Stochastic gradient descent and momentum optimizer.

Inherits From: Optimizer

Computes:

theta(t+1) = theta(t) - learning_rate * gradient
gradient is evaluated at theta(t).

or Computes (if nesterov = False):

v(t+1) = momentum * v(t) - learning_rate * gradient
theta(t+1) = theta(t) + v(t+1)
if `nesterov` is False, gradient is evaluated at theta(t).
if `nesterov` is True, gradient is evaluated at theta(t) + momentum * v(t),
  and the variables always store theta + m v instead of theta

Some of the args below are hyperparameters, where a hyperparameter is defined as a scalar Tensor, a regular Python value, or a callable (which will be evaluated when apply_gradients is called) returning a scalar Tensor or a Python value.

References

nesterov = True, See [Sutskever et al., 2013](
  http://jmlr.org/proceedings/papers/v28/sutskever13.pdf).

learning_rate float hyperparameter >= 0. Learning rate.
momentum float hyperparameter >= 0 that accelerates SGD in the relevant direction and dampens oscillations.
nesterov boolean. Whether to apply Nesterov momentum.
name Optional name prefix for the operations created when applying gradients. Defaults to 'SGD'.
**kwargs keyword arguments. Allowed to be {clipnorm, clipvalue, lr, decay}. clipnorm is clip gradients by norm; clipvalue is clip gradients by value, decay is included for backward compatibility to allow time inverse decay of learning rate. lr is included for backward compatibility, recommended to use learning_rate instead.

Eager Compatibility

When eager execution is enabled, learning_rate can be a callable that takes no arguments and returns the actual value to use. This can be useful for changing these values across different invocations of optimizer functions.

iterations Variable. The number of training steps this Optimizer has run.
weights Returns variables of this Optimizer based on the order created.

Methods

add_slot

View source

Add a new slot variable for var.

add_weight

View source

apply_gradients

View source

Apply gradients to variables.

This is the second part of minimize(). It returns an Operation that applies gradients.

Args
grads_and_vars List of (gradient, variable) pairs.
name Optional name for the returned operation. Default to the name passed to the Optimizer constructor.

Returns
An Operation that applies the specified gradients. If global_step was not None, that operation also increments global_step.

Raises
TypeError If grads_and_vars is malformed.
ValueError If none of the variables have gradients.

from_config

View source

Creates an optimizer from its config.

This method is the reverse of get_config, capable of instantiating the same optimizer from the config dictionary.

Arguments
config A Python dictionary, typically the output of get_config.
custom_objects A Python dictionary mapping names to additional Python objects used to create this optimizer, such as a function used for a hyperparameter.

Returns
An optimizer instance.

get_config

View source

Returns the config of the optimimizer.

An optimizer config is a Python dictionary (serializable) containing the configuration of an optimizer. The same optimizer can be reinstantiated later (without any saved state) from this configuration.

Returns
Python dictionary.

get_gradients

View source

Returns gradients of loss with respect to params.

Arguments
loss Loss tensor.
params List of variables.

Returns
List of gradient tensors.

Raises
ValueError In case any gradient cannot be computed (e.g. if gradient function not implemented).

get_slot

View source

get_slot_names

View source

A list of names for this optimizer's slots.

get_updates

View source

get_weights

View source

minimize

View source

Minimize loss by updating var_list.

This method simply computes gradient using tf.GradientTape and calls apply_gradients(). If you want to process the gradient before applying then call tf.GradientTape and apply_gradients() explicitly instead of using this function.

Args
loss A callable taking no arguments which returns the value to minimize.
var_list list or tuple of Variable objects to update to minimize loss, or a callable returning the list or tuple of Variable objects. Use callable when the variable list would otherwise be incomplete before minimize since the variables are created at the first time loss is called.
grad_loss Optional. A Tensor holding the gradient computed for loss.
name Optional name for the returned operation.

Returns
An Operation that updates the variables in var_list. If global_step was not None, that operation also increments global_step.

Raises
ValueError If some of the variables are not Variable objects.

set_weights

View source

variables

View source

Returns variables of this Optimizer based on the order created.
