Keras Custom Layers - Lambda Layer and Custom Class Layer

Here we are back with another interesting Keras tutorial which will teach you about Keras Custom Layers.

A Neural Network is a stack of layers. Each layer receives some input, makes computation on this input and propagates the output to the next layer. Though there are many in-built layers in Keras for different use cases, Keras Layers like Conv2D, MaxPooling2D, Dense, Flatten have different applications and we use them according to our requirements. But sometimes we may want to perform computations other than what these Keras Layers do.

Therefore we have to build our own layer and define our own algorithm for computation on input data. Keras provides this feature to write our own Custom Layers. In this article we will study the concept of Custom Layers and we will see some examples to build our own custom layer.

Keras Tutorial - Ultimate Guide to Deep Learning - DataFlair

Welcome to DataFlair Keras Tutorial. This tutorial will introduce you to everything you need to know to get started with Keras. You will discover the characteristics, features, and various other properties of Keras. This article also explains the different neural network layers and the pre-trained models available in Keras. You will get the idea of how Keras makes it easier to try and experiment with new architectures in neural networks. And how Keras empowers new ideas and its implementation in a faster, efficient way.

Keras Tutorial

Introduction to Keras

Keras is an open-source deep learning framework developed in python. Developers favor Keras because it is user-friendly, modular, and extensible. Keras allows developers for fast experimentation with neural networks.

Keras is a high-level API and uses Tensorflow, Theano, or CNTK as its backend. It provides a very clean and easy way to create deep learning models.

Characteristics of Keras

Keras has the following characteristics:

  • It is simple to use and consistent. Since we describe models in python, it is easy to code, compact, and easy to debug.
  • Keras is based on minimal substructure, it tries to minimize the user actions for common use cases.
  • Keras allows us to use multiple backends, provides GPU support on CUDA, and allows us to train models on multiple GPUs.
  • It offers a consistent API that provides necessary feedback when an error occurs.
  • Using Keras, you can customize the functionalities of your code up to a great extent. Even small customization makes a big change because these functionalities are deeply integrated with the low-level backend.

Benefits of using Keras

The following major benefits of using Keras over other deep learning frameworks are:

  • The simple API structure of Keras is designed for both new developers and experts.
  • The Keras interface is very user friendly and is pretty optimized for general use cases.
  • In Keras, you can write custom blocks to extend it.
  • Keras is the second most popular deep learning framework after TensorFlow.
  • Tensorflow also provides Keras implementation using its tf.keras module. You can access all the functionalities of Keras in TensorFlow using tf.keras.

Keras Installation

Before installing TensorFlow, you should have one of its backends. We prefer you to install Tensorflow. Install Tensorflow and Keras using pip python package installer.

Starting with Keras

The basic data structure of Keras is model, it defines how to organize layers. A simple type of model is the Sequential model, a sequential way of adding layers. For more flexible architecture, Keras provides a Functional API. Functional API allows you to take multiple inputs and produce outputs.

Keras Layers - Parameters and Properties

Layers are the primary unit to create neural networks. We compose a deep learning architecture by adding successive layers. Each successive layer performs some computation on the input it receives. Then after it propagates the output information to the next layer. At last, we get the desired results from the output of the last layer. In this Keras article, we will walk through different types of Keras layers, its properties and its parameters.

Keras Layers

Keras Layers

To define or create a Keras layer, we need the following information:

  • The shape of Input: To understand the structure of input information.
  • Units: To determine the number of nodes/ neurons in the layer.
  • Initializer: To determine the weights for each input to perform computation.
  • Activators: To transform the input in a nonlinear format, such that each neuron can learn better.
  • Constraints: To put restrictions on weights at the time of optimization.
  • Regularizers: To apply a penalty on the parameters during optimization.

Creating Custom Activation Functions with Lambda Layers in TensorFlow 2

Learning to create a simple custom ReLU activation function using lambda layers in TensorFlow 2

Previously we’ve seen how to create custom loss functions — Creating custom Loss functions using TensorFlow 2

Customizing the ReLU function (Source: Image created by author)

Introduction

In this article, we look at how to create custom activation functions. While TensorFlow already contains a bunch of activation functions inbuilt, there are ways to create your own custom activation function or to edit an existing activation function.

ReLU (Rectified Linear Unit) is still the most common activation function used in the hidden layers of any neural network architecture. ReLU can also be represented as a function f(x) where,

f(x) = 0, when x <0,

and, f(x) = x, when x ≥ 0.

Thus the function takes into consideration only the positive part, and is written as,

f(x) = max(0,x)

or in a code representation,

if input > 0:
   return input
else:
   return 0

But this ReLU function is predefined. What if we want to customize this function or create our own ReLU activation. There is a very simple way to do this in TensorFlow — we just have to use Lambda layers.
