In recent years, deep neural networks have been used to solve complex machine-learning problems. They have achieved significant state-of-the-art results in many areas.
The goal of the course is to introduce deep neural networks, from the basics to the latest advances. The course will focus both on theory as well as on practical aspects (students will implement and train several deep neural networks capable of achieving state-of-the-art results, for example in image classification, object detection, lemmatization, speech recognition or 3D object recognition). No previous knowledge of artificial neural networks is required, but basic understanding of machine learning is advisable.

To pass the practicals, you need to obtain at least 80 points, excluding the bonus points. Note that all surplus points (both bonus and non-bonus) will be transfered to the exam. In total, assignments for at least 120 points (not including the bonus points) will be available, and if you solve all the assignments (any non-zero amount of points counts as solved), you automatically pass the exam with grade 1.
The tasks are evaluated automatically using the ReCodEx Code Examiner.
The evaluation is performed using Python 3.9, TensorFlow 2.8.0, TensorFlow Addons 0.16, TensorFlow Probability 0.12.1, TensorFlow Hub 0.11.0, and OpenAI Gym 0.20.0. You should install the exact version of these packages yourselves.
Solving assignments in teams (of size at most 3) is encouraged, but everyone has to participate (it is forbidden not to work on an assignment and then submit a solution created by other team members). All members of the team must submit in ReCodEx individually, but can have exactly the same sources/models/results. Each such solution must explicitly list all members of the team to allow plagiarism detection using this template.
Cheating is strictly prohibited and any student found cheating will be punished. The punishment can involve failing the whole course, or, in grave cases, being expelled from the faculty. While discussing assignments with any classmate is fine, each team must complete the assignments themselves, without using code they did not write (unless explicitly allowed). Of course, inside a team you are expected to share code and submit identical solutions.

The goal of this exercise is to familiarize with Python, NumPy and ReCodEx submission system. Start with the numpy_entropy.py.
Load a file specified in args.data_path
, whose lines consist of data points of our
dataset, and load a file specified in args.model_path
, which describes a model probability distribution,
with each line being a tab-separated pair of (data point, probability).
Then compute the following quantities using NumPy, and print them each on
a separate line rounded on two decimal places (or inf
for positive infinity,
which happens when an element of data distribution has zero probability
under the model distribution):
Use natural logarithms to compute the entropies and the divergence.
Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

The goal of this exercise is to familiarize with TensorFlow tf.Tensor
s,
shapes and basic tensor manipulation methods. Start with the
pca_first.py
(and you will also need the mnist.py
module).
In this assignment, you will compute the covariance matrix of several examples from the MNIST dataset, compute the first principal component and quantify the explained variance of it.
It is fine if you are not familiar with terms like covariance matrix or principal component – the template contains a detailed description of what you have to do.
Finally, it is a good idea to read the
TensorFlow guide about tf.Tensor
s.
Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

In this exercise you will learn how to compute gradients using the so-called automatic differentiation, which is implemented by an automated backpropagation algorithm in TensorFlow. You will then perform training by running manually implemented minibatch stochastic gradient descent.
Starting with the sgd_backpropagation.py template, you should:
tf.GradientTape
to automatically compute the gradient of the loss
with respect to all variables;Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

The goal in this exercise is to extend your solution to the sgd_backpropagation assignment by manually computing the gradient.
While in this assignment we compute the gradient manually, we will nearly always use the automatic differentiation. Therefore, the assignment is more of a mathematical exercise than a real-world application. Furthermore, we will compute the derivatives together on the Feb 28 practicals.
Start with the sgd_manual.py template, which is based on sgd_backpropagation.py one. Be aware that these templates generates each a different output file.
In order to check that you do not use automatic differentiation, ReCodEx checks
that you do not use tf.GradientTape
in your solution.
Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

Solve the CartPole-v1 environment from the Gym library, utilizing only provided supervised training data. The data is available in gym_cartpole_data.txt file, each line containing one observation (four space separated floats) and a corresponding action (the last space separated integer). Start with the gym_cartpole.py.
The solution to this task should be a model which passes evaluation on random
inputs. This evaluation can be performed by running the
gym_cartpole.py
with --evaluate
argument (optionally rendering if --render
option is
provided), or directly calling the evaluate_model
method. In order to pass,
you must achieve an average reward of at least 475 on 100 episodes. Your model
should have either one or two outputs (i.e., using either sigmoid or softmax
output function).
When designing the model, you should consider that the size of the training data is very small and the data is quite noisy.
When submitting to ReCodEx, do not forget to also submit the trained model.

You will learn how to implement three regularization methods in this assignment. Start with the mnist_regularization.py template and implement the following:
args.dropout
. Add a dropout layer after the
first Flatten
and also after all Dense
hidden layers (but not after the
output layer).args.l2
. Use
tf.keras.regularizers.L2
as a regularizer for all kernels (but not
biases) of all Dense
layers (including the last one).args.label_smoothing
. Instead
of SparseCategoricalCrossentropy
, you will need to use
CategoricalCrossentropy
which offers label_smoothing
argument.In ReCodEx, there will be six tests (two for each regularization methods) and you will get half a point for passing each one.

