Dropout has been commonly used to quantify prediction uncertainty, i.e, the
variations of model predictions on a given input example. However, using
dropout in practice can be expensive as it requires running dropout inferences
many times.


In this paper, we study how to estimate dropout prediction uncertainty in a
resource-efficient manner. We demonstrate that we can use neuron activation
strengths to estimate dropout prediction uncertainty under different dropout
settings and on a variety of tasks using three large datasets, MovieLens, …
