Double Attention Networks

Learning to capture long-range relations is fundamental to image/video recognition. Existing CNN models generally rely on increasing depth to model such relations which is highly inefficient. On this seminar, we will discuss the “double attention block”, a novel (or not so novel) component from Facebook AI Research that aggregates and propagates informative global features from the entire spatio-temporal space of input images/videos. And also discuss their differences with SEnet’s.

And as a warmup we will have a little talk on how to read a paper since this is a kick-off for our yet another season of seminars.

Speaker: Rauf Kurbanov.
