Abstract: In Deep Learning, Ensembles are usually created as an afterthought. Using Toupee, the process of creating an Ensemble becomes integral to the Deep Learning process, with novel ensemble methods that integrate with the deep learning algorithms at hand. I will show how toupee works and explore some of these methods, using standard computer vision benchmark datasets.
