Quantum transfer learning

In this tutorial we apply a machine learning method, known as transfer learning, to an image classifier based on a hybrid classical-quantum network.

This example follows the general structure of the PyTorch tutorial on transfer learning by Sasank Chilamkurthy, with the crucial difference of using a quantum circuit to perform the final classification task.

More details on this topic can be found in the research paper [1] (Mari et al. (2019)).

Introduction

Transfer learning is a well-established technique for training artificial neural networks (see e.g., Ref. [2]), which is based on the general intuition that if a pre-trained network is good at solving a given problem, then, with just a bit of additional training, it can be used to also solve a different but related problem.

As discussed in Ref. [1], this idea can be formalized in terms of two abstract netwoks \(A\) and \(B\), independently from their quantum or classical physical nature.


transfer_general

As sketched in the above figure, one can give the following general definition of the transfer learning method:

  1. Take a network \(A\) that has been pre-trained on a dataset \(D_A\) and for a given task \(T_A\).
  2. Remove some of the final layers. In this way, the resulting truncated network \(A'\) can be used as a feature extractor.
  3. Connect a new trainable network \(B\) at the end of the pre-trained network \(A'\).
  4. Keep the weights of \(A'\) constant, and train the final block \(B\) with a new dataset \(D_B\) and/or for a new task of interest \(T_B\).

When dealing with hybrid systems, depending on the physical nature (classical or quantum) of the networks \(A\) and \(B\), one can have different implementations of transfer learning as

summarized in following table:


Network A Network B Tansfer learning scheme
Classical Classical CC - Standard classical method. See e.g., Ref. [2].
Classical Quantum CQ - Hybrid model presented in this tutorial.
Quantum Classical QC - Model studied in Ref. [1].
Quantum Quantum QQ - Model studied in Ref. [1].

Classical-to-quantum transfer learning

We focus on the CQ transfer learning scheme discussed in the previous section and we give a specific example.

  1. As pre-trained network \(A\) we use ResNet18, a deep residual neural network introduced by Microsoft in Ref. [3], which is pre-trained on the ImageNet dataset.
  2. After removing its final layer we obtain \(A'\), a pre-processing block which maps any input high-resolution image into 512 abstract features.
  3. Such features are classified by a 4-qubit “dressed quantum circuit” \(B\), i.e., a variational quantum circuit sandwiched between two classical layers.
  4. The hybrid model is trained, keeping \(A'\) constant, on the Hymenoptera dataset (a small subclass of ImageNet) containing images of ants and bees.

A graphical representation of the full data processing pipeline is given in the figure below.

General setup

Note

To use the PyTorch interface in PennyLane, you must first install PyTorch.

In addition to PennyLane, we will also need some standard PyTorch libraries and the plotting library matplotlib.

os.environ["OMP_NUM_THREADS"] = "1"

Setting of the main hyper-parameters of the model

Note

To reproduce the results of Ref. [1], num_epochs should be set to 30 which may take a long time. We suggest to first try with num_epochs=1 and, if everything runs smoothly, increase it to a larger value.

n_qubits = 4                # Number of qubits
step = 0.0004               # Learning rate
batch_size = 4              # Number of samples for each training step
num_epochs = 1              # Number of training epochs
q_depth = 6                 # Depth of the quantum circuit (number of variational layers)
gamma_lr_scheduler = 0.1    # Learning rate reduction applied every 10 epochs.
q_delta = 0.01              # Initial spread of random quantum weights
rng_seed = 0                # Seed for random number generator
start_time = time.time()    # Start of the computation timer

We initialize a PennyLane device with a default.qubit backend.

dev = qml.device("default.qubit", wires=n_qubits)

We configure PyTorch to use CUDA only if available. Otherwise the CPU is used.

device = torch.device("cuda:0" if torch.cuda.is_available() else "cpu")

Dataset loading

Note

The dataset containing images of ants and bees can be downloaded here and should be extracted in the subfolder ../_data/hymenoptera_data.

This is a very small dataset (roughly 250 images), too small for training from scratch a classical or quantum model, however it is enough when using transfer learning approach.

