Lesson 10 Discussion

(Marco) #122

In the imagenet_process notebook we have this line:

features_mid = bcolz.open(path+‘results/features_mid_1c_r.bc’)

yet this folder was not created previously. Does anyone know how to create this folder. I assume it is the output of the rn_top_avg model?

I think that performance of pillow-simd is limited by the read times from the hard disk.
I have seen this happen in case of my cuda as well (it is starved of data at times inspite of having multiple num_workers in play).
jeremy is using a ssd for his data…so the read times are super-fast and hence pillow-simd is effective.
