The recently proposed stochastic residual networks selectively activate or bypass the layers during training, based on independent stochastic choices, each of which following a probability distribution that is fixed in advance. In this paper we present a first exploration on the use of an epoch-dependent distribution, starting with a higher probability of bypassing deeper layers and then activating them more frequently as training progresses. Preliminary results are mixed, yet they show some potential of adding an epoch-dependent management of distributions, worth of further investigation. Read More

In this paper we tackle the problem of image search when the query is a short textual description of the image the user is looking for. We choose to implement the actual search process as a similarity search in a visual feature space, by learning to translate a textual query into a visual representation. Searching in the visual feature space has the advantage that any update to the translation model does not require to reprocess the, typically huge, image collection on which the search is performed.
