class mxnet.optimizer.NAG(momentum=0.0, **kwargs)[source]

Nesterov accelerated SGD.

This optimizer updates each weight by:

state = momentum * state + grad + wd * weight
weight = weight - (lr * (grad + momentum * state))
  • momentum (float, optional) – The momentum value.
  • multi_precision (bool, optional) –

    Flag to control the internal precision of the optimizer.:

    False: results in using the same precision as the weights (default),
    True: makes internal 32-bit copy of the weights and applies gradients
    in 32-bit precision even if actual weights used in the model have lower precision.
    Turning this on can improve convergence and accuracy when training with float16.
