Pooling Operations

Pooling Operations are used to pool features together, often downsampling the feature map to a smaller size. They can also induce favourable properties such as translation invariance in image classification, as well as bring together information from different parts of a network in tasks like object detection (e.g. pooling different scales). Below you can find a continuously updating list of pooling operations.
