    Deep neural networks (DNNs) can be huge in size, requiring a considerable a mount of energy and computational resources to operate, which limits their applications in numerous scenarios. It is thus of interest to compress DNNs while maintaining their performance levels. We here propose a probabilistic importance inference approach for pruning DNNs. Specifically, we test the significance of the relevance of a connection in a DNN to the DNN’s outputs using a nonparemtric scoring testand keep only those significant ones. Experimental results show that the proposed approach achieves better lossless compression rates than existing techniques

  4. Traditional hypothesis-margin researches focus on obtaining large margins and feature selection. In this work, we show that the robustness of margins is also critical and can be measured using entropy. In addition, our approach provides clear mathematical formulations and explanations to uncover feature interactions, which is often lack in large hypothesis-margin based approaches. We design an algorithm, termed IMMIGRATE (Iterative max-min entropy margin-maximization with interaction terms), for training the weights associated with the interaction terms. IMMIGRATE simultaneously utilizes both local and global information and can be used as a base learner in Boosting. We evaluate IMMIGRATE in a wide range of tasks, in which it demonstrates exceptional robustness and achieves the state-of-the-art results with high interpretability.