This assignment introduces first NLP task. Your goal is to implement a model which is given Czech lowercased text and tries to uppercase appropriate letters. To load the dataset, use uppercase_data.py module which loads (and if required also downloads) the data. While the training and the development sets are in correct case, the test set is lowercased.
This is an open-data task, where you submit only the uppercased test set together with the training script (which will not be executed, it will be only used to understand the approach you took, and to indicate teams). Explicitly, submit exactly one .txt file and at least one .py/ipynb file.
The task is also a competition. Everyone who submits
a solution which achieves at least 98.5% accuracy will get 4 basic points; the
5 bonus points will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your
solutions. The accuracy is computed per-character and can be evaluated
by running uppercase_data.py
with --evaluate
argument, or using its evaluate_file
method.
You may want to start with the uppercase.py template, which uses the uppercase_data.py to load the data, generate an alphabet of given size containing most frequent characters, and generate sliding window view on the data. The template also comments on possibilities of character representation.
Do not use RNNs, CNNs or Transformer in this task (if you have doubts, contact me).

To pass this assignment, you will learn to construct basic convolutional
neural network layers. Start with the
mnist_cnn.py
template and assume the requested architecture is described by the cnn
argument, which contains comma-separated specifications of the following layers:
C-filters-kernel_size-stride-padding
: Add a convolutional layer with ReLU
activation and specified number of filters, kernel size, stride and padding.
Example: C-10-3-1-same
CB-filters-kernel_size-stride-padding
: Same as
C-filters-kernel_size-stride-padding
, but use batch normalization.
In detail, start with a convolutional layer without bias and activation,
then add batch normalization layer, and finally ReLU activation.
Example: CB-10-3-1-same
M-pool_size-stride
: Add max pooling with specified size and stride, using
the default "valid"
padding.
Example: M-3-2
R-[layers]
: Add a residual connection. The layers
contain a specification
of at least one convolutional layer (but not a recursive residual connection R
).
The input to the R
layer should be processed sequentially by layers
, and the
produced output (after the ReLU nonlinearty of the last layer) should be added
to the input (of this R
layer).
Example: R-[C-16-3-1-same,C-16-3-1-same]
F
: Flatten inputs. Must appear exactly once in the architecture.H-hidden_layer_size
: Add a dense layer with ReLU activation and specified
size. Example: H-100
D-dropout_rate
: Apply dropout with the given dropout rate. Example: D-0.5
An example architecture might be --cnn=CB-16-5-2-same,M-3-2,F,H-100,D-0.5
.
You can assume the resulting network is valid; it is fine to crash if it is not.
After a successful ReCodEx submission, you can try obtaining the best accuracy
on MNIST and then advance to cifar_competition
.

padding, specified in the args.cnn
option.
The args.cnn
contains comma-separated layer specifications in the format
filters-kernel_size-stride
.
Of course, you cannot use any TensorFlow convolutional operation (instead,
implement the forward and backward pass using matrix multiplication and other
operations), nor the tf.GradientTape
for gradient computation.
To make debugging easier, the template supports a --verify
option, which
allows comparing the forward pass and the three gradients you compute in the
backward pass to correct values.
Finally, it is a good idea to read the TensorFlow guide about tensor slicing.
Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

The goal of this assignment is to use pretrained EfficientNet-B0 model to achieve best accuracy in CAGS classification.
The CAGS dataset consists
of images of cats and dogs of size $224×224$, each classified in one of
the 34 breeds and each containing a mask indicating the presence of the animal.
To load the dataset, use the cags_dataset.py
module. The dataset is stored in a
TFRecord file
and each element is encoded as a
tf.train.Example,
which is decoded using the CAGS.parse
method.
To load the EfficientNet-B0, use the provided
efficient_net.py
module. Its method pretrained_efficientnet_b0(include_top, dynamic_input_shape=False)
:
tf.keras.Model
processing image of shape $(224, 224, 3)$ with
float values in range $[0, 1]$ and producing a list of results:
include_top == True
, the network will include the final classification
layer and produce a distribution on 1000 classes (whose names are in
imagenet_classes.py);include_top == False
, the network will return image features (the result
of the last global average pooling);An example performing classification of given images is available in image_classification.py.
A note on finetuning: each tf.keras.layers.Layer
has a mutable trainable
property indicating whether its variables should be updated – however, after
changing it, you need to call .compile
again (or otherwise make sure the list
of trainable variables for the optimizer is updated). Furthermore, training
argument passed to the invocation call decides whether the layer is executed in
training regime (neurons gets dropped in dropout, batch normalization computes
estimates on the batch) or in inference regime. There is one exception though
– if trainable == False
on a batch normalization layer, it runs in the
inference regime even when training == True
.
The task is a competition. Everyone who submits a solution which achieves at least 90% test set accuracy will get 4 points; the rest 5 points will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your solutions.
You may want to start with the cags_classification.py template which generates the test set annotation in the required format.

