Block-Incremental Deep Learning Models for Timely Up-to-Date Learning Results

Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE,volume 461)


As mobile devices and personal computers have been more frequently used through the Internet, data generated by not only people but also devices have been continuously piling up. The data growing endlessly is called Big Data and Deep Learning algorithms with the Big Data have been introducing the next level of artificial intelligence. It is generally applicable that the more data deep learning algorithms train, the more accurate the deep learning algorithms are. Then, an important problem is which size of data is enough for deep learning algorithms to train the data. In many cases, it is not practical that we wait for the data to grow bigger enough, and thus we need a new learning model that can reduce this latency time and timely derive learning results with useful accuracy. In this paper, we propose novel block-incremental learning models for deep learning and experimentally show that the proposed model can timely derive learning results with useful accuracy and the final accuracy is even better than the traditional deep learning algorithms with the same size of training data.
