AttributeError: 'DirectoryIterator' object has no attribute 'nb_class'

(Gertjan Brouwer) #1


I am trying to get the first model to work, which is the vgg16 model, everything looks to load fine and I did not change anything in the file only changed something in the first 6 sentences of the notebook.

This is the code i am currently using:

import tensorflow.contrib.keras as keras
import vgg16; reload(vgg16)
from vgg16 import Vgg16
vgg = Vgg16()
path = '/home/gertjan/Documents/data/'
batches = vgg.get_batches(path + ‘train’, batch_size=64)
val_batches = vgg.get_batches(path + ‘validation’, batch_size=64)
vgg.finetune(batches), val_batches, nb_epoch=2)

When i run this i get the following error:

AttributeError: ‘DirectoryIterator’ object has no attribute ‘nb_class’

I found the nb_class being called like this : batches.nb_class in the finetune function and I have tried some things but can not figure out why it is not working, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Apparantly the problem was because of keras2, it has name changes for nb_class. In this post there is a solution + some extra information about what changed: Keras 2 Released

You would need to do the following .First modify VGG
Updated self.ft(batches.nb_class) to self.ft(batches.num_class)
Next update the following .in the function def fit in
batches.nb_sample to batches.samples and val_batches.nb_sample to val_batches.samples

Update for Keras 2.1 - we should use 'num_classes’ instead of ‘num_class’ change the same in Hope this will help for you.

my current keras version is 2.2.4 . between i have found the updates of and have changed as mentioned. but there is no change for even the error itself because i have changed the nb_class to num_class and even after that the same error is poping up.AttributeError: ‘DirectoryIterator’ object has no attribute 'nb_class’
please do specify if there is anything i have missed to update in file