The goal of this assignment is to use pretrained EfficientNet-B0 model to
achieve best image segmentation IoU score on the CAGS dataset.
The dataset and the EfficientNet-B0 is described in the cags_classification
assignment.
A mask is evaluated using intersection over union (IoU) metric, which is the
intersection of the gold and predicted mask divided by their union, and the
whole test set score is the average of its masks' IoU. A TensorFlow compatible
metric is implemented by the class MaskIoUMetric
of the
cags_dataset.py
module, which can also evaluate your predictions (either by running with
--task=segmentation --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_segmentation_file
method).
The task is a competition. Everyone who submits a solution which achieves at least 87% test set IoU gets 4 points; the rest 5 points will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your solutions.
You may want to start with the cags_segmentation.py template, which generates the test set annotation in the required format – each mask should be encoded on a single line as a space separated sequence of integers indicating the length of alternating runs of zeros and ones.

This is a preparatory assignment for svhn_competition
. The goal is to
implement several bounding box manipulation routines in the
bboxes_utils.py
module. Notably, you need to implement the following methods:
bboxes_to_fast_rcnn
: convert given bounding boxes to a Fast R-CNN-like
representation relative to the given anchors;bboxes_from_fast_rcnn
: convert Fast R-CNN-like representations relative to
given anchors back to bounding boxes;bboxes_training
: given a list of anchors and gold objects, assign gold
objects to anchors and generate suitable training data (the exact algorithm
is described in the template).The bboxes_utils.py contains simple unit tests, which are evaluated when executing the module, which you can use to check the validity of your implementation. Note that the template does not contain type annotations because Python typing system is not flexible enough to describe the tensor shape changes.
When submitting to ReCodEx, the method main
is executed, returning the
implemented bboxes_to_fast_rcnn
, bboxes_from_fast_rcnn
and bboxes_training
methods. These methods are then executed and compared to the reference
implementation.

The goal of this assignment is to implement a system performing object recognition, optionally utilizing pretrained EfficientNet-B0 backbone.
The Street View House Numbers (SVHN) dataset
annotates for every photo all digits appearing on it, including their bounding
boxes. The dataset can be loaded using the svhn_dataset.py
module. Similarly to the CAGS
dataset, it is stored in a
TFRecord file
with tf.train.Example
elements. Every element is a dictionary with the following keys:
"image"
: a square 3-channel image,"classes"
: a 1D tensor with all digit labels appearing in the image,"bboxes"
: a [num_digits, 4]
2D tensor with bounding boxes of every
digit in the image.Given that the dataset elements are each of possibly different size and you want
to preprocess them using bboxes_training
, it might be more comfortable to
convert the dataset to NumPy. Alternatively, you can implement bboxes_training
using TensorFlow operations or call Numpy implementation of bboxes_training
directly in tf.data.Dataset.map
by using tf.numpy_function
,
see FAQ.
Similarly to the cags_classification
, you can load the EfficientNet-B0 using the provided
efficient_net.py
module. Note that the dynamic_input_shape=True
argument creates
a model capable of processing an input image of any size.
Each test set image annotation consists of a sequence of space separated
five-tuples label top left bottom right, and the annotation is considered
correct, if exactly the gold digits are predicted, each with IoU at least 0.5.
The whole test set score is then the prediction accuracy of individual images.
You can again evaluate your predictions using the
svhn_dataset.py
module, either by running with --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_file
method.
The task is a competition. Everyone who submits a solution which achieves at least 20% test set IoU gets 5 points; the rest 5 points will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your solutions. Note that I usually need at least 35% development set accuracy to achieve the required test set performance.
You should start with the svhn_competition.py template, which generates the test set annotation in the required format.
A baseline solution can use RetinaNet-like single stage detector, using only a single level of convolutional features (no FPN) with single-scale and single-aspect anchors. Focal loss is available as tf.losses.BinaryFocalCrossentropy and non-maximum suppression as tf.image.non_max_suppression or tf.image.combined_non_max_suppression.

In this assignment, you should extend tagger_cle
into a real-world Czech part-of-speech tagger. We will use
Czech PDT dataset loadable using the morpho_dataset.py
module. Note that the dataset contains more than 1500 unique POS tags and that
the POS tags have a fixed structure of 15 positions (so it is possible to
generate the POS tag characters independently).
You can use the following additional data in this assignment:
The task is a competition. Everyone who submits a solution with at least 92.5% label accuracy gets 4 points; the rest 5 points will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your solutions. Lastly, 3 bonus points will be given to anyone surpassing pre-neural-network state-of-the-art of 96.35%.
You can start with the
tagger_competition.py
template, which among others generates test set annotations in the required format. Note that
you can evaluate the predictions as usual using the morpho_dataset.py
module, either by running with --task=tagger --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_file
method.
You can try exploring the TensorBoard Projector with pre-trained embeddings
for 20k most frequent lemmas in
Czech
and English
– after extracting the archive, start
tensorboard --logdir dir_where_the_archive_is_extracted
.
In order to use the Projector tab yourself, you can take inspiration from the projector_export.py script, which was used to export the above pre-trained embeddings from the Word2vec format.

