Hey I was just creating a simple Encoder using pretrained inception_v3 from torchvision.models but as soon as I pass input to the created model the following error trace comes up:

Error Trace:
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise ModuleAttributeError("’{}’ object has no attribute ‘{}’".format(
torch.nn.modules.module.ModuleAttributeError: ‘EncoderCNN’ object has no attribute ‘encoderCNN’

Is this the latest version problem or I am messing with some OOPS logic? I saw something similar ModuleAttributeError recently in yolo_v5 probably but not sure how much it is related to it :

Sorry I have fixed it. It was rather embarrasing:

It should be

for name,param  in self.inception.parameters():

instead of

for name,param  in self.encoderCNN.inception.parameters():

and I shouldn’t do require_grad for each forward pass
