MaSS

Momentum-added Stochastic Solver (MaSS): implemented in Tensorflow(Keras)

Introduction

MaSS (Momentum-added Stochastic Solver) is an accelerated stochastic gradient method for training over-parametrized models. The code for the algorithm is in the file optimizers.py

Requirement

Python: >= 3.5.2
Tensorflow: >= 1.8.0
Keras: 2.1.5

Running Experiments

An example experiment: training a ResNet-32 using MaSS to classify the CIFAR-10 images. Run the code:

$ python3 train.py

or (specify CUDA device)

$ CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 python3 train.py

Our experiment achieves on average 92.8% classification accuracy on the test set of CIFAR-10.