This assignment is an extension of tagger_we
task. Using the
tagger_crf.py
template, implement named entity recognition using CRF loss and CRF decoding
from the tensorflow_addons
package.
The evaluation is performed using the provided metric computing F1 score of the span prediction (i.e., a recognized possibly-multiword named entity is true positive if both the entity type and the span exactly match).
In practice, character-level embeddings (and also pre-trained word embeddings) would be used to obtain superior results.
Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

This assignment is a competition task in speech recognition area. Specifically,
your goal is to predict a sequence of letters given a spoken utterance.
We will be using Czech recordings from the Common Voice,
with input sound waves passed through the usual preprocessing – computing
Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs).
You can repeat this preprocessing on a given audio using the wav_decode
and
mfcc_extract
methods from the
common_voice_cs.py module.
This module can also load the dataset, downloading it when necessary (note that
it has 200MB, so it might take a while). Furthermore, you can listen to the
development portion of the dataset.
Additional following data can be utilized in this assignment:
The task is a competition.
The evaluation is performed by computing the edit distance to the gold letter
sequence, normalized by its length (a corresponding Keras metric
EditDistanceMetric
is provided by the common_voice_cs.py).
Everyone who submits a solution with at most 50% test set edit distance
gets 5 points; the rest 5 points will be distributed
depending on relative ordering of your solutions. Note that
you can evaluate the predictions as usual using the common_voice_cs.py
module, either by running with --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_file
method.
Start with the speech_recognition.py template which contains instructions for using the CTC loss and generates the test set annotation in the required format.

The dataset consists of pairs of (document, label) and can be (down)loaded using the
text_classification_dataset.py
module. When loading the dataset, a tokenizer
might be provided, and if it is,
the document is also passed through the tokenizer and the resulting tokens are
added to the dataset.
Even though this assignment is not a competition, your goal is to submit test
set annotations with at least 77% accuracy. As usual, you can evaluate your
predictions using the text_classification_dataset.py
module, either by running with --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_file
method.
Note that contrary to working with EfficientNet, you need to finetune the Electra model in order to achieve the required accuracy.
You can start with the sentiment_analysis.py template, which among others loads the Electra Czech model and generates test set annotations in the required format. Note that bert_example.py module illustrate the usage of both the Electra tokenizer and the Electra model.

Wed May 11, 14:45: Unfortunately, several contexts in the initial version of the dataset were incorrect (not belonging to the questions). The dataset has been fixed just now, so please redownload it. More details in Piazza.
Implement the best possible model for reading comprehension task using
a translated version of the SQuAD 1.1 dataset, utilizing a provided
Czech RoBERTa model ufal/robeczech-base
.
The dataset can be loaded using the
reading_comprehension_dataset.py
module. The loaded dataset is the direct reprentation of the data and not yet
ready to be directly trained on. Each of the train
, dev
and test
datasets
are composed of a list of paragraphs, each consisting of:
context
: text with the information;qas
: list of questions and answers, where each item consists of:
question
: text of the question;answers
: a list of answers, each answer is composed of:
text
: string of the text, exactly as appearing in the context;start
: character offset of the answer text in the context.In the train
and dev
sets, each question has exactly one answer, while in
the test
set there might be several answers. We evaluate the reading
comprehension task using accuracy, where an answer is considered correct if
its text is exactly equal to some correct answer. You can evaluate your
predictions as usual with the
reading_comprehension_dataset.py
module, either by running with --evaluate=path
arguments, or using its
evaluate_file
method.
The task is a competition. Everyone who submits a solution
a solution with at least 65% answer accuracy gets 4 points; the rest 5 points
will be distributed depending on relative ordering of your solutions. Note that
usually achieving 62% on the dev
set is enough to get 65% on the test
set (because of multiple references in the test
set).
Note that contrary to working with EfficientNet, you need to finetune the RobeCzech model in order to achieve the required accuracy.
You can start with the reading_comprehension.py template, which among others (down)loads the data and the RobeCzech model, and describes the format of the required test set annotations.

