class neupy.layers.Input[source]

Layer defines network’s input.

shape : int or tuple

Shape of the input features per sample. Batch dimension has to be excluded from the shape.

name : str or None

Layer’s name. Can be used as a reference to specific layer. Name Can be specified as:

  • String: Specified name will be used as a direct reference to the layer. For example, name=”fc”
  • Format string: Name pattern could be defined as a format string and specified field will be replaced with an index. For example, name=”fc{}” will be replaced with fc1, fc2 and so on. A bit more complex formatting methods are acceptable, for example, name=”fc-{:<03d}” will be converted to fc-001, fc-002, fc-003 and so on.
  • None: When value specified as None than name will be generated from the class name.

Defaults to None.


Feedforward Neural Network (FNN)

In the example, input layer defines network that expects 2D inputs (matrices). In other words, input to the network should be set of samples combined into matrix where each sample has 10 dimensional vector associated with it.

>>> from neupy.layers import *
>>> network = Input(10) >> Relu(5) >> Softmax(3)

Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)

In the example, input layer specified that we expect multiple 28x28 image as an input and each image should have single channel (images with no color).

>>> from neupy.layers import *
>>> network = join(
...     Input((28, 28, 1)),
...     Convolution((3, 3, 16)) >> Relu(),
...     Convolution((3, 3, 16)) >> Relu(),
...     Reshape()
...     Softmax(10),
... )
variables : dict

Variable names and their values. Dictionary can be empty in case if variables hasn’t been created yet.


variable(value, name, shape=None, trainable=True) Initializes variable with specified values.
get_output_shape(input_shape) Computes expected output shape from the layer based on the specified input shape.
output(*inputs, **kwargs) Propagates input through the layer. The kwargs variable might contain additional information that propagates through the network.
