Part 2: Conquering the CIFAR-10 Challenge with PyTorch

PyTorch and CIFAR-10 challenge: We defined code performance for the challenge on GPU. We created test data and trained the model. Now we need to measure the model’s performance. Let’s use F1 metric and test the model. Remember to use balanced data. Let’s create test data and use the model to predict classes. Then we can calculate the F1 score. Let’s use torch and MLP to define the architecture. We need to reshape the data to 32×32. Let’s train the model and evaluate its performance. Let’s save the losses and use them to improve the model. Finally, let’s test the model and calculate the F1 score.

In this article, we will discuss PyTorch and its application in the CIFAR-10 challenge. We will cover the initialization of the code, the performance metrics, and the GPU performance. Let’s dive in!

Initialization and Performance Metrics πŸš€

Before we start, let’s initialize our code and define the performance metrics. We will be working with the CIFAR-10 dataset, which contains 32×32 images. We will be using PyTorch to train our model on this dataset.

To begin, we need to create a data set. We will do this by creating a data type and initializing it. Then, we will print the data to see what it looks like.

data = torch.ones(1, 32, 32)
print(data)

GPU Performance πŸ’»

To improve the performance of our model, we will be using the GPU. We will link our code to the GPU and set it to use CUDA. We will also use the train data to train our model.

cuda = torch.cuda.is_available()
if cuda:
    model.cuda()
    train.cuda()

Performance Metrics and F1 Score πŸ’―

To evaluate the performance of our model, we will use the F1 score. The F1 score is a metric that combines precision and recall. It is a commonly used metric in machine learning.

def f1_score(y_true, y_pred):
    true_positives = torch.sum(torch.round(torch.clamp(y_true * y_pred, 0, 1)))
    predicted_positives = torch.sum(torch.round(torch.clamp(y_pred, 0, 1)))
    precision = true_positives / (predicted_positives + 1e-7)
    actual_positives = torch.sum(torch.round(torch.clamp(y_true, 0, 1)))
    recall = true_positives / (actual_positives + 1e-7)
    f1 = 2 * (precision * recall) / (precision + recall + 1e-7)
    return f1

Creating a Test Set πŸ“Š

To test our model, we need to create a test set. We will do this by creating a copy of the test data and then using it to evaluate our model.

test_data = train_data.copy()
test_data.apply(copy_test_data)
test_data.to_csv('test_data.csv')

Conclusion πŸŽ‰

In conclusion, we have discussed PyTorch and its application in the CIFAR-10 challenge. We have covered the initialization of the code, the performance metrics, and the GPU performance. We have also learned about the F1 score and how to create a test set. We hope this article has been helpful in understanding PyTorch and its applications.
