Using Pretrained resnet for regression, RuntimeError: Found dtype Double but expected Float

Hello Everyone,
I am trying to train a model that learns to predict a single value(float) given an image using the pretrained resnet18 model. I am using the MSE loss but I am getting a Runtime error below.

RuntimeError: Found dtype Double but expected Float. from loss.backward()

Below is my code:

resnet18= models.resnet18(pretrained=True)
num_ftrs = resnet18.fc.in_features
resnet18.fc = nn.Linear(num_ftrs , 1)

def train_model(model, dataloaders, device, num_epochs=2, is_train=True):
  best_acc= 0.0
  for epoch in tqdm(range(num_epochs)):
    running_loss = 0.0
  #Iterate over dataloader
    for x,y in dataloaders:

      for image,target in zip(x,y):
        image =
        target =

        #zero the parameter gradients 
        criterion = nn.MSELoss()
        # forward 
        out = model(image.unsqueeze(0))
        loss = criterion(out, target)
        _,preds =torch.max(out,1)

Your help is really appreciated

@ptrblck Kindly help out

Can you provide the full error? Also have you tried converting any of the variables to float use .float(). Maybe try doing any of these:

loss = criterion(out, target.float())
# or
loss = criterion(out.float(), target)
# or
loss = criterion(out, target).float()

Thanks for the response. I just tried all the above suggestions and below is the full error.

I also printed out my input and target with their size and found this.

out : tensor([[-0.6273]], grad_fn=<AddmmBackward>) torch.Size([1, 1])
target : tensor(21.1924, dtype=torch.float64) torch.Size([])
loss : tensor(476.0975, dtype=torch.float64, grad_fn=<MseLossBackward>) torch.Size([])

@Dwight_Foster @ptrblck help out

dtypes of your target tensor as well as the image tensor should be torch.float32. Check your Dataset.__getitem__ returns the float32 tensors.
