Generic Deep Networks with Wavelet Scattering

Edouard Oyallon, Stéphane Mallat, Laurent Sifre

We introduce a two-layer wavelet scattering network, for object classification. This scattering transform computes a spatial wavelet transform on the first layer and a new joint wavelet transform along spatial, angular and scale variables in the second layer. Numerical experiments demonstrate that this two layer convolution network, which involves no learning and no max pooling, performs efficiently on complex image data sets such as CalTech, with structural objects variability and clutter. It opens the possibility to simplify deep neural network learning by initializing the first layers with wavelet filters.
