Neural Architecture Search of Semantic Segmentation Models (in PyTorch)
This repository provides official models from the paper
Fast Neural Architecture Search of Compact Semantic Segmentation Models via Auxiliary Cells, available here
Fast Neural Architecture Search of Compact Semantic Segmentation Models via Auxiliary Cells Vladimir Nekrasov, Hao Chen, Chunhua Shen, Ian Reid To appear in CVPR, 2019
For flawless reproduction of our results, the Ubuntu OS is recommended. The models have been tested using Python 3.6.
pip3 Cython cv2 jupyter-notebook matplotlib numpy Pillow torch>=1.0 torchvision
For the ease of reproduction, we have embedded all our examples inside Jupyter notebooks.
Please refer to results on PASCAL VOC
Please refer to results on NYUD-v2
If you would like to search for architectures yourself, please follow the instructions below:
You would need to have PASCAL VOC segmentation dataset expanded with annotations from BSD.
After that, run in your terminal:
mkdir data/datasets ln -s /path_to_voc/VOCdevkit data/datasets/
We rely on a Cython-based script for calculating mean IoU. In order to build the corresponding files, run the following:
cd src python helpers/setup.py build_ext --build-lib=./helpers/
After that, you can execute
./examples/search/search.sh that will start the search process.
[!] Please note that all the hyperparameters were tuned for running the search process on 2 GPUs, each with at least 11GB of memory. In case when your setup differs, you would need to tune the hyperparameters accordingly.
Checking the results
We output the log-file with all information on the search process. You can easily see top-performing architectures using the following command:
python src/helpers/num_uq.py path_to_genotypes.out
