Maxout is a kind of neural network activation function that I developed in January 2013. It works very well when trained with Geoff Hinton's dropout algorithm. I wrote an ICML paper about it with David Warde-Farley, Mehdi Mirza, Aaron Courville, and Yoshua Bengio. We used it to set the state-of-the-art on several benchmark tasks.
This is the project page for all things related to maxout. We might post future announcements related to it here.
