An overview over Capsule Networks

Luca Alessandro Dombetzki, Chair Of Network Architectures
Hinton et. al recently published the paper "Dynamic Routing Between Capsules" [20], proposing a novel neural network architecture. This Capsule Network (CapsNet) outperforms state-of-the-art Convolutional Neural Networks on simple challenges like MNIST [13], MultiMNIST [20] or smallNORB [6] . In this paper, we describe multiple aspects of the current research in Capsule Networks. This includes explaining the shortcomings of CNNs, the idea and architecture of Capsule Networks and the evaluation
