Visualization Tool - Week 03

Jeffin Sam, 21 June 2020

Hi, Welcome to the blog for the third week :)

This was one of the toughest week for me since the start of the GSoC program, Since I had to debug some cmake and protobuf issue. After numerous downloads and install of protobuf library, I was finally able to debug it. And hence catch testing has been finally setup up. Now I can focus on writing tests over the next week. Thanks to and for the help :).

Also, Support for logging of the image was added in a new PR#6. So both of the goals were accomplished which were set during the previous blog.

If you want to try the new Image Logging API for arma::mat , you can use the following snippet of code.

Note : Please download the csv from here

#include <mlboard/mlboard.hpp>
#include <iostream>
#include <chrono>
#include <ctime>
#include <future>
using namespace std;
using namespace mlboard;
using namespace arma;
using namespace mlpack;
int main()
std::chrono::time_point<std::chrono::system_clock> start, end;
start = std::chrono::system_clock::now();
FileWriter f1("jeffin");
mat tempDataset;
data::Load("train.csv", tempDataset, true);
// Specify the height width and channel.
data::ImageInfo info(28, 28, 1, 90);
arma::Mat<unsigned char> dataset = conv_to< arma::Mat<unsigned char> >::from(tempDataset.submat(1, 1,
tempDataset.n_rows - 1, 50));
"Multiple Image", 1, dataset , info, f1, "Sample DIGITS Image",
"This is a Sample image logged using mlboard ");
end = std::chrono::system_clock::now();
std::chrono::duration<double> elapsed_seconds = end - start;
std::time_t end_time = std::chrono::system_clock::to_time_t(end);
std::cout << "finished computation at " << std::ctime(&end_time)
<< "elapsed time: " << elapsed_seconds.count() << "s\n";

The outuput would be

finished computation at Sun Jun 21 20:42:49 2020
elapsed time: 4.10645s

It took around 4 sec to log 50 Images, and IMO that is really good. Also, To log 42000 images it took 67.6837s.

The ouput would be similar to

Next week is the final week before the first phase ends, and therefore I would like to completely get rid of both the PR ( Image support and catch-testing ), and then focus on logging text, audio, histogram during the second phase. Till then Bye :)
