Properties of Network Design in Neural Architecture

Engr. Dr. Muhammad Nawaz Iqbal

Automating ANN design using neural architecture search makes use of machine learning. Networks that compare favorably to hand-designed systems have been created using a variety of NAS design techniques. A candidate model is put out, tested against a dataset, and the findings are used as feedback to instruct the NAS network, according to the fundamental search algorithm. Systems like AutoML and AutoKeras are readily available. It can take a while to directly learn a model architecture from a huge dataset. By moving a building block created for a small dataset to a larger dataset, NASNet was able to solve this problem. When convoluting an input feature map, the design was restricted to using two types of convolutional cells: regular cells, which return maps of the same extent (height and width), and reduction cells, in which the returned feature map height and width is reduced by a factor of two. The reduction cell’s initial operation employs a stride of two on the cell’s inputs (to reduce the height and width).

In general, an evolutionary algorithm for neural architecture search does the following. The first step is initializing a pool of several candidate architectures and their validation ratings (fitness). The architectures in the candidate pool are altered at each stage (eg: 3×3 convolution instead of a 5×5 convolution). After a few epochs of training from scratch, the new designs are validated to determine their scores. Then, the better, more recent architectures are substituted for the candidate pool’s lowest scoring architectures. It is asserted that Neural Architect is a multi-objective, resource-aware RL-based neural architecture with network embedding and performance prediction. An existing network is encoded using network embedding to create a trainable embedding vector. A controller network generates transformations of the target network based on the embedding. A multi-objective reward function takes into account training time, computational capacity, and network accuracy. Several performance simulations network that have been pre-trained or co-trained with the controller network forecast the reward. Policy gradient is used to train the controller network. Following a modification, both an accuracy network and a training time network evaluate the new candidate network. A reward engine combines the outcomes and sends the output back to the controller network. Because its expensive training and assessment phases consume a lot of processing resources, neural architecture search frequently does. This further results in the evaluation of these methodologies requiring a significant carbon impact. To get over this restriction, neural architecture benchmarks were developed, from which it is now possible to quickly query or forecast the ultimate performance of neural networks. A dataset with a fixed train-test split, a search space, and a predefined training pipeline is known as a neural architecture benchmark (hyperparameters).

Using a finite number of neurons and conventional linear connections, a certain recurrent architecture with rational-valued weights (as opposed to full precision real number-valued weights) offers the capability of a universal Turing computer. Additionally, using illogical weight values creates a machine with super-Turing power.

Understanding artificial neural networks’ features is necessary for using them. The application and the data representation will determine the model to use. Models that are too complex hinder learning. Learning algorithm: Different learning algorithms have a variety of trade-offs. With the right hyperparameters, almost every algorithm will perform well when trained on a specific data set. But choosing and fine-tuning an algorithm for training on new data needs a lot of trial and error. Robustness: The resulting ANN can become resilient if the model, cost function, and learning method are well chosen.
