This module is designed to include machinelearning models for interpolating energies and forces from either an atomcentered or imagecentered fingerprint description.
Model¶

class
amp.model.
LossFunction
(energy_coefficient=1.0, force_coefficient=0.04, convergence=None, parallel=None, overfit=0.0, raise_ConvergenceOccurred=True, log_losses=True, d=None)[source]¶ Basic loss function, which can be used by the model.get_loss method which is required in standard model classes.
This version is pure python and thus will be slow compared to a fortran/parallel implementation.
If parallel is None, it will pull it from the model itself. Only use this keyword to override the model’s specification.
Also has parallelization methods built in.
See self.default_parameters for the default values of parameters specified as None.
Parameters:  energy_coefficient (float) – Coefficient of the energy contribution in the loss function.
 force_coefficient (float) – Coefficient of the force contribution in the loss function. Can set to None as shortcut to turn off force training.
 convergence (dict) – Dictionary of keys and values defining convergence. Keys are ‘energy_rmse’, ‘energy_maxresid’, ‘force_rmse’, and ‘force_maxresid’. If ‘force_rmse’ and ‘force_maxresid’ are both set to None, force training is turned off and force_coefficient is set to None.
 parallel (dict) – Parallel configuration dictionary. Will pull from model itself if not specified.
 overfit (float) – Multiplier of the weights norm penalty term in the loss function.
 raise_ConvergenceOccurred (bool) – If True will raise convergence notice.
 log_losses (bool) – If True will log the loss function value in the log file else will not.
 d (None or float) – If d is None, both loss function and its gradient are calculated analytically. If d is a float, then gradient of the loss function is calculated by perturbing each parameter plus/minus d.

attach_model

 fingerprints (dict) – Dictionary with images hashs as keys and the corresponding fingerprints as values.
 fingerprintprimes (dict) – Dictionary with images hashs as keys and the corresponding fingerprint derivatives as values.
 images (list or str) – List of ASE atoms objects with positions, symbols, energies, and forces in ASE format. This is the training set of data. This can also be the path to an ASE trajectory (.traj) or database (.db) file. Energies can be obtained from any reference, e.g. DFT calculations.

calculate_loss
(parametervector, lossprime)[source]¶ Method that calculates the loss, derivative of the loss with respect to parameters (if requested), and max_residual.
Parameters:  parametervector (list) – Parameters of the regression model in the form of a list.

check_convergence
(loss, energy_loss, force_loss, energy_maxresid, force_maxresid)[source]¶ Check convergence
Checks to see whether convergence is met; if it is, raises ConvergenceException to stop the optimizer.
Parameters:

default_parameters
= {'convergence': {'energy_rmse': 0.001, 'force_rmse': None, 'energy_maxresid': None, 'force_maxresid': None}}¶

