Pyramid Vision Transformer

This repository contains PyTorch evaluation code, training code and pretrained models for PVT (Pyramid Vision Transformer).

Like ResNet, PVT is a pure transformer backbone that can be easily plugged in most downstream task models.

With a comparable number of parameters, PVT-Small+RetinaNet achieves 40.4 AP on the COCO dataset, surpassing ResNet50+RetinNet (36.3 AP) by 4.1 AP.

This repository is developed on the top of pytorch-image-models and deit.

Before using it, make sure you have the pytorch-image-models package timm==0.3.2 by Ross Wightman installed. Note that our work relies of the augmentations proposed in this library.

Usage

First, clone the repository locally:

git clone https://github.com/whai362/PVT.git

Then, install PyTorch 1.6.0+ and torchvision 0.7.0+ and pytorch-image-models 0.3.2:

conda install -c pytorch pytorch torchvision
pip install timm==0.3.2

Data preparation

Download and extract ImageNet train and val images from http://image-net.org/.
The directory structure is the standard layout for the torchvision datasets.ImageFolder, and the training and validation data is expected to be in the train/ folder and val folder respectively:

/path/to/imagenet/
  train/
    class1/
      img1.jpeg
    class2/
      img2.jpeg
  val/
    class1/
      img3.jpeg
    class/2
      img4.jpeg

Evaluation

To evaluate a pre-trained PVT-Small on ImageNet val with a single GPU run:

sh dist_train.sh pvt_small 1 /path/to/checkpoint_root --data-path /path/to/imagenet --resume /path/to/checkpoint_file --eval

This should give

Todo.

Training

To train PVT-Small on ImageNet on a single node with 8 gpus for 300 epochs run:

sh dist_train.sh pvt_small 8 /path/to/checkpoint_root --data-path /path/to/imagenet
