There are so many CNNs out there and im trying to do a comparison between some of them in my paper which networks should I use? Resnet, vgg and inception are obvious but I need 3 or 4 others. which ones should I choose? There are so many variations out there like Xception ,resnext and ... that im confused. Which of these networks are most used in the academic papers?


It largely depends what kind of paper you are writing — you haven't provided too much information in that regard. You could discuss a selection of models that have scored the highest on ImageNet. Most of these networks have historical significance, and brought a new aspect to the table.


Following list of CNNs are most popular in research papers. And since, you are doing a comparative study, it would be interesting to choose from the below list.

  • Xception
  • VGG16
  • VGG19
  • ResNet,
  • ResNetV2
  • InceptionV3
  • InceptionResNetV2
  • MobileNet
  • MobileNetV2
  • DenseNet
  • NASNet
  • $\begingroup$ between dense net or InceptionResnet which one's result would be more interesting in a comparison? i mean which one is really different from resnet and vgg $\endgroup$ – Moeinh77 Sep 23 '19 at 16:26
