Hello, I’m implementing a network which as an intermediate procedure computes probabilities of each element of a sequence to be picked (let’s say a tensor of 8x1, from a sequence of 8). I need to take a multinomial sampling from it (for example picking 2 of those elements) and set the tensor as all 0’s excepting the elements from the sampling. I implemented it as the following:
multinomial_out = out.transpose(0, 1).multinomial(2, False) for i in range(out.size()): out[i, 0] = 1 if i in multinomial_out.view(2) else 0 out = out.view(size_seq) return out
Where out is the mentioned tensor.
However, in that way, gradients from the parameters of the previous components of the network are stored as 0 and thus it is not able to backpropagate. How can I perform this operation allowing backpropagation?
Thank you in advanced.
