GSoC: Phase 2 Evaluation
In continuation to the Phase 1 updates, this is a short update on my progress till the Phase 2 Evaluation in GSoC 2020. A major concern regarding the TMVA PyTorch Interface in the last 2 months has been the
train method. I’ve finally been able to solve the issues and bugs and have incorporated a simplified version of
train method successfully. Below are the goals set before the 2nd evaluation according to my proposal, of which I was able to complete the following:
- Add Initial Structure for
Implement the basic outline of
- Implement the
- Implement train methods. (Partially Completed)
- Implement simple basic structure for training
- Add ability to load code from users
- Convert numpy based dataloaders in TMVA to PyTorch dataloaders
- Use default optimizer (optional optimizer SGD)
- Add savebest model
- Add scheduler
- Implement Validation in
- Implement the Tests
testPyTorchClassification.C(WIP (Training works))
train method in the
MethodPyTorch is almost complete. I need to add features for Keras like callbacks, which after discussing with my mentors, we’ve decided to implement in the next month. I’d like to thank Lorenzo for helping me out when I was stuck with issues related to
user code loading in the TMVA Interface.
In the final month, I’ll be working on the prediction side of the interface, involving implementation of the
GetMvaValues method for Classification,
GetRegressionValues method for Regression and
GetMulticlassValues method for MultiClass multi-variate analysis.
This will also involve the utilization of user-defined
predict function in PyTorch.
Later, I’ll be implementing all the remaining tests and tutorials.
I’m feeling confident about my progress and I shall be able to wrap up the complete interface in the next couple of weeks!💪
