KMaxPool

Description

Info

Parenr class: Module

Derived classes: -

K-Max Pooling is a pooling operation, which is a generalization of max-pooling by the time parameter used in the Max-TDNN model, which differs from the local max-pooling used in convolutional networks for object recognition (LeCun et al., 1998).

K-Max Pooling selects a subsequence out of the k maximum values of the sequence. This module implements a special case when the relative positions of the selected elements are not saved: the sorted values are returned to the output.

Examples

Necessary imports.

import numpy as np
from PuzzleLib.Backend import gpuarray
from PuzzleLib.Modules import KMaxPool

Info

gpuarray is required to properly place the tensor in the GPU

np.random.seed(123)
data = gpuarray.to_gpu(np.random.randint(0, 9, (1, 1, 10)).astype(np.float32))
print(data)
[[[2. 2. 6. 1. 3. 6. 1. 0. 1. 0.]]]
topk, axis = 2, 2
kmaxpool = KMaxPool(topk=3, axis=2)
print(kmaxpool(data))
[[[3. 6. 6.]]]
