@bluesky314 - Can you verify that your Mac has cuda GPU?
nvidia-smi on your Terminal to see if you get details on CUDA.
Also, if you go to Apple Icon on top left, About This Mac -> Overview -> System Report -> Graphics/Displays. In all likelihood, you might see Intel GPU Displayed there. Intel GPUs are no good for Deep Learning. Cuda is currently only available in NVIDIA GPUs.
Did you get this error when you ran this -
conda env update -f environment-cpu.yml
Also, as pointed out in the above reply, Running Deep Learning without GPU is not fun. So your choices are -
- Get a GPU machine
- Use your mac to login to a Cloud GPU machine like Paperspace
- Try Google Colab or Crestle or other alteratives.
There are a number of threads out there discussing these topics if you want to explore more.
