Defined in tensorflow/contrib/model_pruning/python/

Get a tf.HParams object with the default values for the hyperparameters.

name: string name of the pruning specification. Used for adding summaries and ops under a common tensorflow name_scope begin_pruning_step: integer the global step at which to begin pruning end_pruning_step: integer the global step at which to terminate pruning. Defaults to -1 implying that pruning continues till the training stops do_not_prune: list of strings list of layers that are not pruned threshold_decay: float the decay factor to use for exponential decay of the thresholds pruning_frequency: integer How often should the masks be updated? (in # of global_steps) nbins: integer number of bins to use for histogram computation block_height: integer number of rows in a block (defaults to 1) block_width: integer number of cols in a block (defaults to 1) block_pooling_function: string Whether to perform average (AVG) or max (MAX) pooling in the block (default: AVG) initial_sparsity: float initial sparsity value target_sparsity: float target sparsity value sparsity_function_begin_step: integer the global step at this which the gradual sparsity function begins to take effect sparsity_function_end_step: integer the global step used as the end point for the gradual sparsity function sparsity_function_exponent: float exponent = 1 is linearly varying sparsity between initial and final. exponent > 1 varies more slowly towards the end than the beginning

We use the following sparsity function:

num_steps = (sparsity_function_end_step - sparsity_function_begin_step)/pruning_frequency sparsity(step) = (initial_sparsity - target_sparsity)* [1-step/(num_steps -1)]**exponent + target_sparsity
