Iterators

Data iteration tools for loading into neural networks.

What is an iterator?

A dataset iterator allows for easy loading of data into neural networks and help organize batching, conversion, and masking. The iterators included in Eclipse Deeplearning4j help with either user-provided data, or automatic loading of common benchmarking datasets such as MNIST and IRIS.

Usage

For most use cases, initializing an iterator and passing a reference to a MultiLayerNetwork or ComputationGraph fit() method is all you need to begin a task for training:

MultiLayerNetwork model = new MultiLayerNetwork(conf);
model.init();
// pass an MNIST data iterator that automatically fetches data
DataSetIterator mnistTrain = new MnistDataSetIterator(batchSize, true, rngSeed);
net.fit(mnistTrain);

Many other methods also accept iterators for tasks such as evaluation:

// passing directly to the neural network
DataSetIterator mnistTest = new MnistDataSetIterator(batchSize, false, rngSeed);
net.eval(mnistTest);
// using an evaluation class
Evaluation eval = new Evaluation(10); //create an evaluation object with 10 possible classes
while(mnistTest.hasNext()){
DataSet next = mnistTest.next();
INDArray output = model.output(next.getFeatureMatrix()); //get the networks prediction
eval.eval(next.getLabels(), output); //check the prediction against the true class
}

asyncSupported

public boolean asyncSupported()

  • throws IllegalStateException if the {- code next} method has not yet been called, or the {- code remove} method has already been called after the last call to the {- code next} method

[source]

Builds an iterator that terminates once the number of minibatches returned with .next() is equal to a specified number. Note that a call to .next(num) is counted as a call to return a minibatch regardless of the value of num This essentially restricts the data to this specified number of minibatches.

EarlyTerminationDataSetIterator

public EarlyTerminationDataSetIterator(DataSetIterator underlyingIterator, int terminationPoint)

Constructor takes the iterator to wrap and the number of minibatches after which the call to hasNext() will return false

  • param underlyingIterator, iterator to wrap

  • param terminationPoint, minibatches after which hasNext() will return false

ReconstructionDataSetIterator

[source]

Wraps a data set iterator setting the first (feature matrix) as the labels.

next

public DataSet next(int num)

Like the standard next method but allows a customizable number of examples returned

  • param num the number of examples

  • return the next data applyTransformToDestination

inputColumns

public int inputColumns()

Input columns for the dataset

  • return

totalOutcomes

public int totalOutcomes()

The number of labels for the dataset

  • return

reset

public void reset()

Resets the iterator back to the beginning

batch

public int batch()

Batch size

  • return

hasNext

public boolean hasNext()

Returns {- code true} if the iteration has more elements. (In other words, returns {- code true} if {- link #next} would return an element rather than throwing an exception.)

  • return {- code true} if the iteration has more elements

next

public DataSet next()

Returns the next element in the iteration.

  • return the next element in the iteration

remove

public void remove()

Removes from the underlying collection the last element returned by this iterator (optional operation). This method can be called only once per call to {- link #next}. The behavior of an iterator is unspecified if the underlying collection is modified while the iteration is in progress in any way other than by calling this method.

  • throws UnsupportedOperationException if the {- code remove} operation is not supported by this iterator

  • throws IllegalStateException if the {- code next} method has not yet been called, or the {- code remove} method has already been called after the last call to the {- code next} method

DataSetIteratorSplitter

[source]

This iterator virtually splits given MultiDataSetIterator into Train and Test parts. I.e. you have 100000 examples. Your batch size is 32. That means you have 3125 total batches. With split ratio of 0.7 that will give you 2187 training batches, and 938 test batches.

PLEASE NOTE: You can’t use Test iterator twice in a row. Train iterator should be used before Test iterator use. PLEASE NOTE: You can’t use this iterator, if underlying iterator uses randomization/shuffle between epochs.

DataSetIteratorSplitter

public DataSetIteratorSplitter(@NonNull DataSetIterator baseIterator, long totalBatches, double ratio)

The only constructor

  • param baseIterator - iterator to be wrapped and split

  • param totalBatches - total batches in baseIterator

  • param ratio - train/test split ratio

getTrainIterator

public DataSetIterator getTrainIterator()

This method returns train iterator instance

  • return

next

public DataSet next(int i)

This method returns test iterator instance

  • return

JointMultiDataSetIterator

[source]

This dataset iterator combines multiple DataSetIterators into 1 MultiDataSetIterator. Values from each iterator are joined on a per-example basis - i.e., the values from each DataSet are combined as different feature arrays for a multi-input neural network. Labels can come from either one of the underlying DataSetIteartors only (if ‘outcome’ is >= 0) or from all iterators (if outcome is < 0)

JointMultiDataSetIterator

public JointMultiDataSetIterator(DataSetIterator... iterators)
  • param iterators Underlying iterators to wrap

next

public MultiDataSet next(int num)
  • param outcome Index to get the label from. If < 0, labels from all iterators will be used to create the final MultiDataSet

  • param iterators Underlying iterators to wrap

setPreProcessor

public void setPreProcessor(MultiDataSetPreProcessor preProcessor)

Set the preprocessor to be applied to each MultiDataSet, before each MultiDataSet is returned.

  • param preProcessor MultiDataSetPreProcessor. May be null.

getPreProcessor

public MultiDataSetPreProcessor getPreProcessor()

Get the {- link MultiDataSetPreProcessor}, if one has previously been set. Returns null if no preprocessor has been set

  • return Preprocessor

resetSupported

public boolean resetSupported()

Is resetting supported by this DataSetIterator? Many DataSetIterators do support resetting, but some don’t

  • return true if reset method is supported; false otherwise

asyncSupported

public boolean asyncSupported()

Does this MultiDataSetIterator support asynchronous prefetching of multiple MultiDataSet objects? Most MultiDataSetIterators do, but in some cases it may not make sense to wrap this iterator in an iterator that does asynchronous prefetching. For example, it would not make sense to use asynchronous prefetching for the following types of iterators: (a) Iterators that store their full contents in memory already (b) Iterators that re-use features/labels arrays (as future next() calls will overwrite past contents) (c) Iterators that already implement some level of asynchronous prefetching (d) Iterators that may return different data depending on when the next() method is called

  • return true if asynchronous prefetching from this iterator is OK; false if asynchronous prefetching should not be used with this iterator

reset

public void reset()

Resets the iterator back to the beginning

hasNext

public boolean hasNext()

Returns {- code true} if the iteration has more elements. (In other words, returns {- code true} if {- link #next} would return an element rather than throwing an exception.)

  • return {- code true} if the iteration has more elements

next

public MultiDataSet next()

Returns the next element in the iteration.

  • return the next element in the iteration

remove

public void remove()

PLEASE NOTE: This method is NOT implemented

  • throws UnsupportedOperationException if the {- code remove} operation is not supported by this iterator

  • throws IllegalStateException if the {- code next} method has not yet been called, or the {- code remove} method has already been called after the last call to the {- code next} method

  • implSpec The default implementation throws an instance of {- link UnsupportedOperationException} and performs no other action.
