I have a custom layer. Let the layer be called ‘Gaussian’
class Gaussian(nn.Module):
def __init__():
super(Gaussian, self).__init__()
#@torch.no_grad
def forward(self, x):
x = x + torch.rand(x.shape)
x[2:] = x[2:] + x[1] # Some similar operations are also performed
return x
cnn_model = nn.Sequential(nn.Conv2d(1, 32, 5), Gaussian(), nn.ReLU())
If a
is the input, I want gradient of a
to exclude operations that are present in the Gaussian
module, but include the calculations in other layers of the neural network(nn.Conv2d etc).
In the end, my aim is to use the Gaussian module to perform calculations but that calculations should not be included in gradient computation.
I tried to do the following:

Used the
@torch.no_grad
above the forward method of theGaussian

Using detach after every operation in the Gaussian module:
x = x + torch.rand(x.shape)
and similarly for other operations
Are the above methods correct?
