For help with FloydHub, please ask here.
If any students try this, please let me know. I haven’t got any 1st-hand experience myself with FloydHub.
I frequently use floydhub, I’ve run the notebook you covered in class and tried my own problem using the same. They work out alright if i make the necessary installations in the cells:
!pip install torch_nightly -f https://download.pytorch.org/whl/nightly/cu92/torch_nightly.html !pip install fastai !pip install fastai --upgrade !pip show fastai
Without the steps i mentioned before
data.classes method and the function
ImageDataBunch.from_folder don’t seem to be working in floydhub.
data.classes throws a Nonetype error
ImageDataBunch.from_folder returns an empty object
Even with the floyd requirements file.
Ah, I believe that I need to adjust the instruction guide then to have the user either do what you suggest by updating the
fastai library each time the Workspace is live, or by specifying the latest current version of
fastai in the
floyd_requirements.txt file. I’ll make this adjustment soon!
I had thought that
pip would have installed the latest version of a package when you don’t specify a version number, but because our PyTorch image is already including an earlier version of
fastai in the image it doesn’t seem to be kicking off an update.
