Deep learning is a powerful approach with good performance on many different tasks. However, these models often require massive computational resources. It is a worrying trend that we increasingly need models that work well on more complex problems. In this paper, we propose and verify the effectiveness and efficiency of SCNN, an innovative neural network inspired by the swarm concept. In addition to introducing the relevant theories, our detailed experiments suggest that fewer parameters may
