Implicit Neural Representation (INR) has recently attracted considerable attention for storing various types of signals in continuous forms. The existing INR networks require lengthy training processes and high-performance computational resources. In this paper, we propose a novel sub-optimal ensemble architecture for INR that resolves the aforementioned problems. In this architecture, the representation task is divided into several sub-tasks done by independent sub-networks. We show that the performance of the proposed ensemble INR architecture may decrease if the dimensions of sub-networks increase. Hence, it is vital to suggest an optimization algorithm to find the sub-optimal structure of the ensemble network, which is done in this paper. According to the simulation results, the proposed architecture not only has significantly fewer floating-point operations (FLOPs) and less training time, but it also has better performance in terms of Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) compared to those of its counterparts.
