I currently have the following data:

f_map, inputs, s_bias = ml_dataset.dataset_for_s_bias()

where f_map is a tensor of matrices, inputs is a tensor of floats, and s_bias is a tensor of floats. The first two tensors, f_map and inputs, are the inputs to my ML regression algorithm, and s_bias is the expected output. The reason there are two kinds of inputs is because f_map is processed using a CNN, and the CNN turns each matrix in f_map into a float, which is concatenated with the inputs tensor, and the resulting tensor is inputted into an MLP to get a prediction for s_bias.

With this in mind, my model looks like this:

def load_model(lr, n_filters, filter_sizes, spp_dim, input_size, hidden_size, output_size):

cnn_model = CNN(n_filters, filter_sizes, spp_dim)

mlp_model = MultiLayerPerceptron(input_size, hidden_size, output_size)

loss_fnc = torch.nn.MSELoss()

optimizer = torch.optim.SGD(mlp_model.parameters(), lr=lr)`return cnn_model, mlp_model, optimizer, loss_fnc`

I didn’t know which model to use for my optimizer, so I just put the MLP model. However, I’m not sure if this is correct. Do I need a second optimizer for my CNN model? Or does the optimizer only need the final prediction, which comes out of the MLP model?
