Efficient High-Resolution Deep Learning: A Survey


Cameras in modern devices such as smartphones, satellites and medical equipment are capable of capturing very high-resolution images and videos. Such high-resolution data often need to be processed by deep learning models for cancer detection, automated road navigation, weather prediction, surveillance, optimizing agricultural processes and many other applications. Using high-resolution images and videos as direct inputs for deep learning models creates many challenges due to their high number of parameters, computation cost, inference latency and GPU memory consumption. Simple approaches such as resizing the images to a lower resolution are common in the literature, however, they typically significantly decrease accuracy. Several works in the literature propose better alternatives in order to deal with the challenges of high-resolution data and improve accuracy and speed while complying with hardware limitations and time restrictions. This survey describes such efficient high-resolution deep learning methods, summarizes real-world applications of high-resolution deep learning, and pro- vides comprehensive information about available high-resolution datasets.