During evaluation in ReCodEx, two different random seeds will be employed, and you need to reach the required return on all of them. Time limit for each test is 5 minutes.
Deadline: Jun 30, 23:59 2 points
This is a continuation of the reinforce
assignment.
Using the reinforce_baseline.py template, solve the continuous CartPole-v1 environment environment using the REINFORCE with baseline algorithm.
Using a baseline lowers the variance of the value function gradient estimator, which allows faster training and decreases sensitivity to hyperparameter values. To reflect this effect in ReCodEx, note that the evaluation phase will automatically start after 200 episodes. Using only 200 episodes for training in this setting is probably too little for the REINFORCE algorithm, but suffices for the variant with a baseline. In this assignment, you must train your agent in ReCodEx using the provided environment only.
Your goal is to reach an average return of 475 during 100 evaluation episodes.
During evaluation in ReCodEx, two different random seeds will be employed, and you need to reach the required return on all of them. Time limit for each test is 5 minutes.
Deadline: Jun 30, 23:59 2 points
This is a continuation of the reinforce_baseline
assignment.
The supplied cart_pole_pixels_environment.py
generates a pixel representation of the CartPole
environment
as an $80×80$ image with three channels, with each channel representing one time step
(i.e., the current observation and the two previous ones).
To pass the assignment, you need to reach an average return of 400 in 100 evaluation episodes. During evaluation in ReCodEx, two different random seeds will be employed, and you need to reach the required return on all of them. Time limit for each test is 10 minutes.
You should probably train the model locally and submit the already pretrained model to ReCodEx.
Start with the reinforce_pixels.py template, which parses several parameters and creates the correct environment.
Deadline: Jun 30, 23:59 4 points
Implement a simple variant of learning-to-learn architecture using the learning_to_learn.py template. Utilizing the Omniglot dataset loadable using the omniglot_dataset.py module, the goal is to learn to classify a sequence of images using a custom hierarchy by employing external memory.
The inputs image sequences consists of args.classes
random chosen Omniglot
classes, each class being assigned a randomly chosen label. For every chosen
class, args.images_per_class
images are randomly selected. Apart from the
images, the input contain the random labels one step after the corresponding
images (with the first label being -1). The gold outputs are also the labels,
but without the one-step offset.
The input images should be passed through a CNN feature extraction module
and then processed using memory augmented LSTM controller; the external memory
contains enough memory cells, each with args.cell_size
units. In each step,
the controller emits:
args.read_heads
read keys, each used to perform a read from memory as
a weighted combination of cells according to the softmax of cosine
similarities of the read key and the memory cells;Note that your results may be slightly different, depending on your CPU type and whether you use a GPU.

In the competitions, your goal is to train a model and then predict target values on the given unannotated test set.
When submitting a competition solution to ReCodEx, you can include any
number of files of any kind, and either submit them individually or
compess them in a .zip
file. However, there should be exactly one
text file with the test set annotation (.txt
) and at least one
Python source (.py/ipynb
) containing the model training and prediction.
The Python sources are not executed, but must be included for inspection.
For every submission, ReCodEx checks the above conditions (exactly one .txt
,
at least one .py/ipynb
) and whether the given annotations can be evaluated without
error. If not, it will report a corresponding error in the logs.
Before the deadline, ReCodEx prints the exact achieved score, but only if it is worse than the baseline.
If you surpass the baseline, the assignment is marked as solved in ReCodEx and you immediately get regular points for the assignment. However, ReCodEx does not print the reached score.
After the competition deadline, the latest submission of every user surpassing the required baseline participates in a competition. Additional bonus points are then awarded according to the ordering of the performance of the participating submissions.
After the competition results announcement, ReCodEx starts to show the exact performance for all the already submitted solutions and also for the solutions submitted later.
Installing to central user packages repository
You can install all required packages to central user packages repository using
pip3 install --user tensorflow==2.8.0 tensorflow-addons==0.16.1 tensorflow-probability==0.16.0 tensorflow-hub==0.12.0 gym==0.20.0 scipy transformers==4.18.0 protobuf~=3.20.1
.
Installing to a virtual environment
Python supports virtual environments, which are directories containing
independent sets of installed packages. You can create a virtual environment
by running python3 -m venv VENV_DIR
followed by
VENV_DIR/bin/pip3 install tensorflow==2.8.0 tensorflow-addons==0.16.1 tensorflow-probability==0.16.0 tensorflow-hub==0.12.0 gym==0.20.0 scipy transformers==4.18.0 protobuf~=3.20.1
(or VENV_DIR/Scripts/pip3
on Windows).
Windows installation
On Windows, it can happen that python3
is not in PATH, while py
command
is – in that case you can use py -m venv VENV_DIR
, which uses the newest
Python available, or for example py -3.9 -m venv VENV_DIR
, which uses
Python version 3.9.
If your Windows TensorFlow fails with ImportError: DLL load failed
,
you are probably missing
Visual C++ 2019 Redistributable.
If you encounter a problem creating the logs in the args.logdir
directory,
a possible cause is that the path is longer than 260 characters, which is
the default maximum length of a complete path on Windows. However, you can
increase this limit on Windows 10, version 1607 or later, by following
the instructions.
macOS installation
With an Intel processor, you should not need anything special.
If you have Apple Silicon, the installation is a bit more involved, because some Python packages do not yet have an official Arm64 binary build. The easiest workaround is to use Conda, which contains all the required dependencies.
Download Conda env.
Install it and activate it.
chmod +x ~/Downloads/Miniforge3-MacOSX-arm64.sh
sh ~/Downloads/Miniforge3-MacOSX-arm64.sh
source ~/miniforge3/bin/activate
Install the Arm64 TensorFlow dependencies.
conda install -c apple tensorflow-deps==2.8.0
Install the Arm64 build of TensorFlow.
python -m pip install tensorflow-macos==2.8.0
GPU support on Linux and Windows
TensorFlow 2.8 supports NVIDIA GPU out of the box, but you need to install CUDA 11.2 and cuDNN 8.1 libraries yourself.
GPU support on macOS
The AMD and Apple Silicon GPUs can be used by installing a plugin providing the GPU acceleration using:
python -m pip install tensorflow-metal
Errors when running with a GPU
If you encounter errors when running with a GPU:
export TF_FORCE_GPU_ALLOW_GROWTH=true
export TF_CPP_MIN_LOG_LEVEL=0
environmental variable,
which increases verbosity of the log messages.How to install TensorFlow dependencies on MetaCentrum?

