Pytorch implementation of Hebbian learning algorithms to train deep convolutional neural networks. A neural network model is trained on CIFAR10 both using Hebbian algorithms and SGD in order to compare the results. Although Hebbian learning is unsupervised, I also implemented a technique to train the final linear classification layer using the Hebbian algorithm in a supervised manner. This is done by applying a teacher signal on the final layer that provides the desired output; the neurons are then enforced to update their weights in order to follow that signal.

In order to launch a training session, type:
PYTHONPATH=<project root> python <project root>/train.py --config <config family>/<config name>
<config family> is either
hebb, depending whether
you want to run gradient descent or hebbian training, and
<config name> is the name of one of the training configurations in
PYTHONPATH=<project root> python <project root>/train.py --config gdes/config_base
To evaluate the network on the CIFAR10 test set, type:
PYTHONPATH=<project root> python <project root>/evaluate.py --config <config family>/<config name>
