Mx.viz.print_summary(sym) returns ValueError


Hi, I’m using conda_mxnet_p36 on an Amazon SageMaker notebook instance. In the code below I’d like to instantiate a model and display its summary parameters table. I have the following error. Any idea what’s wrong? how to make it work? Cheers

    net = gluon.nn.HybridSequential()
    with net.name_scope():
        net.add(gluon.nn.Conv2D(channels=20, kernel_size=3, activation='relu'))
        net.add(gluon.nn.MaxPool2D(pool_size=2, strides=2))
        net.add(gluon.nn.Conv2D(channels=50, kernel_size=3, activation='relu'))
        net.add(gluon.nn.MaxPool2D(pool_size=2, strides=2))
        # The Flatten layer collapses all axis, except the first one, into one axis.
        net.add(gluon.nn.Dense(num_fc, activation="relu"))
    return net        

net = BuildNet()

x = mx.sym.var('data')
sym = net(x)

See your other question for an answer of how to properly get the number of parameters.
The bug you are having could be due to a version of mxnet, there used to be a bug in the print_summary method. Try to upgrade to mxnet 1.3. You can do that by typing directly in your jupyter notebook

!pip uninstall -y mxnet-cu90mkl
!pip install mxnet-cu90mkl

edit: (I confirm your code is running without error in mxnet 1.3.0, though proceed with the adjustements suggested here: Understand number of parameters in mx.viz.print_summary(sym) to get the right number of parameters)
