Self-Tuning Networks

This repository contains the code used for the paper Self-Tuning Networks: Bilevel Optimization of Hyperparameters using Structured Best-Response Functions (ICLR 2019).

Requirements

  • Python 3.6.x
  • Pytorch 0.4.1

Setup

The following is an example of how to create an environment with the appropriate versions of the dependencies:

conda create -n stn-env python=3.6
source activate stn-env
conda install pytorch=0.4.1 cuda80 -c pytorch
conda install torchvision -c pytorch
pip install -r requirements.txt

Experiments

CNN Experiments

The CNN code in this reposistory is built on the Cutout codebase. These commands should be run from inside the cnn folder.

To train a Self-Tuning CNN:

python hypertrain.py --tune_all --tune_scales --entropy_weight=1e-3 --save

To train a baseline CNN:

python train_basic.py

LSTM Experiments

The LSTM code in this repository is built on the AWD-LSTM codebase. The commands for the LSTM experiments should be run from inside the lstm folder.

First, download the PTB dataset:

./getdata.sh

Schedule Experiments

The commands in this section can be used to obtain results for Table 1 in the paper.

  • Using a fixed value for output dropout discovered by grid search

    python train_basic.py --dropouto=0.68 --prefix=dropouto
    
  • Gaussian-perturbed output dropout rate, with std=0.05

    python train_basic.py --dropouto=0.68 --prefix=dropouto_gauss --perturb_type=gaussian --perturb_std=0.05 --perturb_dropouto
    
  • Sinusoid-perturbed output dropout rate, with amplitude=0.1 and period=1200 minibatches

    python train_basic.py --dropouto=0.68 --prefix=dropouto_sin --perturb_type=sinusoid --amplitude=0.1 --sinusoid_period=1200 --perturb_dropouto
    
  • STN-tuned output dropout

    python train.py --dropouto=0.05 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_stn
    
  • Train from scratch following the STN schedule for output dropout (replace the path in --load_schedule with the one generated by the STN command above):

    python train_basic.py --load_schedule=logs/dropouto_stn/2019-06-15/epoch.csv
    
  • Train from scratch with the final output dropout value from STN training:

    python train_basic.py --dropouto=0.78 --prefix=dropouto_final
    
Schedules with Different Hyperparameter Initializations
  • The following commands find STN schedules starting with different initial dropout values (in {0.05, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, 0.9})

    python train.py --dropouto=0.05 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_schedule_init05
    python train.py --dropouto=0.3 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_schedule_init30
    python train.py --dropouto=0.5 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_schedule_init50
    python train.py --dropouto=0.7 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_schedule_init70
    python train.py --dropouto=0.9 --tune_dropouto --save_dir=dropouto_schedule_init90
    
  • To plot the schedules, first modify the variables log_dir_init05, log_dir_init30, log_dir_init50, log_dir_init70, log_dir_init90 in save_dropouto_schedule_plot.py to point to the appropriate directories created by the commands above, and then run:

    python save_dropouto_schedule_plot.py
    

Tuning Multiple LSTM Hyperparameters

Run the following command to tune the input/hidden/output/embedding dropout, weight DropConnect, and the coefficients of activation regularization (alpha) and temporal activation regularization (beta):

python train.py --seed=3 --tune_all --save_dir=st-lstm
