Course 5 Week 1 Assignment 3: problem with for djmodel

All the test cases prior to this line has passed. The model was succesfully created with coreect number of parameters and it is compiled succesfully with the mentioned loss function and optimizer. But when I am running this cell, which is not supposed to be edited:
history =[X, a0, c0], list(Y), epochs=100, verbose = 0)

I am getting a long error whose last line reads:
ValueError: The two structures don’t have the same sequence length. Input structure has length 30, while shallow structure has length 2.

I tried restarting the kernel and ran it thrice. But the problem persists
Can you suggest the solution?

Please post the entire error message, not just the ending.

The critical items (most commonly missed) in djmodel() are:

  • how you slice X to get x. Step 2A in the instructions has a hint for this.
  • what variables you use in LSTM_cell() for the initial_state.
  • use the .append() method to add out to outputs.

Note that any time you edit the djmodel() function, you must go back and re-run the previous cell where LSTM_cell() is defined.

That’s because LSTM_cell() is a global object, and it is instantiated the first time it is used in djmodel(). So if djmodel() sends it data that causes it to be initialized incorrectly, you have to re-create it (by running the previous cell again, or by restarting the kernel).

my mistake, this is the complete detail of error i got:

I rechecked the slicing of X and inputs of the LSTM_cell() on your suggestion. I think they are fine. I will post you the line of code personally.
