NetDecoder

Listing of Net Decoders »

NetDecoder["name"]

represents a decoder that takes a net representation and decodes it into an expression of a given form.

NetDecoder[{"name",}]

represents a decoder with additional parameters specified.

Details

  • NetDecoder[][array] gives the specified decoded form for array.
  • NetDecoder[][{array1,array2, }] explicitly computes outputs for each of the arrayi.
  • When given a NumericArray as input, the output will be a NumericArray.
  • Possible named decoders include:
  • "Boolean"decode 1 and 0 as True and False
    "BPESubwordTokens"decode probability vectors as a string of subword tokens
    "Characters"decode probability vectors as a string of characters
    "Class"decode probability arrays as class labels
    "CTCBeamSearch"decode sequences of probability vectors trained with a CTCLossLayer
    "Image"decode a rank-3 array as a 2D image
    "Image3D"decode a rank-4 array as a 3D image
    "Tokens"decode probability vectors as a string of tokens
    "Function"decode using a custom function
  • A NetDecoder object can be attached to an output port of a net by specifying "port"->NetDecoder[] when constructing the net. Specifying "port"->"type" will create a decoder of the given type and attach it.
  • When a decoder is attached to the output of a net, net[input] will return the decoded output of the net. The raw output of the net can be obtained by specifying net[input,None].
  • NetDecoder is not involved in training done by NetTrain. However, when NetTrain is allowed to automatically attach a loss layer and a NetDecoder is attached to the output of the net, a NetEncoder of the same type will be created for the "Target" input of the loss layer.
  • NetDecoder[NetEncoder[]] will create a decoder based on the parameters of an existing encoder.
