Subject [jira] [Commented] (SYSTEMML-1736) Add new 2D top_k utility function

Mike Dusenberry commented on SYSTEMML-1736:
-------------------------------------------

cc [~niketanpansare] We could use this in Caffe2DML to compute the top predictions for each
pixel location in the image segmentation scenario.

> We should add a new {{top_k2d}} utility function (in {{nn/util.dml}}) that accepts a
matrix {{X}} and return matrices {{values}} and {{indices}} with the top {{k}} values (i.e.
probabilities) and associated indices (i.e. classes) along a certain dimension.  This will
be modeled after the [{{top_k}} function in TensorFlow | https://www.tensorflow.org/api_docs/python/tf/nn/top_k].
 For the 2D case, {{top_k}} will operate on the channels dimension.  A typical use case here
is that in which {{X}} is the output of a {{softmax2d}} layer (so each channel contains a
set of normalized class probabilities), and {{values}} and {{indices}} will contain the top
{{k}} probabilities and indices along the channel axis.  This scenario would be common in
an image segmentation problem, in which every pixel of the output image will have a set of
class probabilities along the channel axis.
> Having these {{top-k}} functions will allow us to extract either predict a single class
for each item, or the top {{k}} classes, and therefore may be more useful that a {{predict_class}}
function.
> Although we will use {{values}} and {{indices}} as the names of the returned matrices
within the functions, in practice, one is likely to name the results {{probs}} and {{classes}}
in the calling environment.
