How to implement transfer learning in PyTorch?

In PyTorch, implementing transfer learning can typically be accomplished through the following steps:

  1. Load a pre-trained model: Begin by loading a model that has been pre-trained on a large-scale data set, such as ResNet or VGG trained on ImageNet.
  2. Modify the model architecture: Adjust the last few layers of the pre-trained model to meet the output requirements of the new task based on the specific task at hand.
  3. Freeze the model weights: Lock the weights of the pre-trained model so that they will not be updated during the training process.
  4. Define a new loss function based on the requirements of the new task.
  5. Training the model: Train the modified model using a new dataset, updating only the weights of the newly added layers.
  6. Fine-tune the model: To further improve the model’s performance, you can unfreeze some of the pre-trained model weights and continue training the entire model.

Here is a simple example code to demonstrate how to implement transfer learning in PyTorch.

import torch
import torch.nn as nn
import torchvision.models as models
import torchvision.transforms as transforms
import torch.optim as optim
import as data
from torchvision.datasets import ImageFolder

# 加载预训练模型
pretrained_model = models.resnet18(pretrained=True)

# 修改模型结构
num_ftrs = pretrained_model.fc.in_features
pretrained_model.fc = nn.Linear(num_ftrs, 2)  # 假设新任务是一个二分类问题

# 冻结模型权重
for param in pretrained_model.parameters():
    param.requires_grad = False

# 加载数据
transform = transforms.Compose([
train_dataset = ImageFolder('path_to_train_data', transform=transform)
train_loader = data.DataLoader(train_dataset, batch_size=32, shuffle=True)

# 定义损失函数和优化器
criterion = nn.CrossEntropyLoss()
optimizer = optim.SGD(pretrained_model.fc.parameters(), lr=0.001)

# 训练模型
for epoch in range(10):
    for inputs, labels in train_loader:
        outputs = pretrained_model(inputs)
        loss = criterion(outputs, labels)

# 保存模型, 'pretrained_model.pth')

This is a simple example of transfer learning that can be adjusted and optimized based on specific circumstances in practice.
