class avalanche.training.plugins.CWRStarPlugin(model, cwr_layer_name=None, freeze_remaining_model=True)[source]

CWR* Strategy.

This plugin does not use task identities.

__init__(model, cwr_layer_name=None, freeze_remaining_model=True)[source]
  • model – the model.

  • cwr_layer_name – name of the last fully connected layer. Defaults to None, which means that the plugin will attempt an automatic detection.

  • freeze_remaining_model – If True, the plugin will freeze (set layers in eval mode and disable autograd for parameters) all the model except the cwr layer. Defaults to True.
