Adaround Parameters

class aimet_tensorflow.adaround.adaround_weight.AdaroundParameters(data_set, num_batches, default_num_iterations=10000, default_reg_param=0.01, default_beta_range=(20, 2), default_warm_start=0.2)[source]

Configuration parameters for Adaround

  • data_set (DatasetV2) – TF Data set

  • num_batches (int) – Number of batches

  • default_num_iterations (int) – Number of iterations to adaround each layer. Default 10000

  • default_reg_param (float) – Regularization parameter, trading off between rounding loss vs reconstruction loss. Default 0.01

  • default_beta_range (Tuple) – Start and stop beta parameter for annealing of rounding loss (start_beta, end_beta). Default (20, 2)

  • default_warm_start (float) – warm up period, during which rounding loss has zero effect. Default 20% (0.2)

Enum Definition

Quant Scheme Enum

class aimet_common.defs.QuantScheme(value)[source]

Enumeration of Quant schemes

post_training_percentile = 6

For a Tensor, adjusted minimum and maximum values are selected based on the percentile value passed. The Quantization encodings are calculated using the adjusted minimum and maximum value.

post_training_tf = 1

For a Tensor, the absolute minimum and maximum value of the Tensor are used to compute the Quantization encodings.

post_training_tf_enhanced = 2

For a Tensor, searches and selects the optimal minimum and maximum value that minimizes the Quantization Noise. The Quantization encodings are calculated using the selected minimum and maximum value.

training_range_learning_with_tf_enhanced_init = 4

For a Tensor, the encoding values are initialized with the post_training_tf_enhanced scheme. Then, the encodings are learned during training.

training_range_learning_with_tf_init = 3

For a Tensor, the encoding values are initialized with the post_training_tf scheme. Then, the encodings are learned during training.

Evaluation function

def dummy_forward_pass(model: tf.keras.Model, _):
    This is intended to be the user-defined model evaluation function.
    AIMET requires the above signature. So if the user's eval function does not
    match this signature, please create a simple wrapper.
    :param model: Model to be evaluated
    :param _: These argument(s) are passed to the forward_pass_callback as-is. Up to
            the user to determine the type of this parameter. E.g. could be simply an integer representing the number
            of data samples to use. Or could be a tuple of parameters or an object representing something more complex.
            If set to None, forward_pass_callback will be invoked with no parameters.
    :return: single float number (accuracy) representing model's performance
    input_data = np.random.rand(32, 16, 16, 3)
    return model(input_data)

After applying AdaRound to the model, the AdaRounded model and associated encodings are returned
