Add_tfms error

Hey Gods of fastai,

I’ve made it - thanks to some great members here - to finally load the data, find the missing files, and now I’m ready to run the trainning.

But now, I got this error: “add_tfms”. What does it mean?

Thing is, I don’t need much to make transformations of the data. It’s simple a GAN as it’s supposed to look here:

Plus, this is the code I’m working on:

Probably would have something to do with how your dls is created, but need permissions to get into your notebook to look at your code

Sorry! Just fixed the persmission thing:

It looks like you are putting your dataset into the dls variable. I think that would explain why you are having issues passing it tfms.

I wonder if this tutorial would be helpful for your task as well:

Thanks. Seems like the issue here.
But now, after intializing more of the dataset, and then initializing the dataloader - I still can’t even show one_batch.

It asys:

ValueError: This DataLoader does not contain any batches

I actually couldn’t find a good solution in the tutorial that you sent me, but I actually followed this tutorial instead:

Only problem there is that even when I tried to follow the Regression block there, the tutorial uses “PointBlock” instead of RegressionBlock.

I tried it myself, and it didn’t work:

Hi, I guess the input of your model is an image. What is the output? A single number? If so a cnn and a RegressionBlock for the target should be fine.
If you output is another image, then you need a Imageblock as target and a unet

Thanks Mann!
Yes, you’re right. The input of the model is images.
The output should be another image, which is a reconstruction of the input-image.
The concept is taking a dark (low light) image input of an object, and train it as compared to a bright image of the same object. The model will be then able to get another dark image as input and reconstruct it itself.
More explanation is here:

Somewhere else I was told that the kind of training I need is Regression, but maybe I’m wrong.

I kinda tried to follow this tutorial as well:

Here it doesn’t mention whether there is needed an ImageBlock or RegressionBlock, because the tutorial uses an old version of fastai.

I think that I suddenly somehow fixed this by adding bs=1 here:

dblock = DataBlock(blocks=(ImageBlock, ImageBlock),
                   get_x = get_input, 
                   get_y= get_target)
dls = dblock.dataloaders(df,bs=1)

I have no idea if it actually works out or not. Will continue working this out.

this is the same notebook but with the current version of fastai

Thanks man! I desprately looked up for this. Beautiful.
Btw, do you know what this stands for?

dls.c = 3

It’s inside:
def get_dls(bs,size):

I think it sets the number of classes/outputs. Usually (if the output is a CategoryBlock for example) fastai infers it from data, but in this case I think should be manually set.

I think you’re right. When I tried to look up at the documentation for this argument “c” of dataloaders method, it didn’t appear anywhere. But later on, an error appeared when the unet_learner function didn’t get any n_out argument. The error suggesed to add that dls.c value. And the n_out sounded like what you explained.
