Transformer’s Scaled Dot-Product Attention

Scaled Dot Product attention from [1]
  • Original values of
[10, 20, 30, …90]
  • scale by 10, we have
[1, 2, 3, …9]
  • no scale, we have
[10, 20, 30, …90]

Code used for the vis

import torch
from torch import nn
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
f = nn.Softmax(dim=1)
x = torch.tensor([[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9], [0.1, 0.20, 0.3, 0.40, 0.50, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 0.9]], dtype=torch.float)
y = f(x)
plt.scatter(range(x.shape[1]), y[0], c="r", label="no scale")
plt.scatter(range(x.shape[1]), y[1], c="g", label="scale by 10")
