On the convolutional neural network, there used one or more pooling layers. As far as I know many tutorials instruct you to set it either
3 for the window size. For example, in this tutorial:
After some ReLU layers, programmers may choose to apply a pooling layer. It is also referred to as a downsampling layer. In this category, there are also several layer options, with maxpooling being the most popular. This basically takes a filter (normally of size 2x2) and a stride of the same length. It then applies it to the input volume and outputs the maximum number in every subregion that the filter convolves around.
I make the relevant part bold. But why is it usually set to
2 (or in some cases
3)? How can I know what size is appropriate? Should I just tweak the parameter via a trial and error like a brute-force way, or is there any tips on deciding the window size?
