Regularizing Meta-Learning via Gradient Dropout

[Paper]

Pytorch implementation for our DropGrad approach. With the proposed regularization method, we can:

  1. alleviate the overfitting problem in the exisiting gradient-based meta-learning models
  2. improve the performance under cross-domain few-shot classification setting

Usage

Prerequisites

  • Python >= 3.5
  • Pytorch >= 1.3 and torchvision (https://pytorch.org/)
  • You can use the requirements.txt file we provide to setup the environment via Anaconda.
conda create --name py36 python=3.6
conda install pytorch torchvision -c pytorch
pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Install

Clone this repository:

git clone https://github.com/hytseng0509/DropGrad.git
cd DropGrad

Datasets

Download 2 datasets seperately with the following commands.

  • Set DATASET_NAME to: cub, miniImagenet.
cd filelists
python3 process.py DATASET_NAME
cd ..
  • Refer to the instruction here for constructing your own dataset.

Training

Train gradient-based model on the mini-ImageNet dataset.

  • DPMETHOD : dropout method none, binary, gaussian.
  • DPRATE: dropout rate, we suggest 0.1.
python3 train.py --dropout_method DPMETHOD --dropout_rate DPRATE --name MAML_DPMETHOD_DPRATE --train_aug

Evaluation

Test the model on the mini-ImageNet or CUB (cross-domain) dataset

  • Specify --dataset to miniImagenet or cub
python3 test.py --name MAML_DPMETHOD_DPRATE --dataset TESTSET

Note

  • This code is built upon the implementation from CloserLookFewShot.
  • The dataset, model, and code are for non-commercial research purposes only.
  • You can change the number of shot (i.e. 1/5 shots) using the argument --n_shot.
  • Please refer to output/checkpoints/download_models.py for the example model file trained with the DropGrad approach.
