Utilities for nolearn.lasagne

Project description

# nolearn-utils

[![Build Status](](

Iterators and handlers for nolearn.lasagne to allow efficient real-time image augmentation and training progress monitoring

## Real-time image augmentation

- `ShuffleBatchIteratorMixin` to shuffle training samples
- `ReadImageBatchIteratorMixin` to transform image file path into image as color or as gray, and with specified image size
- `RandomFlipBatchIteratorMixin` to randomly (uniform) flip the image horizontally or verticaly
- `AffineTransformBatchIteratorMixin` to apply affine transformation (scale, rotate, translate) to randomly selected images from the given transformation options - `BufferedBatchIteratorMixin` to perform transformation in another thread automatically and put the result in a buffer (default size = 5)
- `LCNBatchIteratorMixin` to perform local contrast normalization to images
- `MeanSubtractBatchIteratorMixin` to subtract samples from the pre-calculated mean

Example of using iterators as below:

train_iterator_mixins = [
TrainIterator = make_iterator('TrainIterator', train_iterator_mixins)

train_iterator_kwargs = {
'buffer_size': 5,
'batch_size': batch_size,
'read_image_size': (image_size, image_size),
'read_image_as_gray': False,
'read_image_prefix_path': './data/train/',
'flip_horizontal_p': 0.5,
'flip_vertical_p': 0,
'affine_p': 0.5,
'affine_scale_choices': np.linspace(0.75, 1.25, 5),
'affine_translation_choices': np.arange(-3, 4, 1),
'affine_rotation_choices': np.arange(-45, 50, 5)
train_iterator = TrainIterator(**train_iterator_kwargs)

The `BaseBatchIterator` is also modified from `nolearn.lasagne` to provide a progress bar for training process for each iteration

## Handlers

- `EarlyStopping` stops training when loss stop improving
- `StepDecay` to gradually reduce a parameter (e.g. learning rate) over time
- `SaveTrainingHistory` to save training history (e.g. training loss)
- `PlotTrainingHistory` to plot out training loss and validation accuracy
over time after each iteration with matplotlib

## Examples

Example code requires `scikit-learn`


`example/mnist/` should produce a model of about 99.5% accuracy in less than 50 epoch.

MNIST data can be downloaded from

### CIFAR10

CIFAR10 images can be downloaded from [Kaggle]( Place the downloaded data as follows:

├── data
│   ├── train
│ | ├── 1.png
│ | ├── 2.png
│ | ├── 3.png
│ | ├── ...
│   └── trainLabels.csv

`example/cifat10/` should produce a model at about 85% accuracy at 100 epoch. Images are read from disk and augmented at training time (from another thread)
