Converting torch Variable/Tesnor to python data type

Suppose I have 1 x 1 torch variable and I want to convert it into a float, is there a better way than doing this?[0, 0]
(Couldn’t find it in docs).

You don’t need the .numpy() part.

Regarding Variables, note that you cannot convert one directly to a numpy array, nor one of its coefficients to a scalar type. Since Variables only “wrap” around Tensors, to keep the autograd semantic working, if x is a Variable, x[i] is a 1d Variable of size 1.

To access the values of [the Tensor of] a Variable, you have to do it through its .data attribute, which is a Tensor.
