NetArray

NetArray[]

represents an array in a net.

NetArray[propvalue]

specifies the property prop for the array.

NetArray["Name"name,"Array"array,]

specifies several properties for the array.

Details

  • NetArray is typically used to share arrays in NetChain/NetGraph or to define learnable parameters in FunctionLayer[].
  • All net arrays sharing the same name in a net are treated as the same underlying array by NetInitialize, NetTrain, etc.
  • The properties that can be specified are:
  • "Array"initial values or inialization method for the array
    "Dimensions"dimensions of the array
    "Name"name of the array, so that it can be shared
  • NetArray[] automatically gives a name (UUID) to the array and is equivalent to NetArray[Automatic].
  • NetInsertSharedArrays[layer] will return a new layer in which all its arrays have been replaced with named net arrays.

Examples

Basic Examples  (3)

Create a layer containing a shared array:

Create a chain that contains a shared array, used in two layers:

Initialize all arrays:

The weights from the two linear layers are the same (and will remain the same when training with NetTrain):

Extract all the shared arrays of a net:

Define a FunctionLayer that adds a list of learnable values to a list, initialized with arbitrary values:

Evaluate the layer on an input list:

The original NetArray corresponds to a NetArrayLayer in the equivalent NetGraph:
