We have explored MobileNet V2 architecture in depth. MobileNet V2 model has 53 convolution layers and 1 AvgPool with nearly 350 GFLOP. It has two main components:

  • Inverted Residual Block
  • Bottleneck Residual Block

There are two types of Convolution layers in MobileNet V2 architecture:

  • 1x1 Convolution
  • 3x3 Depthwise Convolution

These are the two different components in MobileNet V2 model:

conv_mobilenet_v2

Each block has 3 different layers:

  • 1x1 Convolution with Relu6
  • Depthwise Convolution
  • 1x1 Convolution without any linearity

There are Stride 1 Blocks and Stride 2 Blocks. The internal components of the two blocks are as follows:

stride_block_mobilenet

Stride 1 Block:

  • Input
  • 1x1 Convolution with Relu6
  • Depthwise Convolution with Relu6
  • 1x1 Convolution without any linearity
  • Add

Stride 2 Block:

  • Input
  • 1x1 Convolution with Relu6
  • Depthwise Convolution with stride=2 and Relu6
  • 1x1 Convolution without any linearity
