ConnectionResetError: [Errno 104] Connection reset by peer

The fetch_MLdata function cannot download the MNIST dataset problem

from sklearn.datasets import fetch_mldata
mnist = fetch_mldata('MNIST original')


solution
1. Download the data set

!wget https://github.com/amplab/datascience-sp14/raw/master/lab7/mldata/mnist-original.mat


2. View the SkLearn data root directory

from sklearn.datasets.base import get_data_home 
print (get_data_home())

!tree /root/scikit_learn_data


3. Copy the data set to mldata directory

!cp mnist-original.mat /root/scikit_learn_data/mldata
!tree /root/scikit_learn_data


4. Verify

from sklearn.datasets import fetch_mldata
mnist = fetch_mldata('MNIST original')

mnist


5. OK!!!

mnist.data.shape

mnist.target.shape


added

from sklearn.datasets import fetch_openml	
mnist = fetch_openml('mnist_784', version=1)

can’t download it!

from tensorflow.examples.tutorials.mnist import input_data
mnist = input_data.read_data_sets("./data/")
