taylorized-training

This repository contains code for training Taylorized neural networks from the paper

Taylorized Training: Towards Better Approximation of Neural Network Training at Finite Width by Yu Bai, Ben Krause, Huan Wang, Caiming Xiong, and Richard Socher, 2020.

Introduction

Taylorized training is to train the k-th order Taylor expansion of a neural network around its (random) initialization.

An example use case of Taylorized training is as an empirical tool towards understanding the training dynamics of neural networks at finite width, in a way that extends the recently proposed theory of linearized training.

Prerequisites

Requires Python >=3.6 and the following prerequisites.

# install tensorflow and tensorboard
pip install tensorflow-gpu, tensorflow_datasets, tensorboardX

# install jax
# note: please check newest version number for jaxlib
PYTHON_VERSION=cp36  # alternatives: cp36, cp37, cp38
CUDA_VERSION=cuda100  # alternatives: cuda92, cuda100, cuda101, cuda102
PLATFORM=linux_x86_64  # alternatives: linux_x86_64
BASE_URL='https://storage.googleapis.com/jax-releases'
pip install --upgrade $BASE_URL/$CUDA_VERSION/jaxlib-0.1.42-$PYTHON_VERSION-none-$PLATFORM.whl
pip install --upgrade jax  # install jax

# install neural_tangents
pip install neural_tangents

Our code is written in Jax and uses the Taylorization functionality from Neural Tangents. We currently require Tensorflow in addition for some (very light) data processing routines.

Training neural networks and their Taylorizations

  1. Train a 4-layer CNN with 128 channels per layer, saving the model parameters and test logits.
python taylorized_train.py \
    --epochs 200 \
    --init_seed 100 \
    --model cnn --gap --n_channels 128 --n_layers 4 \
    --loss logistic \
    --parameterization standard \
    --optimizer momentum --lr 0.1 --momentum 0.0 --weight_decay 0.0 \
    --lr_decay --decay_epoch 100 --decay_epoch_2 150 --decay_factor 0.1 \
    --grad_norm_thresh 5 \
    --batch_size_train 256 \
    --batch_size_test 256 \
    --logdir runs/CNNTHIN-lr-0.1-clip-5-bs-256 \
    --save_steps 200 \
    --early_save_steps 25 \
    --early_save_till_step 200 \
    --save_path saved_models/CNNTHIN-lr-0.1-clip-5-bs-256
  1. Train {linearized, quadratic, cubic, quartic} Taylorized versions of the 4-layer CNN from the same initialization (with parallelization over CUDA devices.)

    Note: Taylorized training uses the exact same random seeds as full training (for SGD and data augmentation noise.)
