Assume I have a CNN that in the first (conv) layer takes a 1-channel signal (the input) and gives a 2-channel output. Let's further assume that the rest of the net has symmetric architecture from the point-of-view of any of those channels. Moreover, let's assume all the weights are initialized by zero (or the same number).
How do we know that the feature maps (kernels of the channels) after training are not similar given the symmetry in such network? Specifically, what is unreasonable to have kernels with identical feature maps?
