State Farm Prediction on Test Data Taking Over 1/2 Hour

Hey ya’ll,

It’s taking forever to make predictions on the State Farm test data. I just want to make sure I don’t have something improperly configured. I recognize that the test data contains 4gb of images, so I expect it to take a bit, but it’s taking upwards of 30 min for me, which seemed a little longer than I expected.

Anyone else deal with similar issues?

the computational cost of forward vs backward propagation is roughly 1:2, so the prediction of the entire training data should take a third of an epoch duration. how does that fit?
