Gorgonia: Primitives for Building Neural Networks in Go

Lightning talk given at Golang Sydney September 2016. This are the slides that introduce Gorgonia which was published earlier that day.

Other Decks in Programming


  1. Gorgonia ¡  Library that provides the primitives to dynamically build

    neural networks and assorted machine learning algorithms ¡  Is like Theano and Tensorflow, but written in Go. Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  2. Using Gorgonia ¡  Build a expression graph ¡  Perform symbolic

    differentiation ¡  Perform automatic differentiation Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  3. Using Gorgonia ¡  Build an expression graph g  :=  NewGraph()

      x  :=  NewMatrix(g,  Float64,  WithName("x"),  WithShape(5,5))   w  :=  NewVector(g,  Float64,  WithName("w"),  WithShape(5))   xw  :=  Must(Mul(x,w))   act  :=  Must(Sigmoid(xw))   Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  4. Using Gorgonia ¡  Symbolic differentiation cost  :=  Must(Sum(act))  //or  mean

     if  you  do  batch  size  stuff   grads,  err  :=  Grad(cost,  w)   //  grads[0]  is     ∂cost ∂w Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  5. Using Gorgonia ¡  Executing Expression Graph ¡  Two VMs available:

    ¡  TapeMachine   ¡  LispMachine   ¡  Created for different purposes Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  6. Using Gorgonia ¡  TapeMachine ¡  Optimized for compile-once-execute-many-times expression graphs

    ¡  LispMachine ¡  Good for dynamically changing expression graphs (like LSTMs or GRUs) ¡  Mix and match running modes! Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  7. Using Gorgonia ¡  Executing a Expression Graph prog,  locMap  :=

     Compile(g)   m  :=  NewTapeMachine()   Let(x,  xVal)   Let(w,  wVal)  //  or  could  be  init  along  the  Node   if  err  :=  m.RunAll();  err  !=  nil  {    log.Fatal(err)   } Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  8. Using Gorgonia prog,  locMap  :=  Compile(g)   m  :=  NewTapeMachine()

      Let(x,  xVal)   Let(w,  wVal)   if  err  :=  m.RunAll();  err  !=  nil  {    log.Fatal(err)   } f  =  theano.function(inputs=[x],   outputs=grads)   f(xVal)   Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  9. Using Gorgonia prog,  locMap  :=  Compile(g)   m  :=  NewTapeMachine()

      Let(x,  xVal)   Let(w,  wVal)   if  err  :=  m.RunAll();  err  !=  nil  {    log.Fatal(err)   } f  =  theano.function(inputs=[x],   outputs=grads)   f(xVal)   More verbose, but more mental clarity with regards to the running mode of the expression* *pure opinion(probably biased) by the creator of Gorgonia Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  10. Using Gorgonia ¡ The Program 0    loadArg  8208ce780  to  CPU0

      1    loadArg  8208ce840  to  CPU1   2    Alloc  Vector  Float64  CPU2   3    A  ×  b  [CPU0  CPU1]  CPU2  [Matrix  Float64,  Vector  Float64]  true  false  true   4    Do  Batched  BLAS   5    sigmoid  [CPU2]  CPU2  [Vector  Float64]    false  true  false   6    Σ[0]  [CPU2]  CPU3  [Vector  Float64]    false  false  false   7    const  1  []  CPU4  []      false  false  false   8    SizeOf=5  [CPU2]  CPU5  [Vector  Float64]    false  false  false   9    Repeat[0][CPU4  CPU5]  CPU6  [Float64,  Float64]    false  false  false   10  -­‐  [CPU4  CPU2]  CPU7  [Float64,  Vector  Float64]  false  false  false   11  ⊙  [CPU2  CPU7]  CPU2  [Vector  Float64,  Vector  Float64]  false  true  false   12  ⊙  [CPU2  CPU6]  CPU2  [Vector  Float64,  Vector  Float64]  false  true  false   13  Alloc  Matrix  Float64  CPU8   14  a  ⊗  b  [CPU2  CPU1]  CPU8  [Vector  Float64,  Vector  Float64]  true  false  true   15  Alloc  Vector  Float64  CPU9   16  Aᵀ  ×  b  [CPU0  CPU2]  CPU9  [Matrix  Float64,  Vector  Float64]  true  false  true   Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  11. Things I wrote with Gorgonia ¡  "Compose" music given inputs

    from music by John Williams, Murray Gold, and Bear McCreary ¡  Neural Tensor Machine ¡  Generative Models in general ¡  (also all the not-so-cool stuff like linear regression*) * The world's oldest machine learning algorithm, over 100years old and still going strong! Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  12. Things Gorgonia Can't Do (Yet) ¡  Convolutional neural networks ¡ 

    Im2Col not implemented yet ¡  Conv2D not implemented yet Follow @chewxy on Twitter
  13. The Ask ¡  Help out Gorgonia's project (released today!) ¡ 

    Test coverage is abysmal at 50%. 90% would be nice. ¡  Weird ASM bug wrt []float32   ¡  Add more fun Ops. ¡  Distributed Computing (tried to implement 3 times!!) ¡  Low-level Optimization (esp. re: malloc and gc) https://github.com/chewxy/gorgonia Follow @chewxy on Twitter
