How to get image file names along with predictions (state Form)?

(Cynosure) #1


I trying to save the predictions for the state Form competition. I’ve got everything except the image files to attach the right column of the predictions.

in below snapshot i have copied the code from Part1 v1 notebook but i need the test_filenames array filed with fille names.

so question is how do i get the image names via fastai library? I can of course read from the directory but I fear they might have a different listing order than what the fastai library has read.

Another question in Lesson 2 there is this line which fetches next mini batch.

x,y = next(iter(data.val_dl))

But if this fetches only one next mini batch, wont we need a loop to iterate through all the batches? how can it loop through all batches with just one “next” call?

next is supposed to return the next element of the iterator object untill all the elements have been received.. It's just a python's shorthand..
This might clarify

I got the test predictions using :

predictions= learn.predict(is_test=True)
preds2 = np.exp(predictions) 
preds3= np.round(preds2,1)

But I am quite low in the Kaggle ranking (bottom 5% :frowning: ). I am wondering how can i improve the accuracy. as the fit shows, the accuracy is at 98.6 which is not bad.


however what i find strange is that instead of a cosine LR format, the curve is quite asymmetric. Anyone knows why, and if this is a bad thing ?

G’Day :wink:

I usually use something like this:

submission = pd.DataFrame({‘file’: os.listdir(f’{PATH}test’), ‘label’: pred_classes})

or you could use something like this:
