AugMix: A Simple Data Processing Method to Improve Robustness and Uncertainty

Contributors list



We propose AugMix, a data processing technique that mixes augmented images and enforces consistent embeddings of the augmented images, which results in increased robustness and improved uncertainty calibration. AugMix does not require tuning to work correctly, as with random cropping or CutOut, and thus enables plug-and-play data augmentation. AugMix significantly improves robustness and uncertainty measures on challenging image classification benchmarks, closing the gap between previous methods and the best possible performance by more than half in some cases. With AugMix, we obtain state-of-the-art on ImageNet-C, ImageNet-P and in uncertainty estimation when the train and test distribution do not match.

For more details please see our ICLR 2020 paper.



This directory includes a reference implementation in NumPy of the augmentation method used in AugMix in
. The full AugMix method also adds a Jensen-Shanon Divergence consistency loss to enforce consistent predictions between two different augmentations of the input image and the clean image itself.

We also include PyTorch re-implementations of AugMix on both CIFAR-10/100 and ImageNet in
respectively, which both support training and evaluation on CIFAR-10/100-C and ImageNet-C.

  1. Install PyTorch and other required python libraries with:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. Download CIFAR-10-C and CIFAR-100-C datasets with:

    mkdir -p ./data/cifar
    curl -O
    curl -O
    tar -xvf CIFAR-100-C.tar -C data/cifar/
    tar -xvf CIFAR-10-C.tar -C data/cifar/
  3. Download ImageNet-C with:

    mkdir -p ./data/imagenet/imagenet-c
    curl -O
    curl -O
    curl -O
    curl -O
    tar -xvf blur.tar -C data/imagenet/imagenet-c
    tar -xvf digital.tar -C data/imagenet/imagenet-c
    tar -xvf noise.tar -C data/imagenet/imagenet-c
    tar -xvf weather.tar -C data/imagenet/imagenet-c


The Jensen-Shannon Divergence loss term may be disabled for faster training at the cost of slightly lower performance by adding the flag


Training recipes used in our paper:




python -m allconv


python -m resnext -e 200


python -m densenet -e 200 -wd 0.0001



Pretrained weights

Weights for a ResNet-50 ImageNet classifier trained with AugMix for 180 epochs are available here.

This model has a 65.3 mean Corruption Error (mCE) and a 77.53% top-1 accuracy on clean ImageNet data.
