GliaML - Python Machine Learning Library

Project description

# GliaML

GliaML is simple, yet powerful machine learning library written in Python.

Currently, it allows a user to easily create a multi-layer perceptron neural network with the following features:

  1. Allow backpropagation with the sigmoid, tanh, and ReLU activation functions.
  2. Allow normalisation of a classifier with the softmax function.
  3. Allow learning rate hyperparameter functionality (including biases)
  4. Allow L2 regularisation to prevent over-fitting

## Creating a Network

In GliaML, neural networks are implemented as objects containing a collection of layers, which are in turn objects. To create a layer, first a list of activation functions for each neuron in the list must be chosen. Then the layer can be created. Bias functionality can be

activations1 = [activation_id for i in range(0, num_neurons)] layer1 = NetworkLayer(num_inputs, num_neurons, activations1, bias=False)

After a satisfactory number of layers have been created, the neural network itself can be invoked by calling the constructor and providing all the layers. If

network = NeuralNetwork(l2_regularization=0.03, layer1, layer2, …)

## Training a network

After creating your network, you’ll want to provide training and testing data. These should be formatted as NumPy arrays. For example, let us consider the following training set.

training_inputs = np.array([[1, 0, 1], [0, 0, 1], [1, 1, 0], [0, 1, 0]]) training_outputs = np.array([[1, 1, 0, 0]]).T

The solution is whether or not there is a 1 or 0 in the 3rd place of the input array. We now need to train the network. We can either use mean-squared error or cross-entropy loss.

network.train_mean_squared_error(training_inputs, training_outputs, num_iterations,
learning_rate=0.05, bias_learning_rate=0.05)

We can now see the network’s response on a problem it hasn’t seen before.

answer = network.think(np.array([1, 1, 1])) print(answer[-1])

See [example.py](https://github.com/Archiecool4/GliaML/blob/master/example.py) for another usage example.
