[L14] Problem with futures and ProcessPoolExecutor

(Davide Boschetto) #1

First of all, I’m very grateful for the precious insights this course has taught me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now: I’m trying to run Tiramisu-Keras on my machine with Python 3.5.2 and the latest version of Keras. I have a problem with calling conv_all_labels(). It seems that my process pool breaks somehow: full error below.

It seems that an exception is raised… And I can’t figure out why. Any good samaritan around? :slight_smile:

2 ex = ProcessPoolExecutor(8)
----> 3 return np.stack(ex.map(conv_one_label, range(n)))

Might this be the reason?

Having the same problem with a different function from fastai.text


I changed the function as shown below and it works. It was a post in this Forum it worked. I think nok was the author of this.

def parallel_trees(m, fn, n_jobs=8):
return list(ThreadPoolExecutor(n_jobs).map(fn, m.estimators_))

(ritika) #5

I am also facing the same problem with a different function from fastai
Any suggestion @lesscomfortable to fix this issue?

def get_preds(t): return t.predict(X_valid)
%time preds = np.stack(parallel_trees(m, get_preds))
np.mean(preds[:,0]), np.std(preds[:,0])

Thanks a lot bro!
