Model Details

EfficientFormer-L7, developed by Snap Research, is one of three EfficientFormer models. The EfficientFormer models were released as part of an effort to prove that properly designed transformers can reach extremely low latency on mobile devices while maintaining high performance.

This checkpoint of EfficientFormer-L7 was trained for 300 epochs.

Direct Use

This model can be used for image classification and semantic segmentation. On mobile devices (the model was tested on iPhone 12), the CoreML checkpoints will perform these tasks with low latency.

Limitations and Biases

Though most designs in EfficientFormer are general-purposed, e.g., dimension- consistent design and 4D block with CONV-BN fusion, the actual speed of EfficientFormer may vary on other platforms. For instance, if GeLU is not well supported while HardSwish is efficiently implemented on specific hardware and compiler, the operator may need to be modified accordingly. The proposed latency-driven slimming is simple and fast. However, better results may be achieved if search cost is not a concern and an enumeration-based brute search is performed.

Since the model was trained on Imagenet-1K, the biases embedded in that dataset will be reflected in the EfficientFormer models.
