Large neural networks are complex and have a high potential to perform more complex tasks. But unfortunately, it is not easy to validate such large networks, and therefore there is no guarantee that we use the total capacity of the neural network. In contrast, smaller neural networks are easier to validate and deploy.

Knowledge distillation is a process of transferring knowledge from a large neural network or set of networks to a smaller one with an acceptable reduction in accuracy loss. This process helps compress… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
