Project #3: Training Networks with Tensorflow and Keras

$30.00

Overview
In this project you will be building a face attribute classifier for images. You will be experimenting with different architectures and measuring your results on each.
2 Dataset
You will be using a modified version of the FairFace dataset (https://github.com/joojs/fairface).
This is a set of 86,744 training face images and 10,954 validation face images. In order to
decrease the training time I converted all images to gray scale and resized them to 32 × 32.
Each face has 3 different attributes which can be used for a classification task: race, gender,
and age. All files can be found in the zip file on Canvas. The train folder contains the
training images and the fairface label train.csv file contains all the label. There is a similar
folder and file for the validation set.

COSC 424/525: Deep Learning
1 Overview
In this project you will be building a face attribute classifier for images. You will be experimenting with different architectures and measuring your results on each.
2 Dataset
You will be using a modified version of the FairFace dataset (https://github.com/joojs/fairface).
This is a set of 86,744 training face images and 10,954 validation face images. In order to
decrease the training time I converted all images to gray scale and resized them to 32 × 32.
Each face has 3 different attributes which can be used for a classification task: race, gender,
and age. All files can be found in the zip file on Canvas. The train folder contains the
training images and the fairface label train.csv file contains all the label. There is a similar
folder and file for the validation set.
As the three different attributes have a different number of possible values, your final
layers for each classifier will vary. For each of the networks below please attempt to classify
2 of the attributes (you can choose which).
3 Network Details
3.1 Task 1: Fully Connected Neural Network
1. Build a feed forward neural network with the following specifications (Test on two
different tasks):
ˆ Hidden layer 1: 1024 neurons with hyperbolic tangent activation function in each
neuron.
1
ˆ Hidden layer 2: 512 neurons, with sigmoid activation function in each of the
neuron.
ˆ 100 neurons, with rectified linear activation function in each of the neuron.
ˆ Output layer: n (depending on the task) neurons representing the n classes, using
the softmax activation function.
2. Using Min-Max scaling to scale the training dataset and using the same Min and Max
values from the training set scale the test dataset ( X−Xmin
Xmax−Xmin
).
3. Using mini-batch gradient descent to optimize the loss function: “categorical crossentropy” on the training dataset. Please record the loss value for each of the epochs
and create an epoch-loss plot and an accuracy-loss plot for both the training and
validation set.
4. Report the following:
ˆ Final classification accuracy.
ˆ The n-class confusion matrix.
3.2 Task 2: Small Convolutional Neural Network
1. Build a convolutional neural network with the following specifications (Test on two
different tasks):
ˆ Convolution layer having 40 feature detectors, with kernel size 5 x 5, and ReLU
as the activation function, with stride 1 and no-padding.
ˆ A max-pooling layer with pool size 2×2.
ˆ Fully connected layer with 100 neurons, and ReLU as the activation function.
ˆ Output layer: n (depending on the task) neurons representing the n classes, using
the softmax activation function. function for each of the 10 neurons.
2. Using Min-Max scaling to scale the training dataset and using the same Min and Max
values from the training set scale the test dataset ( X−Xmin
Xmax−Xmin
).
3. Using mini-batch gradient descent to optimize the loss function: “categorical crossentropy” on the training dataset. Please record the loss value for each of the epochs
and create an epoch-loss plot and an accuracy-loss plot for both the training and
validation set.
4. Report the following:
ˆ Final classification accuracy.
ˆ The n-class confusion matrix.

3.3 Task 3: Your own Convolutional Neural Network
1. Build another convolutional neural network, where you choose all the parameters to
see if you can get a higher accuracy.
2. Using Min-Max scaling to scale the training dataset and using the same Min and Max
values from the training set scale the test dataset ( X−Xmin
Xmax−Xmin
).
3. Using mini-batch gradient descent to optimize the loss function: “categorical crossentropy” on the training dataset. Please record the loss value for each of the epochs
and create an epoch-loss plot and an accuracy-loss plot for both the training and
validation set.
4. Report the following:
ˆ Final classification accuracy.
ˆ The n-class confusion matrix.
3.4 Task 4: Your own Convolutional Neural Network on both
Tasks Simultaneously
1. Build another convolutional neural network, where you try and classify both tasks with
a single network. After your flatten layer have two more fully connected layers for each
“branch”. Note that in order to do so you will not be able to use the Sequential model.
2. Using Min-Max scaling to scale the training dataset and using the same Min and Max
values from the training set scale the test dataset ( X−Xmin
Xmax−Xmin
).
3. Using mini-batch gradient descent to optimize the loss function: “categorical crossentropy” on the training dataset. Please record the loss value for each of the epochs
and create an epoch-loss plot and an accuracy-loss plot for both the training and
validation set.
4. Report the following:
ˆ Final classification accuracy.
ˆ The n-class confusion matrix.
3.5 Task 5: Variational Auto Encoder (COSC 525 only)
1. Build a variational autoencoder with the following specifications (in this one you have
a little more flexibility):
ˆ Should have at least two convolution layers in the encoder and 2 deconvolution
layers in the decoder.
ˆ Latent dimension should be at least 5.
ˆ Loss should be either MSE or binary cross entropy.

2. Using Min-Max scaling to scale the training dataset and using the same Min and Max
values from the training set scale the test dataset ( X−Xmin
Xmax−Xmin
).
3. Using mini-batch gradient descent to optimize the loss function on the training dataset.
Please record the loss value for each of the epochs and create an epoch-loss plot and
an accuracy-loss plot for both the training and validation set.
4. Qualitatively evaluate your model by generating a set of faces by randomly choosing
10 latent vectors and presenting the resulting images
4 Additional Information
1. In order to create a dataset you will need to read in the csv file and images. Using the
pandas and/or pillow libraries could be useful for those tasks.
2. You may also find the sklearn library useful for doing one-hot encoding and getting
the confusion matrix.
3. Since the dataset is pretty large I recommend only loading the first n rows from the
CVS while debugging. Once you have everything working you can scale up to the full
dataset to get the actual accuracy.
4. It would be useful to organize each task as a function, where the function returns
the correct model. Training can then happen in a similar manner (VAE may be an
exception). This function can take different parameters such as learning rate, learning
rate decay, momentum, to allow you to test different options.
5. In order to draw plots for loss and accuracy for both training and validation data I
recommend using TensorBoard. Take a look here for a tutorial. Here is a link showing
how to use it in a Jupyter Notebook
6. Exact learning parameters are not mentioned. You will need to select your own learning
rate, momentum etc.
7. Please submit a Jupyter Notebook. Submit both the ipynb file in addition to an html
file version. Make sure to show the output for all tasks.
5 Report
Your Jupyter notebook should include all the following (use markup for text portions) :
1. A short introduction to the problem.
2. Introduction to each network (including the ones you designed).
3. Results from each network for the two tasks. This should include the loss plots and
the evaluation criteria.

4. Conclusion – what did you observe when you ran these experiments?
5. How to run your code.
