ofa_model() to get an OFA model.
This method finds all the
nn.BatchNorm2d modules, then replaces those modules with
A list of pruning ratio is required to specify what the OFA model will be.
For each convolution layer in the OFA model, an arbitrary pruning ratio can be used in the output channel. The maximum and minimum values in this list represent the maximum and minimum compression rates of the model. Other values in the list represent the subnetworks to be optimized. By default, the pruning ratio is set to [0.5, 0.75, 1].
For a subnetwork sampled from the OFA model, the out channels of a convolution layer is one of the numbers in the pruning ratio list multiplied by its original number. For example, for a pruning ratio list of [0.5, 0.75, 1] and a convolution layer nn.Conv2d(16, 32, 5), the out channels of this layer in a sampled subnetwork is one of [0.5*32, 0.75*32, 1*32].
Because the first and last layers have a significant impact on network
performance, they are commonly excluded from pruning. By default, this method
automatically identifies the first convolution and the last convolution, then puts them
into the list of excludes. Setting
equals False can cancel this feature.
