I find this a bit confusing.
Several places across the MXNet documentation read:
Any data iterator that can read/write data from a local drive can also read/write data from S3.
Probably I am missing something, but I guess this is true ONLY IF the data has been pre-packaged into a
Reading raw JPGs from S3 does not work for me.
In an ideal world I would like to run the following
data_iter = mxnet.gluon.data.vision.ImageFolderDataset("s3:/my-bucket-containing-jpg-images")
which evidently does not work.
Am I somewhat obliged to turn all my dataset into
.lst before streaming it from S3?
No raw format supported?
