Creates ResNet and ResNet-RS family models.

This implements the Deep Residual Network from: Kaiming He, Xiangyu Zhang, Shaoqing Ren, Jian Sun. Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition. ( and Irwan Bello, William Fedus, Xianzhi Du, Ekin D. Cubuk, Aravind Srinivas, Tsung-Yi Lin, Jonathon Shlens, Barret Zoph. Revisiting ResNets: Improved Training and Scaling Strategies. (

model_id An int of the depth of ResNet backbone model.
input_specs A tf.keras.layers.InputSpec of the input tensor.
depth_multiplier A float of the depth multiplier to uniformaly scale up all layers in channel size. This argument is also referred to as width_multiplier in (
stem_type A str of stem type of ResNet. Default to v0. If set to v1, use ResNet-D type stem (
resnetd_shortcut A bool of whether to use ResNet-D shortcut in downsampling blocks.
replace_stem_max_pool A bool of whether to replace the max pool in stem with a stride-2 conv,
se_ratio A float or None. Ratio of the Squeeze-and-Excitation layer.
init_stochastic_depth_rate A float of initial stochastic depth rate.
scale_stem A bool of whether to scale stem layers.
activation A str name of the activation function.
use_sync_bn If True, use synchronized batch normalization.
norm_momentum A float of normalization momentum for the moving average.
norm_epsilon A small float added to variance to avoid dividing by zero.
kernel_initializer A str for kernel initializer of convolutional layers.
kernel_regularizer A tf.keras.regularizers.Regularizer object for Conv2D. Default to None.
bias_regularizer A tf.keras.regularizers.Regularizer object for Conv2D. Default to None.
bn_trainable A bool that indicates whether batch norm layers should be trainable. Default to True.
**kwargs Additional keyword arguments to be passed.

output_specs A dict of {level: TensorShape} pairs for the model output.



Calls the model on new inputs and returns the outputs as tensors.

In this case call() just reapplies all ops in the graph to the new inputs (e.g. build a new computational graph from the provided inputs).

inputs Input tensor, or dict/list/tuple of input tensors.
training Boolean or boolean scalar tensor, indicating whether to run the Network in training mode or inference mode.
mask A mask or list of masks. A mask can be either a boolean tensor or None (no mask). For more details, check the guide here.

A tensor if there is a single output, or a list of tensors if there are more than one outputs.
