[SOLVED] Lesson 2: errors while trying to train model with Google Images

I got as far as learn.fit_one_cycle(4) but this is the output I got. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Could you share more information on which platform you’re using and your code?

From the information we have, since you have a valid image file you might want to check if

  • You have read access to the image file: if not the model wouldn’t be able to train on it.
  • The image file is corrupted: can you open and view the image?
  • You accidentally moved the image to another destination: by following the file path in the last line are you able to find your image?

Using Google Cloud Platform. It took a while for me to dig through the error messages and realize that it was just that one photo causing the issue. I deleted it, and everything worked fine. I guess it’s the case that verify_images can sometimes miss photos that are corrupted or have some kind of issue?

Thanks for your reply @fawl. Next time I will be sure to attach a github link to my code.

No problem man! Glad I could help. And yeah, I’ve found that verify_images can be a bit buggy sometimes, although it works pretty well majority of the time.
