Intro to ML (lesson 8): AttributeError: 'float' object has no attribute 'rint'


I’m running the following code under the fastai-cpu:

net = nn.Sequential(
nn.Linear(28*28, 100),
nn.Linear(100, 100),
nn.Linear(100, 10),

When I tried the following command:
fit(net, md, n_epochs=5, crit=loss, opt=opt, metrics=metrics)

I got the following error:

AttributeError Traceback (most recent call last)
~/.local/lib/python3.6/site-packages/numpy/core/ in _wrapfunc(obj, method, *args, **kwds)
55 try:
—> 56 return getattr(obj, method)(*args, **kwds)

AttributeError: ‘list’ object has no attribute ‘round’

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

47 if wrap:

AttributeError: ‘float’ object has no attribute ‘rint’

Can someone point me in the right direction to figure out why this is happening?

Hi, I also ran into this error while running the fit( ) method in a cell for Deep Learning 2018 “lesson6-rnn” notebook. I had just done “conda env update” beforehand, so apparently a numpy update has rendered the old code useless. Yesterday, I ran the same notebook without throwing the error, which is the same as yours.

I wish I had an answer for you, Chaouki, but I’m in over my head. I regret doing the update, is all I can say!

Tried following this advice: Unfamiliar Error when Running

Unfortunately, it still throws an error that I won’t bother to describe.

Thanks @thalasz :slight_smile:

Fixed it for me! Thanks

How did you fix it finally?
