In this chapter, we introduce the general framework of the tree-based convolutional neural network (TBCNN). We first present the design philosophy and the general formula of TBCNN. Then we introduce several applications of TBCNN that will be analyzed in this book. We also highlight the technical difficulties of designing TBCNN in different scenarios, which will be addressed in future chapters.