get_loss

NeuralNetwork
(hiddenlayers=(5, 5), activation='tanh', weights=None, scalings=None, fprange=None, regressor=None, mode=None, lossfunction=None, version=None, fortran=True, checkpoints=100)[source]¶ Bases:
amp.model.Model
Class that implements a basic feedforward neural network.
Parameters:  hiddenlayers (dict) –
Dictionary of chemical element symbols and architectures of their corresponding hidden layers of the conventional neural network. Number of nodes of last layer is always one corresponding to energy. However, number of nodes of first layer is equal to three times number of atoms in the system in the case of no descriptor, and is equal to length of symmetry functions of the descriptor. Can be fed using tuples as:
>>> hiddenlayers = (3, 2,)
for example, in which a neural network with two hidden layers, the first one having three nodes and the second one having two nodes is assigned (to the whole atomic system in the no descriptor case, and to each chemical element in the atomcentered mode). When setting only one hidden layer, the dictionary can be fed as:
>>> hiddenlayers = (3,)
In the atomcentered mode, neural network for each species can be assigned seperately, as:
>>> hiddenlayers = {"O":(3,5), "Au":(5,6)}
for example.
 activation (str) – Assigns the type of activation funtion. “linear” refers to linear function, “tanh” refers to tanh function, and “sigmoid” refers to sigmoid function.
 weights (dict) – In the case of no descriptor, keys correspond to layers and values are two dimensional arrays of network weight. In the atomcentered mode, keys correspond to chemical elements and values are dictionaries with layer keys and network weight two dimensional arrays as values. Arrays are set up to connect node i in the previous layer with node j in the current layer with indices w[i,j]. The last value for index i corresponds to bias. If weights is not given, arrays will be randomly generated.
 scalings (dict) – In the case of no descriptor, keys are “intercept” and “slope” and values are real numbers. In the fingerprinting scheme, keys correspond to chemical elements and values are dictionaries with “intercept” and “slope” keys and real number values. If scalings is not given, it will be randomly generated.
 fprange (dict) –
Range of fingerprints of each chemical species. Should be fed as a dictionary of chemical species and a list of minimum and maximun, e.g.:
>>> fprange={"Pd": [0.31, 0.59], "O":[0.56, 0.72]}
 regressor (object) – Regressor object for finding best fit model parameters, e.g. by loss function optimization via amp.regression.Regressor.
 mode (str) – Can be either ‘atomcentered’ or ‘imagecentered’.
 lossfunction (object) – Loss function object, if at all desired by the user.
 version (object) – Version of this class.
 fortran (bool) – If True, allows for extrapolation, if False, does not allow.
 checkpoints (int) – Frequency with which to save parameter checkpoints upon training. E.g., 100 saves a checkpoint on each 100th training setp. Specify None for no checkpoints. Note: You can make this negative to not overwrite previous checkpoints.
:param .. note:: Dimensions of weight two dimensional arrays should be consistent: with hiddenlayers.

Tensorflow Neural Network¶
A work in progress, this module amp.model.tflow uses Google’s TensorFlow package to implement a neural network, which may provide GPU acceleration and other advantages.

