My question is virtually identical to this SO question but for DL4j. In short, can I define a sliding autoencoder/operator in DL4J? This could apply to the input layer or even the result of a Conv2d layer.
The proposed solution for Tensorflow was to use the extract_image_patches function. I see that is available for DL4J as well, so that is my fallback.
Is that the idiomatic way to simulate a windowing operation? Seems like it would have non-trivial performance implications; though I haven’t tested it to verify.
I am unsure if this or stackoverflow is the correct place to ask this. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post general API questions.
