class neupy.algorithms.IRPROPPlus[source]

iRPROP+ is an optimization algorithm for supervised learning. This is a variation of the RPROP algorithm.

minstep : float

Minimum possible value for step. Defaults to 0.001.

maxstep : float

Maximum possible value for step. Defaults to 10.

increase_factor : float

Increase factor for step in case when gradient doesn’t change sign compare to previous epoch.

decrease_factor : float

Decrease factor for step in case when gradient changes sign compare to previous epoch.

regularizer : function or None

Network’s regularizer.

network : list, tuple or LayerConnection instance

Network’s architecture. There are a few ways to define it.

  • List of layers. For instance, [Input(2), Tanh(4), Relu(1)].
  • Constructed layers. For instance, Input(2) >> Tanh(4) >> Relu(1).
loss : str or function

Error/loss function. Defaults to mse.

  • mae - Mean Absolute Error.
  • mse - Mean Squared Error.
  • rmse - Root Mean Squared Error.
  • msle - Mean Squared Logarithmic Error.
  • rmsle - Root Mean Squared Logarithmic Error.
  • categorical_crossentropy - Categorical cross entropy.
  • binary_crossentropy - Binary cross entropy.
  • binary_hinge - Binary hinge entropy.
  • categorical_hinge - Categorical hinge entropy.
  • Custom function which accepts two mandatory arguments. The first one is expected value and the second one is predicted value. Example:
def custom_func(expected, predicted):
    return expected - predicted
show_epoch : int

This property controls how often the network will display information about training. It has to be defined as positive integer. For instance, number 100 mean that network shows summary at 1st, 100th, 200th, 300th … and last epochs.

Defaults to 1.

shuffle_data : bool

If it’s True than training data will be shuffled before the training. Defaults to True.

signals : dict, list or function

Function that will be triggered after certain events during the training.

verbose : bool

Property controls verbose output in terminal. The True value enables informative output in the terminal and False - disable it. Defaults to False.

predict(X) Predicts output for the specified input.
train(X_train, y_train, X_test=None, y_test=None, epochs=100) Train network. You can control network’s training procedure with epochs parameter. The X_test and y_test should be presented both in case network’s validation required after each training epoch.
fit(*args, **kwargs) Alias to the train method.
one_training_update(X_train, y_train)[source]

Function would be trigger before run all training procedure related to the current epoch.

epoch : int

Current epoch number.
