How do neural networks deal with inputs of different sizes that are padded in order to have them of the same size?

I am trying to create an environment for RL where the size of my input (observation space) is not fixed. As a way around it, I thought about padding the size to a maximum value and then assigning &...

Is reconciling shape discrepancies the only purpose of padding?

Padding is a technique used in some of the domains of artificial intelligence. Data is generally available in different shapes. But in order to pass the data as input to a model in deep learning, the ...

What is the difference between zero-padding and character-padding in Recurrent Neural Networks?

For RNN's to work efficiently, we vectorize the operations, which results in an input matrix of shape (m, max_seq_len) where m ...

Transpose convolution in TiF-GAN: How does "same" padding works?

This question should be quite generic but I faced the problem in the case of the TiF-GAN generator so I am going to use it as an example. (Link to paper) If you check the penultimate page in the ...
