MT-net

Code accompanying the paper Gradient-Based Meta-Learning with Learned Layerwise Metric and Subspace (Yoonho Lee and Seungjin Choi, ICML 2018). It includes code for running the experiments in the paper (few-shot sine wave regression, Omniglot and miniImagenet few-shot classification).

Abstract

Gradient-based meta-learning methods leverage gradient descent to learn the commonalities among various tasks. While previous such methods have been successful in meta-learning tasks, they resort to simple gradient descent during meta-testing. Our primary contribution is the MT-net, which enables the meta-learner to learn on each layer's activation space a subspace that the task-specific learner performs gradient descent on. Additionally, a task-specific learner of an {\em MT-net} performs gradient descent with respect to a meta-learned distance metric, which warps the activation space to be more sensitive to task identity. We demonstrate that the dimension of this learned subspace reflects the complexity of the task-specific learner's adaptation task, and also that our model is less sensitive to the choice of initial learning rates than previous gradient-based meta-learning methods. Our method achieves state-of-the-art or comparable performance on few-shot classification and regression tasks.

Data

For the Omniglot and MiniImagenet data, see the usage instructions in data/omniglot_resized/resize_images.py and data/miniImagenet/proc_images.py respectively.

Usage

To run the code, see the usage instructions at the top of main.py.

For MT-nets, set use_T, use_M, share_M to True.

For T-nets, set use_T to True and use_M to False.
