Lambda Networks - Pytorch

Implementation of λ Networks, a new approach to image recognition that reaches SOTA on ImageNet. The new method utilizes λ layer, which captures interactions by transforming contexts into linear functions, termed lambdas, and applying these linear functions to each input separately.

Install

$ pip install lambda-networks

Usage

Global context

import torch
from lambda_networks import LambdaLayer

layer = LambdaLayer(
    dim = 32,       # channels going in
    dim_out = 32,   # channels out
    n = 64 * 64,    # number of input pixels (64 x 64 image)
    dim_k = 16,     # key dimension
    heads = 4,      # number of heads, for multi-query
    dim_u = 1       # 'intra-depth' dimension
)

x = torch.randn(1, 32, 64, 64)
layer(x) # (1, 32, 64, 64)

Localized context

import torch
from lambda_networks import LambdaLayer

layer = LambdaLayer(
    dim = 32,
    dim_out = 32,
    r = 23,         # the receptive field for relative positional encoding (23 x 23)
    dim_k = 16,
    heads = 4,
    dim_u = 4
)

x = torch.randn(1, 32, 64, 64)
layer(x) # (1, 32, 64, 64)

For fun, you can also import this as follows

from lambda_networks import λLayer

Tensorflow / Keras version

Shinel94 has added a Keras implementation! It won't be officially supported in this repository, so either copy / paste the code under ./lambda_networks/tfkeras.py or make sure to install tensorflow and keras before running the following.

import tensorflow as tf
from lambda_networks.tfkeras import LambdaLayer

layer = LambdaLayer(
    dim_out = 32,
    r = 23,
    dim_k = 16,
    heads = 4,
    dim_u = 1
)

x = tf.random.normal((1, 64, 64, 16)) # channel last format
layer(x) # (1, 64, 64, 32)
