Binary Net Save

experimental binary net implementation in chainer

Project README

binary_net by chainer

This is an experimental code for reproducing [1]'s result using chainer. No optimization is used for binary operations. I just binalize weight and activation at computation, and use a straight through estimator for gradient computation.

  • [1] "BinaryNet: Training Deep Neural Networks with Weights and Activations Constrained to +1 or -1", Matthieu Courbariaux, Yoshua Bengio

Code is almost equivalent to chainer/examples/mnist/ except:

  • Use binary weight, binary activation, batch_normalization (,,
  • Use weight clip, optimizer.add_hook(weight_clip.WeightClip()) (
