MLEP course 3. Timeout on : Classify Images of Clouds in the Cloud with AutoML Vision


For the Classify Images of Clouds in the Cloud with AutoML Vision task, both the uploading / processing of images and training of the model took much longer than stated. The lab timed out while the model was training . I do not believe that any of my actions were particularly slow at any point in the process.

What are the options here? Can we add time to the assignment?
I see others have had issues with this assignment.

Thank you for your help,

Hi Jeannie! Welcome to Discourse! In the past, this has been resolved by simply retrying the lab. You should be able to relaunch it from the classroom.

If the error persists or it shows that your lab time has been exceeded, you can request for an extension using the Qwiklabs support channels. You can access it via the question icon on the upper right of the Qwiklabs page. Their chat support is usually prety responsive. You can explain what is going wrong so they can also check on the backend if there is a bug that needs to be addressed.

Hope this helps! I will also give this a shot later to see if I can replicate the issue. I will report to the Qwiklabs agents as well if it also stalls.
