Training on Common Voice Error - Error after importing

Hi

Hope you are well

I am currently having an error of training the model based on common voice.

Not sure why I cant pick up the extracted csv files after loading the model.

Please can I ask as to where this is going wrong:

Kind Regards

@JohnWayne It seems your paths are wrong. Why do you have the leading ../ ? Also, please note you won’t be able to do any seriously intensive training on macOS, since there is no TensorFlow CUDA support on that platform.

Try to make an os.path.exists to make sure that those paths are written correctly.

@lissyx and @reyxuan , okay will get the paths correct.

With regards to training, I got linuxOS on virtual machine. I currently have an issue with hardware cause I have 8gb of RAM -
Wanted to ask whether to upgrade the RAM to 16 or get an external GPU? Which is the better option.

Thanks

I guess that if you are training a real model, neither are good options. I fear external GPU might behave erratically, since we’ve got reports of exotic hardware configuration (related PCIe) that impacts a lot performances. Also, 16GB is not a lot as well, but the more RAM the better.

@lissyx Isn’t an RTX for example powerful enough for a real model?

Okay, thanks for the suggestion. Will also take into consideration the question posed if an RTX is also suitable.

Lastly, I have attempted to import the model for training on Ubuntu 19.04 however I have this error appear, been trying to correct it but to no avail:

Code

An RTX is useless if it’s not able to be fed at pace. We’ve got reports from people using specific PCIe configurations with huge slowdown depending on TensorFlow / CUDA / our model changes (we don’t know what impacts). So i’m just warning people.

Also, a real model really needs more than just one RTX GPU if you have a serious amount of data. WIth ~250h of French, it takes ~4h to train a model on 2x RTX 2080 Ti.

Please make an effort and use proper code formatting. Some important informations might be mangled by the markdown parsing.

That’s indeed the case, your error is incomplete, I cannot help you.

@lissyx Thanks for the warning. I think my PCIe configuration is fine. For the moment I have ~250h and an RTX 2080 Super.

WIth ~250h of French, it takes ~4h to train a model on 2x RTX 2080 Ti.

Do you mean training a model or training an epoch?

One model. Please check https://github.com/Common-Voice/commonvoice-fr/blob/master/DeepSpeech/Dockerfile.train.fr for details.

Apologies for that:

Hope the posting is appropriate. This is the output I receive from terminal

Please use proper code formatting, this is unreadable and Markdown parser is eating important Python informations.

@JohnWayne Please use ``` your code ```.

Okay, hope its readable now.

Placed the inverted commas as @reyxuan suggested. Quite different on linux from mac. Hope it works now

No it’s still the same, you have used the wrong ones.

@JohnWayne you may have missed it, but you can also typically edit a post.
That way you avoid a whole repost; just need to go in and type the correct character. My guess is that you’ve somehow got inverted commas that are “smart” (ie adjusted for opening and closing quotes) and those are not the ones to use :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh, thanks for the help and @reyxuan. Got the formatting done correctly
