# Course 5 Week 2 Exercise 5 - Emojify_V2

Hi,

I’ve been stuck on this for a while. I am getting the following error

``````NotImplementedError                       Traceback (most recent call last)

I printed what is being sent to softmax and shapes of X and see the following

``````input shape (4,)
shape of X: (None, 5)
type of X: <class 'tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor'>
``````

I’ve gone through the a similar error and its suggested solution but no luck. Appreciate some guidance on this.

notice the error for difference
softmax(X) and softmax(x)

one is tensor and one is numpy call @auserhasnoname

check instructions before the grade cell which mentions

It should output a softmax probability vector of shape (m, C = 5). You may need Input(shape = …, dtype = ‘…’), LSTM(), Dropout(), Dense(), and Activation()

So for code line add softmax activation, your code softmax(X) doesn’t hold true for tensor function

There are two different parts to this assignment: the first part is done completely in numpy. And the `softmax` utility function is for use by the numpy part of the code. Then in the `Emojify_V2` section, we switch to using TF/Keras. There we can’t directly call the numpy `softmax` function: we need to use the TF activation version of softmax.

Appreciate the feedback Deepti, Paul. Totally missed that. Fixed that and it worked
