Residual Network (ResNet)

After the celebrated victory of AlexNet at the ILSVRC2012 classification contest, deep Residual Network was arguably the most groundbreaking work in the computer vision/deep learning community in the last few years. ResNet makes it possible to train up to hundreds or even thousands of layers and still achieves compelling performance.Thanks to this technique they were able to train a network with 152 layers while still having lower complexity than VGGNet. It achieves a top-5 error rate of 3.57% which beats human-level performance on this dataset.
