Expected device cuda:0 but got device cpu though the two tensors are on cuda

Hi, I thought i’m doing think right, but got this error

features = torch.from_numpy(features).cuda()
print(features.device) #  shows cuda:0
dists = self.calculate_distance(features).cuda()
print(dists.device) # shows cuda:0
dists.add_(torch.tril(100 * torch.ones(len(features), len(features))))

But the last line fails with error RuntimeError: expected device cuda:0 and dtype Float but got device cpu and dtype Float

Anything I’m doing wrong?

Thank you

Hi @jpainam,

You have to move the torch.ones Tensor to the GPU:

dists.add_(torch.tril(100 * torch.ones(len(features), len(features)).cuda()))

Thank you, It works,
but, is there a way to just move everything to cuda if my class doesn’t extend nn.Module? Doing it for each tensor can be a little bit too much.

You should be able by doing:

torch.set_default_tensor_type('torch.cuda.FloatTensor')

I am doing

  1. torch.set_default_tensor_type(‘torch.cuda.FloatTensor’)
  2. source, target = source.cuda(), target.cuda()

But still getting the following error on google colab
