Imagenet classes

I am trying to use a pretrained resnet model to test on a elephant image. How do we get the class name after getting class id. Also I am not sure I am doing preprocessing correctly. Is this the right approach?

import torch
import torchvision.transforms as transforms
from torch.autograd import Variable
from torchvision.models import resnet50
from PIL import Image

net = resnet50(pretrained=True)
centre_crop = transforms.Compose([
    transforms.Normalize([0.485, 0.456, 0.406], [0.229, 0.224, 0.225])
img ='elephant.jpg')
out = net(Variable(centre_crop(img).unsqueeze(0)))

I found a map of id -> label .
So for example

with open("imagenet1000_clsid_to_human.txt") as f:
    idx2label = eval(

for idx in out[0].sort()[1][-10:]:

will work, though eval may be not good way.


After downloading this URL used by keras:

you could use:

import json
class_idx = json.load("imagenet_class_index.json")
idx2label = [class_idx[str(k)][1] for k in range(len(class_idx))]

for idx in out[0].sort()[1][-10:]:

Best regards



@tom, thanks!
A tiny update:slight_smile:

import json
class_idx = json.load(open("imagenet_class_index.json"))

This works:

import json
idx2label = []
cls2label = {}
with open("../../data/imagenet_class_index.json", "r") as read_file:
    class_idx = json.load(read_file)
    idx2label = [class_idx[str(k)][1] for k in range(len(class_idx))]
    cls2label = {class_idx[str(k)][0]: class_idx[str(k)][1] for k in range(len(class_idx))}

I want to know where these imagenet_class_index.json files originate from, and how to generate them. I find it frustrating that the ONNX model zoo does not publish these artifacts, and I find little documentation on how to create them myself from scratch.

I need to know how to generate them, because I wish to model serve, and I see currently 2 options/choices for this purpose. It appears in the first example it states it needs the index_to_name.json file and in the second the model definition file. However, in the case of the second, it also requires a signature.json file input as well. This is all to convert an ONNX model from the model zoo to .MAR format for the model server.

  1. PTH to MAR format using TorchServe

Pre-requisites to create a torch model archive (.mar) :

serialized-file (.pt) : This file represents the state_dict in case of eager mode model.

model-file (.py) : This file contains model class extended from torch nn.modules representing the model architecture. This parameter is mandatory for eager mode models. This file must contain only one class definition extended from torch.nn.modules

index_to_name.json : This file contains the mapping of predicted index to class. The default TorchServe handles returns the predicted index and probability. This file can be passed to model archiver using —extra-files parameter.

version : Model’s version.

handler : TorchServe default handler’s name or path to custom inference handler(.py)

PTH to MAR format (TorchServe)

2.) ONNX to MAR using Multi-model-server

The downloaded model artifact files are:

Model Definition (json file) - contains the layers and overall structure of the neural network.

Model Params and Weights (params file) - contains the parameters and the weights.

Model Signature (json file) - defines the inputs and outputs that MMS is expecting to hand-off to the API.

assets (text files) - auxiliary files that support model inference such as vocabularies, labels, etc. These vary depending on the model.
