tf.contrib.kfac.fisher_factors.FullyConnectedDiagonalFactor

Class FullyConnectedDiagonalFactor

Inherits From: DiagonalFactor

Defined in tensorflow/contrib/kfac/python/ops/fisher_factors.py.

FisherFactor for a diagonal approx of a fully-connected layer's Fisher.

Given in = [batch_size, input_size] and out_grad = [batch_size, output_size], approximates the covariance as,

Cov(in, out) = (1/batchsize) sum{i} outer(in[i], out_grad[i]) ** 2.0

where the square is taken element-wise.

Methods

__init__

__init__(
    inputs,
    outputs_grads,
    has_bias=False
)

Instantiate FullyConnectedDiagonalFactor.

Args:

  • inputs: List of Tensors of shape [batch_size, input_size]. Inputs to this layer. List index is towers.
  • outputs_grads: List of Tensors, each of shape [batch_size, output_size], which are the gradients of the loss with respect to the layer's outputs. First index is source, second is tower.

  • has_bias: bool. If True, append '1' to each input.

get_cov

get_cov()

Get full covariance matrix.

Returns:

Tensor of shape [n, n]. Represents all parameter-parameter correlations captured by this FisherFactor.

get_cov_var

get_cov_var()

Get variable backing this FisherFactor.

May or may not be the same as self.get_cov()

Returns:

Variable of shape self._cov_shape.

instantiate_cov_variables

instantiate_cov_variables()

Makes the internal cov variable(s).

instantiate_inv_variables

instantiate_inv_variables()

Makes the internal "inverse" variable(s).

left_multiply_matpower

left_multiply_matpower(
    x,
    exp,
    damping_func
)

Left multiplies 'x' by matrix power of this factor (w/ damping applied).

This calculation is essentially: (C + damping * I)**exp * x where * is matrix-multiplication, ** is matrix power, I is the identity matrix, and C is the matrix represented by this factor.

x can represent either a matrix or a vector. For some factors, 'x' might represent a vector but actually be stored as a 2D matrix for convenience.

Args:

  • x: Tensor. Represents a single vector. Shape depends on implementation.
  • exp: float. The matrix exponent to use.
  • damping_func: A function that computes a 0-D Tensor or a float which will be the damping value used. i.e. damping = damping_func().

Returns:

Tensor of same shape as 'x' representing the result of the multiplication.

make_covariance_update_op

make_covariance_update_op(ema_decay)

Constructs and returns the covariance update Op.

Args:

  • ema_decay: The exponential moving average decay (float or Tensor).

Returns:

An Op for updating the covariance Variable referenced by _cov.

make_inverse_update_ops

make_inverse_update_ops()

Create and return update ops corresponding to registered computations.

register_matpower

register_matpower(
    exp,
    damping_func
)

right_multiply_matpower

right_multiply_matpower(
    x,
    exp,
    damping_func
)

Right multiplies 'x' by matrix power of this factor (w/ damping applied).

This calculation is essentially: x * (C + damping * I)**exp where * is matrix-multiplication, ** is matrix power, I is the identity matrix, and C is the matrix represented by this factor.

Unlike left_multiply_matpower, x will always be a matrix.

Args:

  • x: Tensor. Represents a single vector. Shape depends on implementation.
  • exp: float. The matrix exponent to use.
  • damping_func: A function that computes a 0-D Tensor or a float which will be the damping value used. i.e. damping = damping_func().

Returns:

Tensor of same shape as 'x' representing the result of the multiplication.