How to install TensorFlow on MetaCentrum?
Once you have the required dependencies, you can create a virtual environment and install TensorFlow in it. However, note that by default the MetaCentrum jobs have a little disk space, so read about how to ask for scratch storage when submitting a job, and about quotas,
TL;DR:
Run an interactive CPU job, asking for 16GB scratch space:
qsub -l select=1:ncpus=1:mem=8gb:scratch_local=16gb -I
In the job, use the allocated scratch space as a temporary directory:
export TMPDIR=$SCRATCHDIR
Finally, create the virtual environment and install TensorFlow in it:
module add python/3.8.0-gcc-rab6t cuda/cuda-11.2.0-intel-19.0.4-tn4edsz cudnn/cudnn-8.1.0.77-11.2-linux-x64-intel-19.0.4-wx22b5t
python3 -m venv CHOSEN_VENV_DIR

How to run a GPU computation on MetaCentrum?
First, read the official MetaCentrum documentation: Beginners guide, About scheduling system, GPU clusters.
TL;DR: To run an interactive GPU job with 1 CPU, 1 GPU, 16GB RAM, and 8GB scatch space, run:
qsub -q gpu -l select=1:ncpus=1:ngpus=1:mem=16gb:scratch_local=8gb -I
To run a script in a non-interactive way, replace the -I
option with the script to be executed.
If you want to run a CPU-only computation, remove the -q gpu
and ngpus=1:
from the above commands.
How to install TensorFlow dependencies on AIC?
To install CUDA, cuDNN and Python 3.9 on AIC, you should add the following to
your .profile
:
export PATH="/lnet/aic/data/python/3.9.9/bin:$PATH"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/lnet/aic/opt/cuda/cuda-11.2/lib64:/lnet/aic/opt/cuda/cuda-11.2/cudnn/8.1.1/lib64:/lnet/aic/opt/cuda/cuda-11.2/extras/CUPTI/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
How to run a GPU computation on AIC?
First, read the official AIC documentation: Submitting CPU Jobs, Submitting GPU Jobs.
TL;DR: To run an interactive GPU job with 1 CPU, 1 GPU, and 16GB RAM, run:
qrsh -q gpu.q -l gpu=1,mem_free=16G,h_data=16G -pty yes bash -l
To run a script requiring a GPU in a non-interactive way, use
qsub -q gpu.q -l gpu=1,mem_free=16G,h_data=16G -cwd -b y SCRIPT_PATH
If you want to run a CPU-only computation, remove the -q gpu.q
and gpu=1,
from the above commands.
Is it possible to keep the solutions in a Git repository?
Definitely. Keeping the solutions in a branch of your repository, where you merge them with the course repository, is probably a good idea. However, please keep the cloned repository with your solutions private.
On GitHub, do not create a public fork with your solutions
If you keep your solutions in a GitHub repository, please do not create a clone of the repository by using the Fork button – this way, the cloned repository would be public.
Of course, if you just want to create a pull request, GitHub requires a public fork and that is fine – just do not store your solutions in it.
How to clone the course repository?
To clone the course repository, run
git clone https://github.com/ufal/npfl114
This creates the repository in the npfl114
subdirectory; if you want a different
name, add it as a last parameter.
To update the repository, run git pull
inside the repository directory.
How to keep the course repository as a branch in your repository?
If you want to store the course repository just in a local branch of your existing repository, you can run the following command while in it:
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ufal/npfl114
git fetch upstream
git checkout -t upstream/master
This creates a branch master
; if you want a different name, add
-b BRANCH_NAME
to the last command.
In both cases, you can update your checkout by running git pull
while in it.
How to merge the course repository with your modifications?
If you want to store your solutions in a branch merged with the course repository, you should start by
git remote add upstream https://github.com/ufal/npfl114
git pull upstream master
which creates a branch master
; if you want a different name,
change the last argument to master:BRANCH_NAME
.
You can then commit to this branch and push it to your repository.
To merge the current course repository with your branch, run
git merge upstream master
while in your branch. Of course, it might be necessary to resolve conflicts if both you and I modified the same place in the templates.
What files can be submitted to ReCodEx?
You can submit multiple files of any type to ReCodEx. There is a limit of 20 files per submission, with a total size of 20MB.
What file does ReCodEx execute and what arguments does it use?
Exactly one file with py
suffix must contain a line starting with def main(
.
Such a file is imported by ReCodEx and the main
method is executed
(during the import, __name__ == "__recodex__"
).
The file must also export an argument parser called parser
. ReCodEx uses its
arguments and default values, but it overwrites some of the arguments
