Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’

In this TensorFlow tutorial, I will show how to fix the error Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’.

This kind of error arises whenever the community makes changes to the Keras library, or you may be misusing the attribute.

So, I created a project and used the SGD optimizer for my machine learning model; when I executed my code, I got the above error. So here, I have explained how to resolve that error using the two libraries, Keras and TensorFlow.

Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’

The error Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’ means when you try to access the SGD stands for Stochastic Gradient Descent optimizer from the ‘keras.optimizers’ module in a way that the latest version of Keras or TensorFlow’s no longer supports it.

First, I will show you how this error appears in your terminal. Run the code below.

from keras import optimizers
print(optimizers.sgd)
Attributeerror Module 'keras.optimizers' has no attribute 'sgd'

You get that error when you run the above code; a different code in your project may raise this error. To resolve this error, here you have to correct the name of the optimizers.

That means the name of the optimizer should be ‘SGD’, not ‘sgd’. So, correct the name of the optimizers and rerun the code.

from keras import optimizers
print(optimizers.SGD)
First Solution to Attributeerror Module 'keras.optimizers' has no attribute 'sgd'

Now, you can access the SGD from the module optimizers of the Keras library.

If you still face the error, the second solution is to use the TensorFlow library. Please don’t use the standalone Keras library, as it is available through Tensorflow in the latest version.

To access the SGD optimizer from TensorFlow, you must import the module optimizers from the tensorflow.keras.

from tensorflow import optimizers

Now access the SGD from the module optimizers as shown in the below code.

print(optimizers.SGD)
Second Solution to Attributeerror Module 'keras.optimizers' has no attribute 'sgd'

Again, using the optimizers module from the TensorFlow library, you can access the SGD that you can see in the above output.

So here I want to tell you that as a developer, you must always visit the official documentation of Keras or TensorFlow, as changes in API can lead to failure of the code execution or raise errors.

So, always be updated with the new changes made to these libraries.

This is how to solve the error Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’.

Conclusion

You learned how to solve the error Attributeerror: Module ‘keras.optimizers’ has no attribute ‘sgd’ using the Keras and TensorFlow framework.

You also learned we must check the function or module name to see whether we are using it correctly or not, this is also a reason for error that we get.
