model.normalization module¶
Module Summary
InstanceNormalization 
Instance normalization layer (Lei Ba et al, 2016, Ulyanov et al., 2016). 
Conditional imports depending on whether the AMD version is installed or not
model.session module¶
Settings manager for Keras Backend

class
lib.model.session.
KSession
(name, model_path, model_kwargs=None, allow_growth=False, exclude_gpus=None)¶ Bases:
object
Handles the settings of backend sessions for inference models.
This class acts as a wrapper for various
keras.Model()
functions, ensuring that actions performed on a model are handled consistently and can be performed in parallel in separate threads.This is an early implementation of this class, and should be expanded out over time with relevant AMD, CPU and NVIDIA backend methods.
Notes
The documentation refers to
keras
. This is a pseudonym for eitherkeras
ortensorflow.keras
depending on the backend in use.Parameters:  name (str) – The name of the model that is to be loaded
 model_path (str) – The path to the keras model file
 model_kwargs (dict, optional) – Any kwargs that need to be passed to
keras.models.load_models()
. Default:None
 allow_growth (bool, optional) – Enable the Tensorflow GPU allow_growth configuration option. This option prevents
Tensorflow from allocating all of the GPU VRAM, but can lead to higher fragmentation and
slower performance. Default:
False
 exclude_gpus (list, optional) – A list of indices correlating to connected GPUs that Tensorflow should not use. Pass
None
to not exclude any GPUs. Default:None

append_softmax_activation
(layer_index=1)¶ Append a softmax activation layer to a model
Occasionally a softmax activation layer needs to be added to a model’s output. This is a convenience function to append this layer to the loaded model.
Parameters: layer_index (int, optional) – The layer index of the model to select the output from to use as an input to the softmax activation layer. Default: 1 (The final layer of the model)

define_model
(function)¶ Defines a model from the given function.
This method acts as a wrapper for
keras.models.Model()
.Parameters: function (function) – A function that defines a keras.Model
and returns it’sinputs
andoutputs
. The function that generates these results should be passed in, NOT the results themselves, as the function needs to be executed within the correct context.

load_model
()¶ Loads a model.
This method is a wrapper for
keras.models.load_model()
. Loads a model and its weights frommodel_path
defined during initialization of this class. Any additionalkwargs
to be passed tokeras.models.load_model()
should also be defined during initialization of the class.For Tensorflow backends, the make_predict_function method is called on the model to make it thread safe.

load_model_weights
()¶ Load model weights for a defined model inside the correct session.
This method is a wrapper for
keras.load_weights()
. Once a model has been defined indefine_model()
this method can be called to load its weights from themodel_path
defined during initialization of this class.For Tensorflow backends, the make_predict_function method is called on the model to make it thread safe.

predict
(feed, batch_size=None)¶ Get predictions from the model.
This method is a wrapper for
keras.predict()
function. For Tensorflow backends this is a straight call to the predict function. For PlaidML backends, this attempts to optimize the inference batch sizes to reduce the number of kernels that need to be compiled.Parameters: feed (numpy.ndarray or list) – The feed to be provided to the model as input. This should be a numpy.ndarray
for single inputs or a list ofnumpy.ndarray
objects for multiple inputs.