depending on the test being executed – the template should always indicate which
arguments are set by ReCodEx and which are left intact.
What are the time and memory limits?
The memory limit during evaluation is 1.5GB. The time limit varies, but it should be at least 10 seconds and at least twice the running time of my solution.
How to work with the usual tf.Tensor
s?
Read the TensorFlow Tensor guide and also the TensorFlow tensor indexing guide.
How to work with the tf.RaggedTensor
s?
Read the TensorFlow RaggedTensor guide.
How to convert the tf.RaggedTensor
to a tf.Tensor
and back?
Often, you might want to convert a tf.RaggedTensor
to a tf.Tensor
and then
back.
To obtain just the valid elements (so the rank of the resulting
tf.Tensor
is smaller by one):
tensor_with_valid_elements = ragged_tensor.values
...
new_ragged_tensor = ragged_tensor.with_values(new_tensor_with_valid_elements)
To obtain a tf.Tensor
with the corresponding shape (so padding elements
are added where needed):
tensor_with_padding = ragged_tensor.to_tensor()
...
new_ragged_tensor = tf.RaggedTensor.from_tensor(new_tensor_with_padding, ragged_tensor.row_lengths())
How to look what is in a tf.data.Dataset
?
The tf.data.Dataset
is not just an array, but a description of a pipeline,
which can produce data if requested. A simple way to run the pipeline is
to iterate it using Python iterators:
dataset = tf.data.Dataset.range(10)
for entry in dataset:
print(entry)
How to use tf.data.Dataset
with model.fit
or model.evaluate
?
To use a tf.data.Dataset
in Keras, the dataset elements should be pairs
(input_data, gold_labels)
, where input_data
and gold_labels
must be
already batched. For example, given CAGS
dataset, you can preprocess
training data for cags_classification
as (for development data, you would
remove the .shuffle
):
train = cags.train.map(lambda example: (example["image"], example["label"]))
train = train.shuffle(10000, seed=args.seed)
train = train.batch(args.batch_size)
Is every iteration through a tf.data.Dataset
the same?
No. Because the dataset is only a pipeline generating data, it is called
each time the dataset is iterated – therefore, every .shuffle
is called
in every iteration.
How to generate different random numbers each epoch during tf.data.Dataset.map
?
When a global random seed is set, methods like tf.random.uniform
generate
the same sequence of numbers on each iteration.
Instead, create a Generator
object and use it to produce random numbers.
generator = tf.random.Generator.from_seed(42)
data = tf.data.Dataset.from_tensor_slices(tf.zeros(10, tf.int32))
data = data.map(lambda x: x + generator.uniform([], maxval=10, dtype=tf.int32))
for _ in range(3):
print(*[element.numpy() for element in data])
When a GPU is visible, you should create the generator
explicitly on a CPU
using a with tf.device("/cpu:0"):
block (on macOS, it will crash otherwise).
How to call numpy methods or other non-tf functions in tf.data.Dataset.map
?
You can use tf.numpy_function to call a numpy function even in a computational graph. However, the results have no static shape information and you need to set it manually – ideally using tf.ensure_shape, which both sets the static shape and verifies during execution that the real shape matches it.
For example, to use the bboxes_training
method from
bboxes_utils, you could proceed as follows:
anchors = np.array(...)
def prepare_data(example):
anchor_classes, anchor_bboxes = tf.numpy_function(
bboxes_utils.bboxes_training, [anchors, example["classes"], example["bboxes"], 0.5], (tf.int32, tf.float32))
anchor_classes = tf.ensure_shape(anchor_classes, [len(anchors)])
anchor_bboxes = tf.ensure_shape(anchor_bboxes, [len(anchors), 4])
...
How to use ImageDataGenerator
in tf.data.Dataset.map
?
The ImageDataGenerator
offers a .random_transform
method, so we can use
tf.numpy_function
from the previous answer:
train_generator = tf.keras.preprocessing.image.ImageDataGenerator(...)
def augment(image, label):
return tf.ensure_shape(
tf.numpy_function(train_generator.random_transform, [image], tf.float32),
image.shape
), label
dataset.map(augment)
How to debug problems “inside” computation graphs with weird stack traces?
At the beginning of your program, run
tf.config.run_functions_eagerly(True)
The tf.funcion
s (with the exception of the ones used in tf.data
pipelines)
are then not traced (i.e., no computation graphs are created) and the pure
Python code is executed instead.
How to debug problems “inside” tf.data
pipelines with weird stack traces?
Unfortunately, the solution above does not affect tracing in tf.data
pipelines (for example in tf.data.Dataset.map
). However, since TF 2.5, the
command
tf.data.experimental.enable_debug_mode()
should disable any asynchrony, parallelism, or non-determinism and forces
Python execution (as opposed to trace-compiled graph execution) of
