Keras Attention Many to One
Keras Attention Mechanism
pip install attention
Many-to-one attention mechanism for Keras.
In this experiment, we demonstrate that using attention yields a higher accuracy on the IMDB dataset. We consider two LSTM networks: one with this attention layer and the other one with a fully connected layer. Both have the same number of parameters for a fair comparison (250K).
Here are the results on 10 runs. For every run, we record the max accuracy on the test set for 10 epochs. It does not have to be the final accuracy at the end of the training.
|Measure||No Attention (250K params)||Attention (250K params)|
As expected, there is a boost in accuracy for the model with attention. It also reduces the variability between the runs, which is something nice to have.
Adding two numbers
Let's consider the task of adding two numbers that come right after some delimiters (0 in this case):
x = [1, 2, 3, 0, 4, 5, 6, 0, 7, 8]. Result is
y = 4 + 7 = 11.
The attention is expected to be the highest after the delimiters. An overview of the training is shown below, where the top represents the attention map and the bottom the ground truth. As the training progresses, the model learns the task and the attention map converges to the ground truth.
