MARS: Masked Automatic Ranks Selection in Tensor Decompositions

Tensor decomposition methods are known to be efficient for compressing and accelerating neural networks. However, the problem of optimal decomposition structure determination is still not well studied while being quite important. Specifically, decomposition ranks present the crucial parameter controlling the compression-accuracy trade-off. In this paper, we introduce MARS -- a new efficient method for the automatic selection of ranks in general tensor decompositions. During training, the procedure learns binary masks over decomposition cores that "select" the optimal tensor structure. The learning is performed via relaxed maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation in a specific Bayesian model. The proposed method achieves better results compared to previous works in various tasks.
