To implement a spatial attention mechanism within a deep learning model using MATLAB's Deep Network Designer, you would typically follow a series of steps to first create the attention module separately, and then integrate it into your network. The spatial attention mechanism you're describing seems to follow a common pattern where both max pooling and mean pooling across the channels are used to highlight important spatial features.
Step 1: Define the Spatial Attention Layer
Since custom operations like spatial attention are not directly available in Deep Network Designer's layer catalog, you would typically define this as a custom layer in MATLAB code. However, for simplicity and to provide a conceptual understanding, I'll describe the process focusing on the operations involved.
For custom implementation, you would define a class inheriting from nnet.layer.Layer and implement the spatial attention mechanism inside its forward function.
Step 2: Implementing Pooling Operations
Max and mean pooling across the channels can be done using operations like:
% Assuming 'input' is the input tensor of size [256, 256, 64]
max_pool = max(input, [], 3); % Max pooling across channels
mean_pool = mean(input, 3); % Mean pooling across channels
Step 3: Combining Features and Applying Convolution
After pooling, you would concatenate these maps and apply a convolution. In code, this step might require a custom layer or function to handle the concatenation and convolution:
% Concatenating along the third dimension
combined_features = cat(3, max_pool, mean_pool);
% Applying a convolution to get a single channel output
% Note: You need to define 'convLayer' based on your network architecture
attention_map = convolution2dLayer([7, 7], 1, 'Padding', 'same').forward(combined_features);
Step 4: Applying the Attention Map
Finally, you apply the spatial attention map to the original input:
% Assuming 'attention_map' is resized or processed to match input dimensions if needed
modulated_input = input .* repmat(attention_map, [1, 1, 64]);
