Lingvo is a Tensorflow framework offering a complete solution for collaborative deep learning research, with a particular focus towards sequence-to-sequence models. Lingvo models are composed of modular building blocks that are flexible and easily extensible, and experiment configurations are centralized and highly customizable. Distributed training and quantized inference are supported directly within the framework, and it contains existing implementations of a large number of utilities, helper functions, and the newest research ideas. Lingvo has been used in collaboration by dozens of researchers in more than 20 papers over the last two years. This document outlines the underlying design of Lingvo and serves as an introduction to the various pieces of the framework, while also offering examples of advanced features that showcase the capabilities of the framework.
In this paper a data analytical approach featuring support vector machines (SVM) is employed to train a predictive model over an experimentaldataset, which consists of the most relevant studies for two-phase flow pattern prediction. The database for this study consists of flow patterns or flow regimes in gas-liquid two-phase flow. The term flow pattern refers to the geometrical configuration of the gas and liquid phases in the pipe. When gas and liquid flow simultaneously in a pipe, the two phases can distribute themselves in a variety of flow configurations. Gas-liquid two-phase flow occurs ubiquitously in various major industrial fields: petroleum, chemical, nuclear, and geothermal industries. The flow configurations differ from each other in the spatial distribution of the interface, resulting in different flow characteristics. Experimental results obtained by applying the presented methodology to different combinations of flow patterns demonstrate that the proposed approach is state-of-the-art alternatives by achieving 97% correct classification. The results suggest machine learning could be used as an effective tool for automatic detection and classification of gas-liquid flow patterns.
In order to better model complex real-world data such as multiphase flow, one approach is to develop pattern recognition techniques and robust features that capture the relevant information. In this paper, we use deep learning methods, and in particular employ the multilayer perceptron, to build an algorithm that can predict flow pattern in twophase flow from fluid properties and pipe conditions. The preliminary results show excellent performance when compared with classical methods of flow pattern prediction.
