The background: DCLNs (Deep Convolutional Learning Networks) are doing very well
Over the last 3 years and increasingly so in the last few months, I have seen supervised DCLNs — feedforward and recurrent — do more and more of everything quite well. They seem to learn good representations for a growing number of speech and text problems (for a review by the pioneers in the field see LeCun, Bengio, Hinton, 2015). More interestingly, it is...
