SSD model trained on colab got errors on ArcGIS Pro

I am following a use-deep-learning-to-assess-palm-tree-health tutorial. Since I do not have GPU on my computer, I used colab to train the SSD model with arcgis.learn and it was successfully completed.

When I use the trained model (either .emd or dlpk) in "Detect Objects Using Deep Learning" tool, i got error right after model definition selection.

I tested with the pre-trained model provided on the tutorial page, it works without any problem.

What could be the problem? Has anybody train SSD on colab for ArcGIS Pro?

I have the same error (also trained my model on Colab). In the past I fixed the error by upgrading my PyTorch package from 1.4.0 to 1.6.0. You could try this, I'm curious if that will work for you. With the pre-trained models from ESRI this upgrade is not necessary, for some reason.. I have no idea why.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I tried as you suggested but getting same error.

I set epochs =100 and use early_stopping to get the best model in all trainings. The model can detect palm trees on sub_set of image (about 1200 x 600) on the colab but miss a lot. It either did not work on ArcGIS Pro.

Last week I managed to fix the error again (I'm currently working on a new laptop with ArcGIS Pro 2.7). 

The error was solved after upgrading both Torch and Torchvision. It might be the Torchvison upgrade that fixed the error. I used the following command to get a stable CUDA-enabled version of both packages:

python -m pip install torch==1.8.0 torchvision==0.9.0 torchaudio==0.8.0 -f

Hope this will help you.

Not succeeded yet. Will try again.

Yesterday, I trained the model on AGOL notebook where I can get a pre installed run time with GPU costing 0.5 credit per min.

Used the same codes I had tried on the Colab. All the modules needed for ArcGIS deep learning training are already installed there. The model trained on AGOL notebook work on my ArcGIS Pro. Currently AGOL notebook runtime use Arcgis 1.8.1 module. I have retrieved all the module names of the runtime and will install them on the Colab and test again.
