Syntiant Audio Posterior Parameters Error

I’m training and deploying a simple model with the Syntiant board and some audio that I’ve collected myself - basically the audio dataset has binary labels; either “on” or “off.” The default 1D CNN trains fine and gives good accuracy, F1, etc.

When I run the “Find Posterior Parameters” routine under “Deployment” I get the following error message. I’m not adding any data augmentation, and I haven’t added any layers. Any idea what might be going on? A quick google search shows that this error often pops up when there’s a typo in the Keras code, but I couldn’t find anything obvious when switching to the Keras mode rather than the visual mode. Thanks for any help!

Copying neural network…

Hi @daveanderson130,

Could you share your project ID?
The Syntiant board has a fully connected NN architecture, it would not work with a 1D CNN.


I switched from using an Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense to a Syntiant board - the default NN settings were meant for the Arduino board and are apparently unchanged when I switched to Syntiant features. I’ll just copy the architecture from this tutorial

Thank you for the help!
