Reading: Deep Roots — Improving CNN Efficiency with Hierarchical Filter Groups (Image Classification)

Similar or Higher Accuracy Than the Baseline Architectures Such as NIN, ResNet & GoogLeNet, with Much Less Computation & Smaller Model Size

For a convolution, it is unlikely that every filter (or neuron) in a deep neural network needs to depend on the output of all the filters in the previous layer. In fact, reducing filter co-dependence in deep networks has been shown to benefit generalization.