user-defined functions passed into transformations such as tf.data.Dataset.map
.
How to make a part of the network frozen, so that its weights are not updated?
Each tf.keras.layers.Layer
/tf.keras.Model
has a mutable trainable
property indicating whether its variables should be updated – however, after
changing it, you need to call .compile
again (or otherwise make sure the
list of trainable variables for the optimizer is updated).
Note that once trainable == False
, the insides of a layer are no longer
considered, even if some its sub-layers have trainable == True
. Therefore, if
you want to freeze only some sub-layers of a layer you use in your model, the
layer itself must have trainable == True
.
How to choose whether dropout/batch normalization is executed in training or inference regime?
When calling a tf.keras.layers.Layer
/tf.keras.Model
, a named option
training
can be specified, indicating whether training or inference regime
should be used. For a model, this option is automatically passed to its layers
which require it, and Keras automatically passes it during
model.{fit,evaluate,predict}
.
However, you can manually pass for example training=False
to a layer when
using Functional API, meaning that layer is executed in the inference
regime even when the whole model is training.
How does trainable
and training
interact?
The only layer, which is influenced by both these options, is batch normalization, for which:
trainable == False
, the layer is always executed in inference regime;trainable == True
, the training/inference regime is chosen according
to the training
option.How to use linear warmup?
You can prepend any following_schedule
by using the following LinearWarmup
schedule:
class LinearWarmup(tf.optimizers.schedules.LearningRateSchedule):
def __init__(self, warmup_steps, following_schedule):
self._warmup_steps = warmup_steps
self._warmup = tf.optimizers.schedules.PolynomialDecay(0., warmup_steps, following_schedule(0))
self._following = following_schedule
def __call__(self, step):
return tf.cond(step < self._warmup_steps,
lambda: self._warmup(step),
lambda: self._following(step - self._warmup_steps))
Cannot start TensorBoard after installation
If tensorboard
executable cannot be found, make sure the directory with pip installed
packages is in your PATH (that directory is either in your virtual environment
if you use a virtual environment, or it should be ~/.local/bin
on Linux
and %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python3[7-9]
and
%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python3[7-9]\Scripts
on Windows).
How to create TensorBoard logs manually?
Start by creating a SummaryWriter using for example:
writer = tf.summary.create_file_writer(args.logdir, flush_millis=10 * 1000)
and then you can generate logs inside a with writer.as_default()
block.
You can either specify step
manually in each call, or you can set
it as the first argument of as_default()
. Also, during training you
usually want to log only some batches, so the logging block during
training usually looks like:
if optimizer.iterations % 100 == 0:
with self._writer.as_default(step=optimizer.iterations):
# logging
What can be logged in TensorBoard?
tf.summary.scalar(name like "train/loss", value, [step])
tf.summary.histogram(name like "train/output_layer", tensor value castable to `tf.float64`, [step])
[num_images, h, w, channels]
, where
channels
can be 1 (grayscale), 2 (grayscale + alpha), 3 (RGB), 4 (RGBA):tf.summary.image(name like "train/samples", images, [step], [max_outputs=at most this many images])
tf.summary.text(name like "hyperparameters", markdown, [step])
[num_clips, samples, channels]
and values in $[-1,1]$ range:tf.summary.audio(name like "train/samples", clips, sample_rate, [step], [max_outputs=at most this many clips])
To pass the practicals, you need to obtain at least 80 points, excluding the bonus points. Note that all surplus points (both bonus and non-bonus) will be transfered to the exam. In total, assignments for at least 120 points (not including the bonus points) will be available, and if you solve all the assignments (any non-zero amount of points counts as solved), you automatically pass the exam with grade 1.
To pass the exam, you need to obtain at least 60, 75 and 90 out of 100-point exam, to obtain grades 3, 2 and 1, respectively. (PhD students with binary grades require 75 points.) The exam consists of 100-point-worth questions from the list below (the questions are randomly generated, but in such a way that there is at least one question from every but the first lecture). In addition, you can get surplus points from the practicals and at most 10 points for community work (i.e., fixing slides or reporting issues) – but only the points you already have at the time of the exam count. You can take the exam without passing the practicals first.
