For the code

import  tensorflow as tf

y_N= tf.Variable([1., 2., 3.],name="dd")
cost = -tf.reduce_mean(input_tensor=tf.reduce_sum(input_tensor=tf.math.log(y_N), axis=0))


train_step = tf.keras.optimizers.Adam(0.5).minimize(loss, var_list=[y_N])

I got error

ValueError: No gradients provided for any variable: ['dd:0'].

How to resolve it?

I am a Master's student at Blekinge Tekniska Högskola currently working on my Thesis- "Practices and advantages of submitting images in OSS project feedback."

As a part of this research, we are conducting Survey to get an opinion from the developer's side regarding the feedback received from the users for OSS projects. This survey aims to find the extent to which the characteristics of these images influence the developers in understanding the feedback received. The link to the Survey is provided here: https://lnkd.in/em_YVbC

The total time required to complete the Survey is approximately 15 minutes.

I was working with bert to encode strings, used uncased 768 A-12 model. I guess its not performing well, I mean, look at what I found...
x = "The concept of space is considered to be of fundamental importance to an understanding of the physical universe"

y = "Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock"
These two sentence has cosine score of [[0.7106109]]
I mean, is is something wrong with the model, or something I am doing wrong?

Hi, I'm a beginner in python and Tensorflow. I'm interested in AI and machine learning. I have done some introductory courses online on ML. I want to participate in GSoC 2021. I know the basics of python and github, but I'm unable to decide what to do next to get into open source development or how to contribute to the community. Can anyone guide me to resources/tips to get better at development and contibuting to the community?

Hey @Sudheeradh! I replied to your message on google groups but I thought I'd add a few more things here. Go through open issues on the TensorFlow repo labeled as good first issue and start contributing to them. It is the best and fastest way to familiarize yourself with the codebase! Goodluck :)
@Harsh188 Thank you. I'll look into it, after I've completed the course.

Hey guys! This is Kritika.. I'm interested in ML. And have done some contributions to opensource I'm a beginner rn.. I want to participate in GSOC , but not aware of how to contribute to this community Can anyone guide me ?
Sheikh Inzamam
Greetings everyone! this is Sheikh Inzamam, currently doing masters of Data Science at Monash University. Machine learning, Deep learning, Artificial Intelligence - these are my field of interest. Being a data science student, I really love taking the help of Tensorflow building the models and I am really interested if somehow I can be of use of the community by my contribution. Basically, I am new to open source but I have solid knowledge on Python. Now, I need a bit of your help in guiding me on how to start my open-source contribution for Tensoflow. Please help....
hi everyone, this is rishi and I have similar doubts as the people above. I am a beginner and want to get started with opensource contribution. I too have done a deep learning specialization on coursera but want to know how things work in the real coding world. Really looking forward for some reply. Thanks.
Hi everyone, this is Vishwanath currently pursuing my undergraduate in CSE 3rd year. I'm presently working in ML and CV field. I'm beginner in tensorflow and i want to participate in GSoC 2021. So can someone guide me in looking forward for GSoC.

Hey @akashnd look into these links, if you could get started with working on any of these issues (whichever you feel would be a good fit for you)

Does anyone know much about registering custom operators in TFLite using the C API? I've asked on stack overflow here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/64706198/register-custom-operator-in-tensorflow-lite-c-api
hello everyone. Could you please help me with contributing to tensorflow. please help me to get started.

Hi, @Uday-kiran007 ! Check out the guidelines here, https://www.tensorflow.org/community/contribute. Good luck!
Abhishek Singh
Hello everyone , I am Abhishek (a deep learning enthusiast), I am comfortable with C/C++, Python , I need a bit of guidance about how to contribute to the open source
Saif Ul Islam
@Abhi-ai1 , the first-contributions repository is a good place to start, https://github.com/firstcontributions/first-contributions, after that, look and google for beginner isuess, you'll find really easy ones as well to make you comfortable.
Shivam Sourav Jha
Warm Regards to everyone, I am Shivam Sourav Jha, I want to contribute to the community, I have seen the regulations and have contributed to the external repos, I intend to contribute via DL and ML. I've seen a few GSOC projects like (https://github.com/Vishal-V/GSoC-TensorFlow-2020) where research papers were implemented. I've seen a few research papers and wanna know if and how I can start converting them for the TF community. Also if possible could any of the mentors guide about how to contribute.

hey @Aryaman2912, the first step would be brush up your basic deeplearning concepts ( have knowledge of DNN, CNN, RNN, LSTM ).
after that, I would suggest you to start the tensorflow-in-practice course available on deeplearning.ai (COURSERA).

I've done that, made few projects, and worked on modeling a few anime GANs.

Hello Everyone!
My name is Vividha. I am a third-year computer science and engineering student interested in ML and AI.
I have used TensorFlow extensively in my projects and have also contributed a small change in the official repo that I encountered while having an issue that I raised. Therefore I want to contribute to TensorFlow to go forward in my journey of open source development.
I am comfortable with C++ and Python. I have implemented deep learning models from research papers and have also used the pre-trained models from the library for my projects. I have also gone through the GSOC student projects where the students have contributed to a lot of aspects such as improving the datasets library, implementing research papers, using different languages and frameworks to increase the compatibility and support usage of the library, different pipelines to increase efficiency and lot more amazing things.
Since there are so many aspects that I can contribute to, it would be really helpful if any of the mentors could guide me from where should I start contributing and how should I get started with it!
Saif Ul Islam
That sounds amazing, @V2dha , trying to do the same, but I haven't gotten the exact right time. I'll try to follow a similar path when my summers start. Thanks!
All the best @Rubix982! I am still learning though especially about open source development and contributions!