class
amp.model.tflow.
NeuralNetwork
(hiddenlayers=(5, 5), activation='tanh', keep_prob=1.0, maxTrainingEpochs=10000, importname=None, batchsize=2, initialTrainingRate=0.0001, miniBatch=False, tfVars=None, saveVariableName=None, parameters=None, sess=None, energy_coefficient=1.0, force_coefficient=0.04, scikit_model=None, convergenceCriteria=None, optimizationMethod='lBFGSb', input_keep_prob=0.8, ADAM_optimizer_params={'beta1': 0.9}, regularization_strength=None, numTrainingImages={}, elementFingerprintLengths=None, fprange=None, weights=None, scalings=None, unit_type='float', preLoadTrainingData=True, relativeForceCutoff=None)[source]¶ TensorFlowbased Neural Network model.
Uses Google’s machinelearning code to construct a neural network. This method also allows for GPU acceleration.
Parameters:  hiddenlayers – Structure of the neural network. Can either be in the format (int,int,int), where each element represnts the size of a layer and there and the length of the list is the number of layers, or dictionary format of the network structure for each element type. E.g. {‘Cu’: (5, 5), ‘O’: (10, 5)}
 activation – Activation type. (XXX Provide list of possibilities.)
 keep_prob (float) – Dropout rate for the neural network to reduce overfitting. (keep_prob=1. uses all nodes, keep_prob~0.50.8 better for training)
 maxTrainingEpochs (int) – Maximum number of times to loop through the training data before giving up.
 batchsize (int) – Batch size for minibatch (if miniBatch is set to True).
 initialTrainingRate – Initial training rate for SGD optimizers like ADAM. See the TF documentation for choose this value. Likely between 1e2 and 1e5, depending on use case, whether minibatch is on, etc.
 miniBatch (bool) – Whether to use minibatches in training.
 tfVars – Tensorflow variables (used if restoring from a previous save).
 saveVariableName (str) – Name used for the internal tensorflow variable naming scheme. If variables have the same name as another model in the same tensorflow session, there will be collisions.
 parameters – Dictionary of parameters to be used in initialization. Mostly these are the same keywords as the keyword arguments in this function. This is primarily used to make saving/loading easier.
 sess – tensorflow session to use (None means start a new session)
 maxAtomsForces (int) – Number of atoms to be used in the force training. It sets the upper bound on the number of atoms that can be used to calculate the force for. E.g., if maxAtomsForces=40, then forces can only be calculated for images with less than 40 atoms.
 energy_coefficient (float) – Used to adjust the loss function; this is the weight applied to the energy component.
 force_coefficient (float or None) – Used to adjust the loss function; this is the weight applied to the force component. Note you can turn off force training by setting this to None.
 convergenceCriteria (dict) – Dictionary of convergence criteria, analagous to the main AMP convergence criteria dictionary.
 optimizationMethod (string) – Set the optimization method for the NN parameters. Currently either ‘ADAM’ for the ADAM optimizer in tensorflow, of ‘lBFGSb’ for the deterministic lBFGSb method. ADAM is usually faster per training step, has all of the benefits of being a stochastic optimizer, and allows for minibatch operation, but has more tunable parameters and can be harder to get working well. lBFGSb usually works for small/moderate network sizes.
 input_keep_prob – Dropout ratio on the first layer (from fingerprints to the neural network. Rule of thumb is this should be 0 to 0.2. Only applies when using a SGD optimizer like ADAM. BFGS ignores this.
 ADAM_optimizer_params – Dictionary of parameters to pass to the ADAM optimizer. See https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r0.11/api_docs/python/ train.html#AdamOptimizer for documentation
 regularization_strength – Weight for L2regularization in the cost function
 fprange (dict) – This is a dictionary that contains the minimum and maximum values seen for each fingerprint of each element. These
 weights (np array) – Input that allows the NN weights (and biases) to be set directly. This is only used for verifying that the calculation is working correctly in the CuOPd test case. In general, don’t use this except for testing the code. This argument is analagous to the original AMP NeuralNetwork module.
 scalings – Input that allows the NN final scaling o be set directly. This is only used for verifying that the calculation is working correctly in the CuOPd test case. In general, don’t use this except for testing the code. This argument is analagous to the original AMP NeuralNetwork module.
 unit_type (string) – Sets the internal datatype of the tensorflow model. Either “float” for 32bit FP precision, or “double” for 64bit FP precision.
 preLoadTrainingData (bool) – Decides whether to run the training by preloading all training data into tensorflow. Doing so results in faster training if the entire dataset can fit into memory. This only works when not using minibatch.
 relativeForceCutoff (float) – Parameter for controlling whether the force contribution to the trained cost function is absolute (just differences of force compared to training forces) or relative for large values of the force. This basically sets the upper limit on the forces that should be fitted (e.g. if the force is >A, then the force is scaled). This helps when a small number of images have very large forces that don’t need to be reconstructed perfectly.

calculate_energy
(fingerprint)[source]¶ Get the energy by feeding in a list to the get_list version (which is more efficient for anything greater than 1 image).

constructModel

constructSessGraphModel
(tfVars, sess, trainOnly=False, numElements=None, numTrainingImages=None, num_dgdx_Eindices=None, numTrainingAtoms=None)[source]¶

fit
(trainingimages, descriptor, parallel, log=None)[source]¶ Fit takes a bunch of training images (which are assumed to have a working calculator attached), and fits the internal variables to the training images.

generateBatch
(curinds, elements, atomArraysAll, nAtomsDict, atomsIndsReverse, dgdx, dgdx_Eindices, dgdx_Xindices)[source]¶ This method generates batches from a large dataset using a set of selected indices curinds.

amp.model.tflow.
generateTensorFlowArrays
(fingerprintDB, elements, keylist, fingerprintDerDB=None)[source]¶ This function generates the inputs to the tensorflow graph for the selected images. The essential problem is that each neural network is associated with a specific element type. Thus, atoms in each ASE image need to be sent to different networks.

elements: a list of element types (e.g. ‘C’,’O’, etc)
 keylist: a list of hashs into the fingerprintDB that we want to create
 inputs for

 network

 atoms of each type in each image

 the original keylist
