"ValueError" in Week 2 Assignment

While completing the Week 2 assignment, all was going well until I finally fit the model:

When I was faced with this error:

Epoch 1/30


ValueError                                Traceback (most recent call last)

What does this mean?

Check your model loss function.

No. Pick the loss function for a multi class classification where the labels are not one-hot encoded.

Don’t forget to remove code from your post above.


Thanks, this did the trick! :grinning:
