ImageClassificationRunner
(summary_dir, data, network, activation_fn)[source]¶ A highlevel API for users to generate and store results of the explanation methods and the evaluation methods.
Update in 2020.11: Adjust the storage structure and format of the data. Summary files generated by previous version will be deprecated and will not be supported in MindInsight of current version.
 Parameters
summary_dir (str) – The directory path to save the summary files which store the generated results.
data (tuple[Dataset, list[str]]) – Tuple of dataset and the corresponding class label list. The dataset should provides [images], [images, labels] or [images, labels, bboxes] as columns. The label list must share the exact same length and order of the network outputs.
network (Cell) – The network(with logit outputs) to be explained.
activation_fn (Cell) – The activation layer that transforms logits to prediction probabilities. For single label classification tasks, nn.Softmax is usually applied. As for multilabel classification tasks, nn.Sigmoid is usually be applied. Users can also pass their own customized activation_fn as long as when combining this function with network, the final output is the probability of the input.

Gradient
(network)[source]¶ Provides Gradient explanation method.
Gradient is the simplest attribution method which uses the naive gradients of outputs w.r.t inputs as the explanation.
\[attribution = \frac{\partial{y}}{\partial{x}}\]Note
The parsed network will be set to eval mode through network.set_grad(False) and network.set_train(False). If you want to train the network afterwards, please reset it back to training mode through the opposite operations.
 Parameters
network (Cell) – The blackbox model to be explained.
 Inputs:
inputs (Tensor)  The input data to be explained, a 4D tensor of shape \((N, C, H, W)\).
targets (Tensor, int)  The label of interest. It should be a 1D or 0D tensor, or an integer. If it is a 1D tensor, its length should be the same as inputs.
 Outputs:
Tensor, a 4D tensor of shape \((N, 1, H, W)\).
Examples
>>> import numpy as np >>> import mindspore as ms >>> from mindspore.explainer.explanation import Gradient >>> from mindspore.train.serialization import load_checkpoint, load_param_into_net >>> # init Gradient with a trained network >>> net = resnet50(10) # please refer to model_zoo >>> param_dict = load_checkpoint("resnet50.ckpt") >>> load_param_into_net(net, param_dict) >>> gradient = Gradient(net) >>> inputs = ms.Tensor(np.random.rand(1, 3, 224, 224), ms.float32) >>> label = 5 >>> saliency = gradient(inputs, label)

class
mindspore.explainer.explanation.
Deconvolution
(network)[source]¶ Deconvolution explanation.
Deconvolution method is a modified version of Gradient method. For the original ReLU operation in the network to be explained, Deconvolution modifies the propagation rule from directly backpropagating gradients to backprpagating positive gradients.
Note
The parsed network will be set to eval mode through network.set_grad(False) and network.set_train(False). If you want to train the network afterwards, please reset it back to training mode through the opposite operations. To use Deconvolution, the ReLU operations in the network must be implemented with mindspore.nn.Cell object rather than mindspore.ops.Operations.ReLU. Otherwise, the results will not be correct.
 Parameters
network (Cell) – The blackbox model to be explained.
 Inputs:
inputs (Tensor)  The input data to be explained, a 4D tensor of shape \((N, C, H, W)\).
targets (Tensor, int)  The label of interest. It should be a 1D or 0D tensor, or an integer. If it is a 1D tensor, its length should be the same as inputs.

Note
The parsed network will be set to eval mode through network.set_grad(False) and network.set_train(False). If you want to train the network afterwards, please reset it back to training mode through the opposite operations. To use GuidedBackprop, the ReLU operations in the network must be implemented with mindspore.nn.Cell object rather than mindspore.ops.Operations.ReLU. Otherwise, the results will not be correct.

Occlusion
(network, activation_fn, perturbation_per_eval=32)[source]¶ Occlusion uses a sliding window to replace the pixels with a reference value (e.g. constant value), and computes the output difference w.r.t the original output. The output difference caused by perturbed pixels are assigned as feature importance to those pixels. For pixels involved in multiple sliding windows, the feature importance is the averaged differences from multiple sliding windows.

RISE
(network, activation_fn, perturbation_per_eval=32)[source]¶ RISE: Randomized Input Sampling for Explanation of Blackbox Model.
RISE is a perturbationbased method that generates attribution maps by sampling on multiple random binary masks. The original image is randomly masked, and then fed into the blackbox model to get predictions. The final attribution map is the weighted sum of these random masks, with the weights being the corresponding output on the node of interest:
\[attribution = \sum_{i}f_c(I\odot M_i) M_i\]For more details, please refer to the original paper via: RISE.
 Parameters

activation_fn (Cell) – The activation layer that transforms logits to prediction probabilities. For single label classification tasks, nn.Softmax is usually applied. As for multilabel classification tasks, nn.Sigmoid is usually be applied.

 Inputs:
inputs (Tensor)  The input data to be explained, a 4D tensor of shape \((N, C, H, W)\).

ClassSensitivity
[source]¶ Class sensitivity metric used to evaluate attributionbased explanations.
Reasonable atrributionbased explainers are expected to generate distinct saliency maps for different labels, especially for labels of highest confidence and low confidence. ClassSensitivity evaluates the explainer through computing the correlation between saliency maps of highestconfidence and lowestconfidence labels. Explainer with better class sensitivity will receive lower correlation score. To make the evaluation results intuitive, the returned score will take negative on correlation and normalize.

evaluate
(explainer, inputs)[source]¶ Evaluate class sensitivity on a single data sample.
 Parameters
explainer (Explanation) – The explainer to be evaluated, see mindspore.explainer.explanation.
inputs (Tensor) – A data sample, a 4D tensor of shape \((N, C, H, W)\).
 Returns
numpy.ndarray, 1D array of shape \((N,)\), result of class sensitivity evaluated on explainer.

Faithfulness
(num_labels, activation_fn, metric='NaiveFaithfulness')[source]¶ Provides evaluation on faithfulness on XAI explanations.
Three specific metrics to obtain quantified results are supported: “NaiveFaithfulness”, “DeletionAUC”, and “InsertionAUC”.
For metric “NaiveFaithfulness”, a series of perturbed images are created by modifying pixels on original image. Then the perturbed images will be fed to the model and a series of output probability drops can be obtained. The faithfulness is then quantified as the correlation between the propability drops and the saliency map values on the same pixels (we normalize the correlation further to make them in range of [0, 1]).
For metric “DeletionAUC”, a series of perturbed images are created by accumulatively modifying pixels of the original image to a base value (e.g. a constant). The perturbation starts from pixels with high saliency values to pixels with low saliency values. Feeding the perturbed images into the model in order, an output probability drop curve can be obtained. “DeletionAUC” is then obtained as the area under this probability drop curve.
For metric “InsertionAUC”, a series of perturbed images are created by accumulatively inserting pixels of the original image to a reference image (e.g. a black image). The insertion starts from pixels with high saliency values to pixels with low saliency values. Feeding the perturbed images into the model in order, an output probability increase curve can be obtained. “InsertionAUC” is then obtained as the area under this curve.
For all the three metrics, higher value indicates better faithfulness.
 Parameters
num_labels (int) – Number of labels.
activation_fn (Cell) – The activation layer that transforms logits to prediction probabilities. For single label classification tasks, nn.Softmax is usually applied. As for multilabel classification tasks, nn.Sigmoid is usually be applied. Users can also pass their own customized activation_fn as long as when combining this function with network, the final output is the probability of the input.
metric (str, optional) – The specifi metric to quantify faithfulness. Options: “DeletionAUC”, “InsertionAUC”, “NaiveFaithfulness”. Default: ‘NaiveFaithfulness’.
Examples
>>> from mindspore import nn >>> from mindspore.explainer.benchmark import Faithfulness >>> # init a `Faithfulness` object >>> num_labels = 10 >>> metric = "InsertionAUC" >>> activation_fn = nn.Softmax() >>> faithfulness = Faithfulness(num_labels, activation_fn, metric)

class
mindspore.explainer.benchmark.
Localization
(num_labels, metric='PointingGame')[source]¶ Provides evaluation on the localization capability of XAI methods.
Three specific metrics to obtain quantified results are supported: “PointingGame”, and “IoSR” (Intersection over Salient Region).
For metric “PointingGame”, the localization capability is calculated as the ratio of data in which the max position of their saliency maps lies within the bounding boxes. Specifically, for a single datum, given the saliency map and its bounding box, if the max point of its saliency map lies within the bounding box, the evaluation result is 1 otherwise 0.
For metric “IoSR” (Intersection over Salient Region), the localization capability is calculated as the intersection of the bounding box and the salient region over the area of the salient region. The salient region is defined as the region whose value exceeds \(\theta * \max{saliency}\).
