πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Usage

Loading data for image classification

Chitra dataloader and datagenerator modules for loading data. dataloader is a minimal dataloader that returns tf.data.Dataset object. datagenerator provides flexibility to users on how they want to load and manipulate the data.

import numpy as np
import chitra
from chitra.dataloader import Clf
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt


clf_dl = Clf()
data = clf_dl.from_folder(cat_dog_path, target_shape=(224, 224))
clf_dl.show_batch(8, figsize=(8, 8))

Image datagenerator

Dataset class provides the flexibility to load image dataset by updating components of the class.

Components of Dataset class are:

  • image file generator
  • resizer
  • label generator
  • image loader

These components can be updated with custom function by the user according to their dataset structure. For example the Tiny Imagenet dataset is organized as-

train_folder/
.....folder1/
    .....file.txt
    .....folder2/
           .....image1.jpg
           .....image2.jpg
                     .
                     .
                     .
           ......imageN.jpg

The inbuilt file generator search for images on the folder1, now we can just update the image file generator and rest of the functionality will remain same.

Dataset also support progressive resizing of images.

Updating component

from chitra.datagenerator import Dataset

ds = Dataset(data_path)
# it will load the folders and NOT images
ds.filenames[:3]
Output No item present in the image size list ['/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02795169/n02795169_boxes.txt', '/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02795169/images', '/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02769748/images']
def load_files(path):
    return glob(f'{path}/*/images/*')


def get_label(path):
    return path.split('/')[-3]


ds.update_component('get_filenames', load_files)
ds.filenames[:3]
Output get_filenames updated with No item present in the image size list ['/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02795169/images/n02795169_369.JPEG', '/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02795169/images/n02795169_386.JPEG', '/Users/aniket/Pictures/data/tiny-imagenet-200/train/n02795169/images/n02795169_105.JPEG']

Progressive resizing

It is the technique to sequentially resize all the images while training the CNNs on smaller to bigger image sizes. Progressive Resizing is described briefly in his terrific fastai course, β€œPractical Deep Learning for Coders”. A great way to use this technique is to train a model with smaller image size say 64x64, then use the weights of this model to train another model on images of size 128x128 and so on. Each larger-scale model incorporates the previous smaller-scale model layers and weights in its architecture. ~KDnuggets

image_sz_list = [(28, 28), (32, 32), (64, 64)]

ds = Dataset(data_path, image_size=image_sz_list)
ds.update_component('get_filenames', load_files)
ds.update_component('get_label', get_label)

# first call to generator
for img, label in ds.generator():
    print('first call to generator:', img.shape)
    break

# seconds call to generator
for img, label in ds.generator():
    print('seconds call to generator:', img.shape)
    break

# third call to generator
for img, label in ds.generator():
    print('third call to generator:', img.shape)
    break
Output get_filenames updated with get_label updated with first call to generator: (28, 28, 3) seconds call to generator: (32, 32, 3) third call to generator: (64, 64, 3)

tf.data support

Creating a tf.data dataloader was never as easy as this one liner. It converts the Python generator into tf.data.Dataset for a faster data loading, prefetching, caching and everything provided by tf.data.

image_sz_list = [(28, 28), (32, 32), (64, 64)]

ds = Dataset(data_path, image_size=image_sz_list)
ds.update_component('get_filenames', load_files)
ds.update_component('get_label', get_label)

dl = ds.get_tf_dataset()

for e in dl.take(1):
    print(e[0].shape)

for e in dl.take(1):
    print(e[0].shape)

for e in dl.take(1):
    print(e[0].shape)
Output get_filenames updated with get_label updated with (28, 28, 3) (32, 32, 3) (64, 64, 3)

Trainer

The Trainer class inherits from tf.keras.Model, it contains everything that is required for training. It exposes trainer.cyclic_fit method which trains the model using Cyclic Learning rate discovered by Leslie Smith.

from chitra.trainer import Trainer, create_cnn
from chitra.datagenerator import Dataset


ds = Dataset(cat_dog_path, image_size=(224, 224))
model = create_cnn('mobilenetv2', num_classes=2, name='Cat_Dog_Model')
trainer = Trainer(ds, model)
# trainer.summary()
trainer.compile2(batch_size=8,
    optimizer=tf.keras.optimizers.SGD(1e-3, momentum=0.9, nesterov=True),
    lr_range=(1e-6, 1e-3),
    loss='binary_crossentropy',
    metrics=['binary_accuracy'])

trainer.cyclic_fit(epochs=5,
    batch_size=8,
    lr_range=(0.00001, 0.0001),
)
Training Loop... cyclic learning rate already set! Epoch 1/5 1/1 [==============================] - 0s 14ms/step - loss: 6.4702 - binary_accuracy: 0.2500 Epoch 2/5 Returning the last set size which is: (224, 224) 1/1 [==============================] - 0s 965us/step - loss: 5.9033 - binary_accuracy: 0.5000 Epoch 3/5 Returning the last set size which is: (224, 224) 1/1 [==============================] - 0s 977us/step - loss: 5.9233 - binary_accuracy: 0.5000 Epoch 4/5 Returning the last set size which is: (224, 224) 1/1 [==============================] - 0s 979us/step - loss: 2.1408 - binary_accuracy: 0.7500 Epoch 5/5 Returning the last set size which is: (224, 224) 1/1 [==============================] - 0s 982us/step - loss: 1.9062 - binary_accuracy: 0.8750

✨ Model Interpretability

It is important to understand what is going inside the model. Techniques like GradCam and Saliency Maps can visualize what the Network is learning. trainer module has InterpretModel class which creates GradCam and GradCam++ visualization with almost no additional code.

from chitra.trainer import InterpretModel

trainer = Trainer(ds, create_cnn('mobilenetv2', num_classes=1000, keras_applications=False))
model_interpret = InterpretModel(True, trainer)

image = ds[1][0].numpy().astype('uint8')
image = Image.fromarray(image)
model_interpret(image)
print(IMAGENET_LABELS[285])
Returning the last set size which is: (224, 224)
index: 282

🎨 Data Visualization

Image annotation

Bounding Box creation is based on top of imgaug library.

from chitra.image import Chitra
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

bbox = [70, 25, 190, 210]
label = 'Dog'

image = Chitra(image_path, bboxes=bbox, labels=label)
plt.imshow(image.draw_boxes())

See Play with Images for detailed example!

πŸš€ Model Serving (Framework Agnostic)

Chitra can Create Rest API or Interactive UI app for Any Learning Model - ML, DL, Image Classification, NLP, Tensorflow, PyTorch or SKLearn. It provides chitra.serve.GradioApp for building Interactive UI app for ML/DL models and chitra.serve.API for building Rest API endpoint.

from chitra.serve import create_api
from chitra.trainer import create_cnn

model = create_cnn('mobilenetv2', num_classes=2)
create_api(model, run=True, api_type='image-classification')

πŸ›  Utility

Limit GPU memory or enable dynamic GPU memory growth for Tensorflow.

# limit the amount of GPU required for your training
limit_gpu(gpu_id=0, memory_limit=1024 * 2)
No GPU:0 found in your system!