The PyTorch packages torchvision and torch.utils.data are used for loading the dataset and performing standard preliminary image operations: resize, center, crop, normalize, etc.

data_transforms = {
    "train": transforms.Compose(
        [
            # transforms.RandomResizedCrop(224),     # uncomment for data augmentation
            # transforms.RandomHorizontalFlip(),     # uncomment for data augmentation
            transforms.Resize(256),
            transforms.CenterCrop(224),
            transforms.ToTensor(),
            # Normalize input channels using mean values and standard deviations of ImageNet.
            transforms.Normalize([0.485, 0.456, 0.406], [0.229, 0.224, 0.225]),
        ]
    ),
    "val": transforms.Compose(
        [
            transforms.Resize(256),
            transforms.CenterCrop(224),
            transforms.ToTensor(),
            transforms.Normalize([0.485, 0.456, 0.406], [0.229, 0.224, 0.225]),
        ]
    ),
}

data_dir = "../_data/hymenoptera_data"
image_datasets = {
    x: datasets.ImageFolder(os.path.join(data_dir, x), data_transforms[x]) for x in ["train", "val"]
}
dataset_sizes = {x: len(image_datasets[x]) for x in ["train", "val"]}
class_names = image_datasets["train"].classes

# Initialize dataloader
dataloaders = {
    x: torch.utils.data.DataLoader(image_datasets[x], batch_size=batch_size, shuffle=True)
    for x in ["train", "val"]
}

# function to plot images
def imshow(inp, title=None):
    """Display image from tensor."""
    inp = inp.numpy().transpose((1, 2, 0))
    # Inverse of the initial normalization operation.
    mean = np.array([0.485, 0.456, 0.406])
    std = np.array([0.229, 0.224, 0.225])
    inp = std * inp + mean
    inp = np.clip(inp, 0, 1)
    plt.imshow(inp)
    if title is not None:
        plt.title(title)

Let us show a batch of the test data, just to have an idea of the classification problem.

# Get a batch of training data
inputs, classes = next(iter(dataloaders["val"]))

# Make a grid from batch
out = torchvision.utils.make_grid(inputs)

imshow(out, title=[class_names[x] for x in classes])

# In order to get reproducible results, we set a manual seed for the
# random number generator and re-initialize the dataloaders.

torch.manual_seed(rng_seed)
dataloaders = {
    x: torch.utils.data.DataLoader(image_datasets[x], batch_size=batch_size, shuffle=True)
    for x in ["train", "val"]
}

Variational quantum circuit

We first define some quantum layers that will compose the quantum circuit.

def H_layer(nqubits):
    """Layer of single-qubit Hadamard gates.
    """
    for idx in range(nqubits):
        qml.Hadamard(wires=idx)


def RY_layer(w):
    """Layer of parametrized qubit rotations around the y axis.
    """
    for idx, element in enumerate(w):
        qml.RY(element, wires=idx)


def entangling_layer(nqubits):
    """Layer of CNOTs followed by another shifted layer of CNOT.
    """
    # In other words it should apply something like :
    # CNOT  CNOT  CNOT  CNOT...  CNOT
    #   CNOT  CNOT  CNOT...  CNOT
    for i in range(0, nqubits - 1, 2):  # Loop over even indices: i=0,2,...N-2
        qml.CNOT(wires=[i, i + 1])
    for i in range(1, nqubits - 1, 2):  # Loop over odd indices:  i=1,3,...N-3
        qml.CNOT(wires=[i, i + 1])

Now we define the quantum circuit through the PennyLane qnode decorator .

The structure is that of a typical variational quantum circuit:

  • Embedding layer: All qubits are first initialized in a balanced superposition of up and down states, then they are rotated according to the input parameters (local embedding).
  • Variational layers: A sequence of trainable rotation layers and constant entangling layers is applied.
  • Measurement layer: For each qubit, the local expectation value of the \(Z\) operator is measured. This produces a classical output vector, suitable for additional post-processing.
@qml.qnode(dev, interface="torch")
def q_net(q_in, q_weights_flat):

    # Reshape weights
    q_weights = q_weights_flat.reshape(q_depth, n_qubits)

    # Start from state |+> , unbiased w.r.t. |0> and |1>
    H_layer(n_qubits)

    # Embed features in the quantum node
    RY_layer(q_in)

    # Sequence of trainable variational layers
    for k in range(q_depth):
        entangling_layer(n_qubits)
        RY_layer(q_weights[k])

    # Expectation values in the Z basis
    exp_vals = [qml.expval(qml.PauliZ(position)) for position in range(n_qubits)]
    return tuple(exp_vals)

Dressed quantum circuit

We can now define a custom torch.nn.Module representing a dressed quantum circuit.

