In PyTorch’s recent vision examples here: vision/transforms.py at main · pytorch/vision · GitHub

and vision/train.py at main · pytorch/vision · GitHub, it was shown how to use `Mixup`

with the pipeline. I noticed when trying to use their `Mixup`

function on my own that `CrossEntropyLoss`

in general don’t expect targets to be of one-hot encoded, and it threw me a `RuntimeError: Expected object of scalar type Long but got scalar type Float for argument #2 'target' in call to _thnn_nll_loss_forward`

error.

Am I missing something from the documentation

```
