Hi Team,

I was trying to build an CNN on the Intel dataset set.
I am getting an following error which i am not able to resolve.

Please find link to my notebook. Would appreciate any assistance

simple_model = nn.Sequential(nn.Conv2d(3, 8, kernel_size=3, stride=1, padding=1),

Is this output channel that is set to 8, if we can set it to anything or some predefined calculation.

Hello sir, I wanted to ask what is the exact function of Model.train() being used while training for the CNN model in this notebook.

Earlier we havent been using it. A search on Google tells me, it sets the mode of training but what does it actually mean and why did we need it here.

    def fit(epochs, lr, model, train_loader, val_loader, opt_func=torch.optim.SGD):
        history = []
        optimizer = opt_func(model.parameters(), lr)
        for epoch in range(epochs):
            # Training Phase 
            train_losses = []
            for batch in train_loader:
                loss = model.training_step(batch)
            # Validation phase
            result = evaluate(model, val_loader)
            result['train_loss'] = torch.stack(train_losses).mean().item()
            model.epoch_end(epoch, result)

After modifying the Cifar10Cnn Model, i tried creating my model and i keep getting this “TypeError: torch.nn.modules.activation.ReLU is not a Module subclass”. I any idea what the issue might be?

Hi, Finally able to resolve this error.
This link was helpful

What will happen when we will not used random_seed in model?

how can I generate a Confusion matrix in an image classification with CNN in Pytorch? thanks
