So I finished the 1st lesson (vid, kaggle nb and book chapter 1), however I am stuck on how to actually apply what I have learned on the things I want to do.
For example, I wanted to use tabular_learner on the kaggle house price prediction competition. But I don’t understand what I’m supposed to give as input to the path parameter in TabularDataLoaders.
Why do we even need a path though if we’re already sending the location of the csv file to the function call?
More importantly, how am I supposed to overcome this? Am I supposed to read the documentation of the Path class, which I did do, but failed miserable lol (and dive deeper into the many stuff I don’t understand). For example,
path = Path(‘bird_or_not’).
dest = (path/‘forest’) #what does this mean?
Path is a class right, how can an object of a class have a /‘string’ after it?
I mean, I don’t mind trying to figure it out from the documentation, or googling around…but I guess I would like to have some confirmation whether the best way to take the course would be to go to the next lesson, or try to figure this out first?
I’m sorry if my tone sounds negative, I got a little frustrated
