Probability distributions over sequences in pytorch and cupy

Project description


Probability distributions over sequences in pytorch and cupy.


pip install seqdist

How to use

Comparison against builtin pytorch implementation of the standard CTC loss:

sample_inputs = logits, targets, input_lengths, target_lengths = ctc.generate_sample_inputs(T_min=450, T_max=500, N=128, C=20, L_min=80, L_max=100)
print('pytorch loss: {:.4f}'.format(ctc.loss_pytorch(*sample_inputs)))
print('seqdist loss: {:.4f}'.format(ctc.loss_cupy(*sample_inputs)))
pytorch loss: 12.8080
seqdist loss: 12.8080

Speed comparison

bwd: 9.69ms (8.33-10.88ms)

report(benchmark_fwd_bwd(ctc.loss_cupy, *sample_inputs))

betas = [0.1, 1.0, 10.]
alignments = {'beta={:.1f}'.format(beta): to_np(ctc.soft_alignments(*sample_inputs, beta=beta)) for beta in betas}
alignments['viterbi'] = to_np(ctc.viterbi_alignments(*sample_inputs))
fig, axs = plt.subplots(2, 2, figsize=(15, 8))
for (ax, (title, data)) in zip(np.array(axs).flatten(), alignments.items()):
    ax.imshow(data[:, 0].T, vmax=0.05);