This is a concatenation of:

  • A classical pre-processing layer (nn.Linear).
  • A classical activation function (torch.tanh).
  • A constant np.pi/2.0 scaling.
  • The previously defined quantum circuit (q_net).
  • A classical post-processing layer (nn.Linear).

The input of the module is a batch of vectors with 512 real parameters (features) and the output is a batch of vectors with two real outputs (associated with the two classes of images: ants and bees).

class Quantumnet(nn.Module):
    def __init__(self):
        super().__init__()
        self.pre_net = nn.Linear(512, n_qubits)
        self.q_params = nn.Parameter(q_delta * torch.randn(q_depth * n_qubits))
        self.post_net = nn.Linear(n_qubits, 2)

    def forward(self, input_features):
        pre_out = self.pre_net(input_features)
        q_in = torch.tanh(pre_out) * np.pi / 2.0

        # Apply the quantum circuit to each element of the batch and append to q_out
        q_out = torch.Tensor(0, n_qubits)
        q_out = q_out.to(device)
        for elem in q_in:
            q_out_elem = q_net(elem, self.q_params).float().unsqueeze(0)
            q_out = torch.cat((q_out, q_out_elem))
        return self.post_net(q_out)

Hybrid classical-quantum model

We are finally ready to build our full hybrid classical-quantum network. We follow the transfer learning approach:

  1. First load the classical pre-trained network ResNet18 from the torchvision.models zoo.
  2. Freeze all the weights since they should not be trained.
  3. Replace the last fully connected layer with our trainable dressed quantum circuit (Quantumnet).

Note

The ResNet18 model is automatically downloaded by PyTorch and it may take several minutes (only the first time).

model_hybrid = torchvision.models.resnet18(pretrained=True)

for param in model_hybrid.parameters():
    param.requires_grad = False


# Notice that model_hybrid.fc is the last layer of ResNet18
model_hybrid.fc = Quantumnet()

# Use CUDA or CPU according to the "device" object.
model_hybrid = model_hybrid.to(device)

Training and results

Before training the network we need to specify the loss function.

We use, as usual in classification problem, the cross-entropy which is directly available within torch.nn.

criterion = nn.CrossEntropyLoss()

We also initialize the Adam optimizer which is called at each training step in order to update the weights of the model.

optimizer_hybrid = optim.Adam(model_hybrid.fc.parameters(), lr=step)

We schedule to reduce the learning rate by a factor of gamma_lr_scheduler every 10 epochs.

exp_lr_scheduler = lr_scheduler.StepLR(optimizer_hybrid, step_size=10, gamma=gamma_lr_scheduler)

What follows is a training function that will be called later. This function should return a trained model that can be used to make predictions (classifications).

def train_model(model, criterion, optimizer, scheduler, num_epochs):
    since = time.time()
    best_model_wts = copy.deepcopy(model.state_dict())
    best_acc = 0.0
    best_loss = 10000.0  # Large arbitrary number
    best_acc_train = 0.0
    best_loss_train = 10000.0  # Large arbitrary number
    print("Training started:")

    for epoch in range(num_epochs):

        # Each epoch has a training and validation phase
        for phase in ["train", "val"]:
            if phase == "train":
                scheduler.step()
                # Set model to training mode
                model.train()
            else:
                # Set model to evaluate mode
                model.eval()
            running_loss = 0.0
            running_corrects = 0

            # Iterate over data.

                inputs = inputs.to(device)
                labels = labels.to(device)
                optimizer.zero_grad()

                with torch.set_grad_enabled(phase == "train"):
                    outputs = model(inputs)
                    _, preds = torch.max(outputs, 1)

Visualizing the model predictions

We first define a visualization function for a batch of test data.

def visualize_model(model, num_images=6, fig_name="Predictions"):
    images_so_far = 0
    _fig = plt.figure(fig_name)
    model.eval()
    with torch.no_grad():
        for _i, (inputs, labels) in enumerate(dataloaders["val"]):
            inputs = inputs.to(device)
            labels = labels.to(device)
            outputs = model(inputs)
            _, preds = torch.max(outputs, 1)
            for j in range(inputs.size()[0]):
                images_so_far += 1
                ax = plt.subplot(num_images // 2, 2, images_so_far)
                ax.axis("off")
                ax.set_title("[{}]".format(class_names[preds[j]]))
                imshow(inputs.cpu().data[j])
                if images_so_far == num_images:
                    return

Finally, we can run the previous function to see a batch of images with the corresponding predictions.

visualize_model(model_hybrid, num_images=batch_size)
plt.show()
