Dataset object has no attribute map

Hello,
I create a dataset object with the purpose to use map. However, when I try to call the function map, I get the error that the object has no attribute map.
Any ideas how to fix this?

class MyDataset(Dataset):
    def __init__(self, text, tags):
        self.sentence = text
        self.tags_per_token = tags

    def __getitem__(self, idx):
        sentence = self.sentence[idx]
        tags_per_token = self.tags_per_token[idx]
        #return one_text, one_label
        return {"text_words": one_text,"tags":tags_per_token}

    def __len__(self):
        return len(self.tags_per_token)
      
dataset_train = MyDataset(train_data, train_tags)
dataset_train.map(
    my_function,
    batched=True)

AttributeError: 'MyDataset' object has no attribute 'map'

This seems to be the same issue as described here (unfortunately without a follow up).
Could you describe where you’ve seen the .map method applied on torch.utils.data.Dataset as it’s not a built-in method?

Hi @ptrblck
Thanks for your reply - I was following the huggingface dataset preparation in

Perhaps a huggingface dataset is different to a pytorch dataset.

Yes, this seems to be the case so you might want to ask in the HF discussion board.

Thanks @ptrblck ! that cleared out the confusion
