Vision Transformers (ViTs) are becoming more popular and dominating technique for various vision tasks, compare to Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). As a demanding technique in computer vision, ViTs have been successfully solved various vision problems while focusing on long-range relationships. In this paper, we begin by introducing the fundamental concepts and background of the self-attention mechanism. Next, we provide a comprehensive overview of recent top-performing ViT methods

We thoroughly compare the performance of various ViT algorithms and most representative CNN methods on popular benchmark datasets. Finally, we explore some limitations with insightful observations and provide further research direction. The project page along with the collections of papers are available at
