[Resolved]Convert 5D numpy array with dtype('O) to a 5D Tensor

Hi all,

So I’ve tried this but the dtype of img_patches is still ‘O’ which can not do the conversion.

for i in xrange(len(img_patches)):
for j in xrange(len(img_patches[i])):

Thanks so much in advance!

Simply doing img_patches.astype(float) does not work?

Thank you for the help!

Yeah I 've tried that but then I got this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<pyshell#4>”, line 1, in
ValueError: setting an array element with a sequence.

So it seems that I have to loop over the items in the “img_patches” to do the conversion as it somehow supports 3D array conversion but not 4D or 5D.

But I want the whole 5D array to be a tensor so that they can be a batch of inputs for the network.

PS: DataLoader does not support my data format.

I can reproduce your error with this:

u = np.array([[1,2], [2, 3, 4]])

it looks you are creating an array of vectors with different sizes. So your objects (‘o’) you are trying to convert into float are probably python sequences.

thank you so much for pointing that out! I’m a newbie for python and pytorch and my dataset is too large that I didn’t detect such errors.
But I’m still struggling with this because I couldn’t exclude those data with different size otherwise the results will probably be biased…

Never mind. Solved it! Thank you so much!!

Hi ! I have the same problem… how did you solve it ?
