Dropout

Description

Define the dropout layer according to its parameters. To be used for the TimeDistributed layer. Type : polymorphic.

 

Input parameters

 

Β parameters : layer parameters.

rateΒ :Β float between 0 and 1, fraction of the input units to drop.
Default value β€œ0”.
Β training?Β :Β boolean, whether the layer is in training mode (can store data for backward).
Default value β€œTrue”.
Β lda_coeff :Β float, defines the coefficient by which the loss derivative will be multiplied before being sent to the previous layer (since during the backward run we go backwards).
Default value β€œ1”.

 

Output parameters

 

Β Dropout out : layer dropout architecture.

Example

All these exemples are snippets PNG, you can drop these Snippet onto the block diagram and get the depicted code added to your VI (Do not forget to install HAIBAL library to run it).

Dropout layer inside Timedistributed layer

1 – Generate a set of data

We generate an array of data of type single and shape [batch_size = 10, time = 6, input_dim = 5].

2 – Define graph

First, we define the first layer of the graph which is an Input layer (explicit input layer method). This layer is setup as an input array shaped [time = 6, input_dim = 5].
Then, we add to the graph the TimeDistributed layer which we setup with a Dropout layer using the define method.

3 – Run graph

We call the forward method and retrieve the result with the β€œPrediction 3D” method.
This method returns two variables, the first one is the layer information (cluster composed of the layer name, the graph index and the shape of the output layer) and the second one is the prediction with a shape of [batch_size, time, units].
