How Important is Importance Sampling for Deep Budgeted training?

Official Pytorch implementation of our BMVC 2021 paper How Important is Importance Sampling for Deep Budgeted training?

IS4BT

Experiments

Arguments

The following command provides details on each of the arguments of the code:

$ python train.py --h

The most relevant are the following:

  • --budget: computational budget of the experiment (fraction of the iterations allowed per epoch)
  • --method: approach to importance sampling (SGD, p-SGD, c-SGD, unif-SGD, or selective_backpropagation)
  • --augmentation: data augmentation technique (standard, ricap, mixup, or randaugment)

Datasets

The file example_scripts.sh contain examples of how to run the experiments in each of the datasets and with different data augmentation techniques. All the datasets are automatically downloaded, except mini-ImageNet that has to be manually created and placed in the folder ./data (follow this link to download and create mini-ImageNet).

Requirements

These are the most relevant dependencies to replicate our experiments:

  • torch == 1.0.0
  • numpy == 1.19.1
  • torchvision == 0.2.1

Acknowledgements

We would like to thank [1] SelectiveBackprop for the implementation of their approach to importance sampling "Selective Backpropagation" and [2] RICAP, [3] mixup, and [4] RandAugment for the implementation of the data augmentation techniques used in our code.
