Is there any existing mechanism that allows us to pass input from randomly selected layers of neural network per iteration?

Consider the following neural network with $\ell$ layers. $$i_0 \rightarrow h_1 \rightarrow h_2 \rightarrow h_3 \cdots \rightarrow h_{\ell-1} \rightarrow o_{\ell} ,$$ where $i, h, o$ stands for ...

What is the difference between the forward pass of the Multi-Layer Perceptron, Deep AutoEncoder and Deep Belief Network?

Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP), Deep AutoEncoder (DAE), and Deep Belief Network (DBN) are trained differently. However, do they follow the same process during the inference phase, i.e., do they ...

How can I perform the forward pass in a neural network evolved with NEAT, given that some connections may not exist or there may be loopy connections?

I have a problem that arose as part of a NEAT (Neuro Evolution Through Augmenting Topologies) implementation that I am writing. I am wanting it to produce topologies or graphs that describe neural ...

What is the Preferred Mathematical Representation for a Forward Pass in a Neural Network?

I know this may be a question of semantics but I always see different articles explain forward pass slightly different. e.g. Sometimes they represent a forward pass to a hidden layer in a standard ...

What is the computational complexity of the forward pass of a convolutional neural network?

How do I determine the computational complexity (big-O notation) of the forward pass of a convolutional neural network? Let's assume for simplicity that we use zero-padding such that the input size ...
