helps maintain output dimensions during concatenation.


in the previous video you've already seen all the basic building blocks of the inception Network in this video let's see how you can put these building blocks together to build your own inception network so the inception module takes as input the activation or the output from some previous layer so let's say for the sake of argument this is 28 by 2...

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an Inception module?

An Inception module combines different types of convolutions (1x1, 3x3, 5x5) to generate multiple output channels.

Q: How are the outputs from Inception modules concatenated?

The outputs are concatenated by using 1x1 convolutions to shrink the number of channels and pooling layers to maintain output dimensions.

Q: What is the purpose of the side branches in the Inception Network?

The side branches aim to ensure that features learned at intermediate layers are helpful for predicting the output label and prevent overfitting.

Q: Are there different versions of the Inception algorithm?

Yes, there are newer versions like Inception v2, v3, and v4, as well as combinations with the residual idea for improved performance.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Inception modules take activations from previous layers and use 1x1, 3x3, and 5x5 convolutions to produce multiple outputs.

  • These outputs can be concatenated by shrinking the number of channels using 1x1 convolutions and pooling.

  • The Inception Network consists of repeating these modules, with additional side branches for regularization.

  • Various versions of the Inception algorithm, such as Inception v2, v3, and v4, have been developed.
