Accelerate any learning system with ffcv: getting started takes just a few lines of code! First, convert your dataset into ffcv format (ffcv converts both indexed PyTorch datasets and WebDatasets):

from ffcv.writer import DatasetWriter
from ffcv.fields import RGBImageField, IntField

# Your dataset (`torch.utils.data.Dataset`) of (image, label) pairs
my_dataset = make_my_dataset()
write_path = '/output/path/for/converted/ds.beton'

# Pass a type for each data field
writer = DatasetWriter(write_path, {
    # Tune options to optimize dataset size, throughput at train-time
    'image': RGBImageField(
    'label': IntField()

# Write dataset

Then replace your old loader with the ffcv loader at train time (in PyTorch, no other changes required!):

from ffcv.loader import Loader, OrderOption
from ffcv.transforms import ToTensor, ToDevice, ToTorchImage, Cutout
from ffcv.fields.decoders import IntDecoder, RandomResizedCropRGBImageDecoder

# Random resized crop
decoder = RandomResizedCropRGBImageDecoder((224, 224))

# Data decoding and augmentation
image_pipeline = [decoder, Cutout(), ToTensor(), ToTorchImage(), ToDevice(0)]
label_pipeline = [IntDecoder(), ToTensor(), ToDevice(0)]

# Pipeline for each data field
pipelines = {
    'image': image_pipeline,
    'label': label_pipeline

# Replaces PyTorch data loader (`torch.utils.data.Dataloader`)
loader = Loader(write_path, batch_size=bs, num_workers=num_workers,
                order=OrderOption.RANDOM, pipelines=pipelines)

# rest of training / validation proceeds identically
for epoch in range(epochs):
