Today we released 0.3.0 which aligns with PyTorch releases cycle and includes:

  • Full support to PyTorch v1.5.
  • Semi-automated GPU tests coverage.
  • Documentation has been reorganized [docs].
  • Data augmentation API compatible with torchvision v0.6.0.
  • Well integration with ecosystem e.g. Pytorch-Lightning.

For more detailed changes check out v0.2.1 and v0.2.2.


Data Augmentation

We provide kornia.augmentation a high-level framework that implements kornia-core functionalities and is fully compatible with torchvision supporting batched mode, multi device cpu, gpu, and xla/tpu (comming), auto differentiable and able to retrieve (and chain) applied geometric transforms. To check how to reproduce torchvision in kornia refer to this Colab: Kornia vs. Torchvision @shijianjian

import kornia as K
import torchvision as T

# kornia

transform_fcn = torch.nn.Sequential(
    [-45., 45.], [0., 0.5], [0.5, 1.5], [0., 0.5], return_transform=True),
  K.color.Normalize(0.1307, 0.3081),

# torchvision

transform_fcn = T.transforms.Compose([
    [-45., 45.], [0., 0.5], [0.5, 1.5], [0., 0.5]),
  T.transforms.Normalize((0.1307,), (0.3081,)),

Ecosystem compatibility

Kornia has been designed to be very flexible in order to be integrated in other existing frameworks. See the example below about how easy you can define a custom data augmentation pipeline to later be integrated into any training framework such as Pytorch-Lighting. We provide examples in [here] and [here].

class DataAugmentatonPipeline(nn.Module):
    """Module to perform data augmentation using Kornia on torch tensors."""
    def __init__(self, apply_color_jitter: bool = False) -> None:
        self._apply_color_jitter = apply_color_jitter

        self._max_val: float = 1024.

        self.transforms = nn.Sequential(
            K.augmentation.Normalize(0., self._max_val),

        self.jitter = K.augmentation.ColorJitter(0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 0.5)

    @torch.no_grad()  # disable gradients for effiency
    def forward(self, x: torch.Tensor) -> torch.Tensor:
        x_out = self.transforms(x)
        if self._apply_color_jitter:
            x_out = self.jitter(x_out)
        return x_out

GPU tests

Now easy to run GPU tests with pytest --typetest cuda

Please, do not hesitate to check the release notes on GitHub to learn about the new library features and get more details.

Have a happy coding day :sunglasses:
