Dilated or atrous convolution is the same convolution, only with pixel skipping.

If you remember how regular convolution works, then dilated convolution skips pixels with 2 diraction: width and hight and as a result it takes much bigger part of the image for every step of the convolution.

If you put dilation rate 2, then it will take 2 times bigger part of the image for every step. it will take every second pixel of that part
