- Implementing Autoencoders in Keras: Tutorial
keras-tutorialsWelcome to Part 4 of Applied Deep Learning series. Part 1 was a hands-on introduction to Artificial Neural Networks, covering both the theory and application with a lot of code examples and visualization. In Part 2 we applied deep learning to real-world datasets, covering the 3 most commonly encountered problems as case studies: binary classification, multiclass classification and regression. Part 3 explored a specific deep learning architecture: Autoencoders. Now we will cover the most popular deep learning model: Convolutional Neural Networks. The code for this article is available here as a Jupyter notebook, feel free to download and try it out yourself. It is arguably the most popular deep learning architecture. The recent surge of interest in deep learning is due to the immense popularity and effectiveness of convnets. In just three years, researchers progressed from 8 layer AlexNet to layer ResNet. CNN is now the go-to model on every image related problem. In terms of accuracy they blow competition out of the water. It is also successfully applied to recommender systems, natural language processing and more. The main advantage of CNN compared to its predecessors is that it automatically detects the important features without any human supervision. For example, given many pictures of cats and dogs it learns distinctive features for each class by itself. CNN is also computationally efficient. It uses special convolution and pooling operations and performs parameter sharing. This enables CNN models to run on any device, making them universally attractive. All in all this sounds like pure magic. We are dealing with a very powerful and efficient model which performs automatic feature extraction to achieve superhuman accuracy yes CNN models now do image classification better than humans. Hopefully this article will help us uncover the secrets of this remarkable technique. All CNN models follow a similar architecture, as shown in the figure below. If we are performing multiclass classification the output is softmax. We will now dive into each component. The main building block of CNN is the convolutional layer. Convolution is a mathematical operation to merge two sets of information. In our case the convolution is applied on the input data using a convolution filter to produce a feature map. On the left side is the input to the convolution layer, for example the input image. On the right is the convolution filteralso called the kernelwe will use these terms interchangeably. This is called a 3x3 convolution due to the shape of the filter. We perform the convolution operation by sliding this filter over the input. At every location, we do element-wise matrix multiplication and sum the result. This sum goes into the feature map. The green area where the convolution operation takes place is called the receptive field. Due to the size of the filter the receptive field is also 3x3. We then slide the filter to the right and perform the same operation, adding that result to the feature map as well. We continue like this and aggregate the convolution results in the feature map.

Implementing Autoencoders in Keras: Tutorial
Autoencoders AE are a family of neural networks for which the input is the same as the output they implement a identity function. They work by compressing the input into a latent-space representation, and then reconstructing the output from this representation. A really popular use for autoencoders is to apply them to images. The trick is to replace fully connected layers by convolutional layers. This helps the network extract visual features from the images, and therefore obtain a much more accurate latent space representation. The reconstruction process uses upsampling and convolutions. Convolutional autoencoders can be useful for reconstruction. They can, for example, learn to remove noise from pictureor reconstruct missing parts. With this process, the networks learns to fill in the gaps in the image. We can manually create the dataset, which is extremely convenient. Now that our autoencoder is trained, we can use it to remove the crosshairs on pictures of eyes we have never seen! The encoder part of the network will be a typical convolutional pyramid. Each convolutional layer will be followed by a max-pooling layer to reduce the dimensions of the layers. The decoder needs to convert from a narrow representation to a wide reconstructed image. They work almost exactly the same as convolutional layers, but in reverse. A stride in the input layer results in a larger stride in the transposed convolution layer. For example, if you have a 3x3 kernel, a 3x3 patch in the input layer will be reduced to one unit in a convolutional layer. Comparatively, one unit in the input layer will be expanded to a 3x3 path in a transposed convolution layer. However, transposed convolution layers can lead to artifacts in the final images, such as checkerboard patterns. This is due to overlap in the kernels which can be avoided by setting the stride and kernel size equal. In this Distill article from Augustus Odena, et althe authors show that these checkerboard artifacts can be avoided by resizing the layers using nearest neighbor or bilinear interpolation upsampling followed by a convolutional layer. In TensorFlow, this is easily done with tf.
