About the rule on pre-trained model

#1

Hi all,

According to the rule, any file larger than 15MB will be removed to prevent using pretrained models. So what if my pretrained model is much smaller? Say only 1.5MB. Is it accpetable?

I would assume no pretrained models are allowed, and this is enforced by removing “large” files.

If so, it is too relaxed. Our models are well below 10MB, regardless of the network architecture, and even if models were larger you could prune them to 90% of the original size and still retain most of the performance.

Miffyli is correct here - even pre-training using a small number of learned weights is not allowed.

We will be investigating code as well to validate submissions, the large file restriction simply provides an easy way to enforce the pre-training rule generally
