RandAugment performs the Rand Augment operation on input images.

This layer can be thought of as an all-in-one image augmentation layer. The policy implemented by this layer has been benchmarked extensively and is effective on a wide variety of datasets.

The policy operates as follows:

For each augmentation in the range `[0, augmentations_per_image]`

,
the policy selects a random operation from a list of operations.
It then samples a random number and if that number is less than
`rate`

applies it to the given image.

**References**

**Arguments**

**value_range**: the range of values the incoming images will have. Represented as a two number tuple written [low, high]. This is typically either`[0, 1]`

or`[0, 255]`

depending on how your preprocessing pipeline is set up.**augmentations_per_image**: the number of layers to use in the rand augment policy, defaults to`3`

.**magnitude**: magnitude is the mean of the normal distribution used to sample the magnitude used for each data augmentation. Magnitude should be a float in the range`[0, 1]`

. A magnitude of`0`

indicates that the augmentations are as weak as possible (not recommended), while a value of`1.0`

implies use of the strongest possible augmentation. All magnitudes are clipped to the range`[0, 1]`

after sampling. Defaults to`0.5`

.**magnitude_stddev**: the standard deviation to use when drawing values for the perturbations. Keep in mind magnitude will still be clipped to the range`[0, 1]`

after samples are drawn from the normal distribution. Defaults to`0.15`

.**rate**: the rate at which to apply each augmentation. This parameter is applied on a per-distortion layer, per image. Should be in the range`[0, 1]`

. To reproduce the original RandAugment paper results, set this to`10/11`

. The original`RandAugment`

paper includes an Identity transform. By setting the rate to 10/11 in our implementation, the behavior is identical to sampling an Identity augmentation 10/11th of the time. Defaults to`1.0`

.**geometric**: whether to include geometric augmentations. This should be set to False when performing object detection. Defaults to True.

Usage:

```
(x_test, y_test), _ = keras.datasets.cifar10.load_data()
rand_augment = keras_cv.layers.RandAugment(
value_range=(0, 255), augmentations_per_image=3, magnitude=0.5
)
x_test = rand_augment(x_test)
