Multiple Input Single Output Segmentation using Deep Learning

60 views (last 30 days)
I have 4 modal volumetric image data and output segemented data. I have to create a multi input DAG network, and I have succesfully created it using lgraph..
But I cannot able to train the network using trainNetwork. It shows error that only one input can be feed to trainNetwork..
My code is below, store1, store2, store3, store4 are four input 3d datastore and pxd is the output datastore
inputSize = [64 64 64];
layers1 = [
lgraph = layerGraph;
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,layers1);
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,layers2);
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,layers3);
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,layers4);
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,concat1);
lgraph = addLayers(lgraph,outlayer);
lgraph = connectLayers(lgraph,'maxpool1','depth_1/in1');
lgraph = connectLayers(lgraph,'maxpool2','depth_1/in2');
lgraph = connectLayers(lgraph,'maxpool3','depth_1/in3');
lgraph = connectLayers(lgraph,'maxpool4','depth_1/in4');
lgraph = connectLayers(lgraph,'depth_1','tconv_o1');
miniBatchSize = 1;
options = trainingOptions('rmsprop', ...
'MaxEpochs',1, ...
'InitialLearnRate',0.01, ...
'LearnRateSchedule','piecewise', ...
'LearnRateDropPeriod',5, ...
'LearnRateDropFactor',0.95, ...
'Plots','training-progress', ...
'Verbose',false, ...
[net,info] = trainNetwork({store1,store2,store3,store4},pxds,lgraph,options);
Error shown is
Error in line:
[net,info] = trainNetwork({store1,store2,store3,store4},pxds,lgraph,options);
Caused by:
Network: Too many input layers. The network must have one input layer.
Detected input layers:
layer 'input1'
layer 'input2'
layer 'input3'
layer 'input4'
Please help me to solve this problem or suggest another way to train multi input image data

I will copy and paste the answer of Mahmoud Afifi:
"One idea is to feed the network with concatenated inputs (e.g., image1;image2) then create splitter layers that split each input. The problem here is that you have to feed the network with .mat files, not image paths. Another idea is to store your images as tiff files which can hold 4 channels. In this case, you can store a colored image (3 channel) and a grayscale one. Have a look at this example .. see twoStream.m file. "

what about sequence input (lstm) how can we use mutiple inputs?

How can I solve this problem??
I am training with 2 input and datastore return 2 input. Then the following problems arises:
Invalid training data for multiple-input network. For a network with 2 inputs and 1 output, the datastore read function must return an M-by-3
cell array, but it returns an M-by-2 cell array.

I want to build two inputs, one output network.
But the first input is an image and the second input is a vector.
When I try to train the network with cell array including two sub arrays (one for images, one for vector), I got an error.
"Invalid training data for multiple-input network. For multiple-input training, use a single datastore."
I created 4D image array, a vector array for each input and labels array for training.
How can I combine these data to a DataStore.
Matlab Datastore couldn't get the data from defined variable from workspace.
