What are the state-of-the-art results on the generalization ability of deep learning methods?

I've read a few classic papers on different architectures of deep CNNs used to solve varied image-related problems. I'm aware there's some paradox in how deep networks generalize well despite ...

Is pooling a kind of dropout?

If I got well the idea of dropout, it allows improving the sparsity of the information that comes from one layer to another by setting some weights to zero. On the other hand, pooling, let's say max-...

Is the inductive bias always a useful bias for generalisation?

Is it true that a bias is said to be inductive iff it is useful in generalising the data? Or does inductive bias can also refer to the assumptions that may cause a decrease in performance? Suppose I ...
