Using Inception v3 for finetuning the classification of cats and dogs previously pretrained on ImageNet and also getting the predictions on test set

I am using this notebook which is combination of 3 notesbooks (linked in the second cell) for finetuning the Inception V3 for training the last layers on a cats and dogs dataset (from Kaggle).

import torchvision.models as models

model_ft = models.inception_v3(pretrained=True)
for param in model_ft.parameters():
    param.requires_grad = False

# Parameters of newly constructed modules have requires_grad=True by default
# Handle the auxilary net
num_ftrs = model_ft.AuxLogits.fc.in_features
model_ft.AuxLogits.fc = nn.Linear(num_ftrs, 2)
# Handle the primary net
num_ftrs = model_ft.fc.in_features
model_ft.fc = nn.Linear(num_ftrs, 2)

I am trying to understand if I have done this correctly, so I decided to use the visualization module from PyTorch trainings. However, I get some problem in visualization in cell [57].

Error is:

ValueError                                Traceback (most recent call last)

Also, based on the output I get in cell 38, is it fair to say that since the first element in output tensor is larger and I only have two classes, so it is a cat? I actually am testing on a random cat image from Web for this cell.

The error is raised by matplotlib as it seems you are trying to plot 9 figures in a subplot of 8.
