class InternalInfluence(LayerAttribution, GradientAttribution):
r"""
Computes internal influence by approximating the integral of gradients
for a particular layer along the path from a baseline input to the
given input.
If no baseline is provided, the default baseline is the zero tensor.
More details on this approach can be found here:
https://arxiv.org/abs/1802.03788
Note that this method is similar to applying integrated gradients and
taking the layer as input, integrating the gradient of the layer with
respect to the output.

Args:
forward_func (Callable): The forward function of the model or any
modification of it
layer (torch.nn.Module): Layer for which attributions are computed.
Output size of attribute matches this layer's input or
output dimensions, depending on whether we attribute to
the inputs or outputs of the layer, corresponding to
attribution of each neuron in the input or output of
this layer.
device_ids (list[int]): Device ID list, necessary only if forward_func
applies a DataParallel model. This allows reconstruction of
intermediate outputs from batched results across devices.
If forward_func is given as the DataParallel model itself,
then it is not necessary to provide this argument.

r"""
Args:
inputs (Tensor or tuple[Tensor, ...]): Input for which internal
influence is computed. If forward_func takes a single
tensor as input, a single input tensor should be provided.
If forward_func takes multiple tensors as input, a tuple
of the input tensors should be provided. It is assumed
that for all given input tensors, dimension 0 corresponds
to the number of examples, and if multiple input tensors
are provided, the examples must be aligned appropriately.
baselines (scalar, Tensor, tuple of scalar, or Tensor, optional):
Baselines define a starting point from which integral
is computed and can be provided as:
- a single tensor, if inputs is a single tensor, with
exactly the same dimensions as inputs or the first
dimension is one and the remaining dimensions match
with inputs.
- a single scalar, if inputs is a single tensor, which will
be broadcasted for each input value in input tensor.
- a tuple of tensors or scalars, the baseline corresponding
to each tensor in the inputs' tuple can be:
- either a tensor with matching dimensions to
corresponding tensor in the inputs' tuple
or the first dimension is one and the remaining
dimensions match with the corresponding
input tensor.
- or a scalar, corresponding to a tensor in the
inputs' tuple. This scalar value is broadcasted
for corresponding input tensor.
In the cases when `baselines` is not provided, we internally
use zero scalar corresponding to each input tensor.
Default: None
target (int, tuple, Tensor, or list, optional): Output indices for
which gradients are computed (for classification cases,
this is usually the target class).
If the network returns a scalar value per example,
no target index is necessary.
For general 2D outputs, targets can be either:
- a single integer or a tensor containing a single
integer, which is applied to all input examples
- a list of integers or a 1D tensor, with length matching
the number of examples in inputs (dim 0). Each integer
is applied as the target for the corresponding example.
For outputs with > 2 dimensions, targets can be either:
- A single tuple, which contains #output_dims - 1
elements. This target index is applied to all examples.
- A list of tuples with length equal to the number of
examples in inputs (dim 0), and each tuple containing
#output_dims - 1 elements. Each tuple is applied as the
target for the corresponding example.
Default: None
additional_forward_args (Any, optional): If the forward function
requires additional arguments other than the inputs for
which attributions should not be computed, this argument
can be provided. It must be either a single additional
argument of a Tensor or arbitrary (non-tuple) type or a
tuple containing multiple additional arguments including
tensors or any arbitrary python types. These arguments
are provided to forward_func in order following the
arguments in inputs.
For a tensor, the first dimension of the tensor must
correspond to the number of examples. It will be
repeated for each of `n_steps` along the integrated
path. For all other types, the given argument is used
for all forward evaluations.
Note that attributions are not computed with respect
to these arguments.
Default: None
n_steps (int, optional): The number of steps used by the approximation
method. Default: 50.
method (str, optional): Method for approximating the integral,
one of `riemann_right`, `riemann_left`, `riemann_middle`,
`riemann_trapezoid` or `gausslegendre`.
Default: `gausslegendre` if no method is provided.
internal_batch_size (int, optional): Divides total #steps * #examples
data points into chunks of size at most internal_batch_size,
which are computed (forward / backward passes)
sequentially. internal_batch_size must be at least equal to
#examples.
For DataParallel models, each batch is split among the
available devices, so evaluations on each available
device contain internal_batch_size / num_devices examples.
If internal_batch_size is None, then all evaluations
are processed in one batch.
Default: None
attribute_to_layer_input (bool, optional): Indicates whether to
compute the attribution with respect to the layer input
or output. If `attribute_to_layer_input` is set to True
then the attributions will be computed with respect to
layer inputs, otherwise it will be computed with respect
to layer outputs.
Note that currently it is assumed that either the input
or the output of internal layer, depending on whether we
attribute to the input or output, is a single tensor.
Support for multiple tensors will be added later.
Default: False
Returns:
*Tensor* or *tuple[Tensor, ...]* of **attributions**:
- **attributions** (*Tensor* or *tuple[Tensor, ...]*):
Internal influence of each neuron in given
layer output. Attributions will always be the same size
as the output or input of the given layer depending on
whether `attribute_to_layer_input` is set to `False` or
`True` respectively.
Attributions are returned in a tuple if
the layer inputs / outputs contain multiple tensors,
otherwise a single tensor is returned.
Examples::
>>> # ImageClassifier takes a single input tensor of images Nx3x32x32,
>>> # and returns an Nx10 tensor of class probabilities.
>>> # It contains an attribute conv1, which is an instance of nn.conv2d,
>>> # and the output of this layer has dimensions Nx12x32x32.
>>> net = ImageClassifier()
>>> layer_int_inf = InternalInfluence(net, net.conv1)
>>> input = torch.randn(2, 3, 32, 32, requires_grad=True)
>>> # Computes layer internal influence.
>>> # attribution size matches layer output, Nx12x32x32
>>> attribution = layer_int_inf.attribute(input)
