accelerated python learning 8-day day

Generally speaking , The objective function of supervised learning consists of loss function and regularization term .(Objective = Loss + Regularization)

Pytorch In general, the loss function in the training model is specified .

Be careful Pytorch The parameters of the built-in loss function and tensorflow Different , yes y_pred before ,y_true After , and Tensorflow yes y_true before ,y_pred After .

about The regression model , The commonly used built-in loss function is the mean square loss function nn.MSELoss .

about A dichotomous model , The binary cross entropy loss function is usually used nn.BCELoss ( The input is already sigmoid The result of activating the function )
perhaps nn.BCEWithLogitsLoss ( The input has not passed through nn.Sigmoid Activation function ) .

about Multiclassification model , Cross entropy loss function is generally recommended nn.CrossEntropyLoss.
(y_true It needs to be one-dimensional , It's a category code .y_pred Not passed nn.Softmax Activate .)

Besides , If there are more categories y_pred After nn.LogSoftmax Activate , have access to nn.NLLLoss Loss function (The negative log likelihood loss).
This method and direct use of nn.CrossEntropyLoss Equivalent .

If necessary , It's fine too Custom loss function , The custom loss function needs to receive two tensors y_pred,y_true As input parameter , And output a scalar as the loss function value .

Pytorch The regularization term in is usually added together with the loss function in a custom way as the objective function .

If you just use L2 Regularization , You can also use the optimizer's weight_decay Parameters to achieve the same effect .

``````import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import torch
from torch import nn
import torch.nn.functional as F
y_pred = torch.tensor([[10.0,0.0,-10.0],[8.0,8.0,8.0]])
y_true = torch.tensor([0,2])
# Direct call cross entropy loss
ce = nn.CrossEntropyLoss()(y_pred,y_true)
print(ce)
# It is equivalent to calculating first nn.LogSoftmax Activate , Call again NLLLoss
y_pred_logsoftmax = nn.LogSoftmax(dim = 1)(y_pred)
nll = nn.NLLLoss()(y_pred_logsoftmax,y_true)
print(nll)``````

tensor(0.5493)```

The built-in loss function has two forms: the realization of class and the realization of function .

Such as ：nn.BCE and F.binary_cross_entropy They're all binary cross entropy loss functions , The former is an implementation of a class , The latter is the implementation form of the function .

In fact, the implementation form of a class is usually the implementation form of calling function and using nn.Module After encapsulation, we get .

In general, we usually use the implementation form of class . They are packaged in torch.nn Under module , And the class name is Loss ending .

Some common built-in loss functions are described as follows .

• nn.MSELoss（ Loss of mean square error , It's also called L2 Loss , For regression ）

• nn.L1Loss （L1 Loss , It's also called absolute error loss , For regression ）

• nn.SmoothL1Loss ( smooth L1 Loss , When the input is in -1 To 1 Between time , Smooth to L2 Loss , For regression )

• nn.BCELoss ( Binary cross entropy , Used for dichotomies , The input has passed nn.Sigmoid Activate , For unbalanced data sets, you can use weigths Parameter adjustment category weight )

• nn.BCEWithLogitsLoss ( Binary cross entropy , Used for dichotomies , The input has not passed through nn.Sigmoid Activate )

• nn.CrossEntropyLoss ( Cross entropy , For multiple categories , requirement label Encode for sparsity , The input has not passed through nn.Softmax Activate , For unbalanced data sets, you can use weigths Parameter adjustment category weight )

• nn.NLLLoss ( Negative log likelihood loss , For multiple categories , requirement label Encode for sparsity , Input through nn.LogSoftmax Activate )

• nn.CosineSimilarity( Cosine similarity , It can be used for multi classification )

• nn.AdaptiveLogSoftmaxWithLoss ( A loss function which is suitable for very many categories and whose distribution is very uneven , It can adaptively combine multiple small categories into one cluster)

Two , Custom loss function

The custom loss function takes two tensors y_pred,y_true As input parameter , And output a scalar as the loss function value .

Also can be nn.Module Subclass , rewrite forward Method to realize the calculation logic of loss , So we can get the class implementation of loss function .

Here's a Focal Loss Custom implementation demonstration of .Focal Loss Is a kind of right binary_crossentropy The improved loss function form of .

It is compared when the sample is unbalanced and there are more easily classified samples binary_crossentropy With obvious advantages .

It has two adjustable parameters ,alpha Parameters and gamma Parameters . among alpha The parameter is mainly used to attenuate the weight of negative samples ,gamma The parameter is mainly used to attenuate the weight of easy training samples .

This makes the model more focused on positive samples and difficult samples . That's why this loss function is called Focal Loss.

``````class FocalLoss(nn.Module):
def __init__(self,gamma=2.0,alpha=0.75):

self.gamma = gamma
self.alpha = alpha

print("focal_loss(easy samples):", focal_loss(y_pred_easy,y_true_easy))
print("bce_loss(easy samples):", bce_loss(y_pred_easy,y_true_easy))
# so focal_loss Let the weight of the easy sample decay to the original 0.0005/0.1054 = 0.00474
# And let the weight of the difficult samples only decay to the original 0.0866/0.6931=0.12496
# So relatively speaking ,focal_loss You can attenuate the weight of easy samples .

FocalLoss You can refer to the following for a complete example ` Customize L1 and L2 Regularization term ` The example in , This example demonstrates how to customize the regularization item , It also demonstrates FocalLoss How to use .

3、 ... and , Customize L1 and L2 Regularization term

It is commonly believed L1 Regularization can produce sparse weight matrix , That is to produce a sparse model , Can be used for feature selection .

and L2 Regularization can prevent model over fitting （overfitting）. a certain extent ,L1 Can also prevent over fitting .

Let's take a dichotomy problem as an example , Show how to add customization to the objective function of the model L1 and L2 The method of regularizing terms .

This example also demonstrates the previous part of FocalLoss Use .

1, Prepare the data

def forward(self,x):
x = F.relu(self.fc1(x))
x = F.relu(self.fc2(x))
y = nn.Sigmoid()(self.fc3(x))
return y
model = DNNModel()
model.summary(input_shape =(2,))``````

3, Training models

Four , Through the optimizer L2 Regularization

If you just need to use L2 Regularization , You can also use the optimizer's weight_decay Parameter to implement .

weight_decay Parameters can set the attenuation of parameters during training , This sum L2 The effect of regularization is equivalent

Pytorch The optimizer supports a type of optimizer called Per-parameter options The operation of , It's a specific learning rate for each parameter , The weight decay rate specifies , To meet more detailed requirements .

``````weight_params = [param for name, param in model.named_parameters() if "bias" not in name]
bias_params = [param for name, param in model.named_parameters() if "bias" in name]
optimizer = torch.optim.SGD([{'params': weight_params, 'weight_decay':1e-5},
{'params': bias_params, 'weight_decay':0}],
lr=1e-2, momentum=0.9)``````
