Issue retreiving 'int' object is not iterable error in KERAS


I am trying to run the following code. The following code runs fine on google colab, however on my system it throws an error. Tensorflow version installed on my system is is 1.12.0 and keras version is 2.2.4. Help is highly appreciated.

def profiler(layer, test_input):
 data_input = test_input
 start = time.time()
 data_input = layer.predict(data_input)
 end = time.time() - start
 milliseconds = end * 1000
 return milliseconds 

def dense_layer(input_dim, dense_size):
    x = tf.keras.layers.Input((input_dim))
    dense = tf.keras.layers.Dense(dense_size)(x)
    model = tf.keras.models.Model(inputs=x, outputs=dense)
    return model

def process_config(config):
    tokens = config.split(",")
    values = []
    for token in tokens:
        token = token.strip()
        if token.find("-") == -1:
            token = int(token)
            start,end = token.split("-")
            start = int(start.strip())
            end = int(end.strip())
            values = values + list(range(start,end+1))
    return values

def evaluate_dense(input_shapes_range, dense_size_range):
    for input_shape in input_shapes_range:
        for dense_size in dense_size_range:
            to_write = open("dense_data.csv", "a+")
            model = dense_layer(input_shape, dense_size)
            random_input = np.random.randn(1, input_shape)
            running_time = profiler(model, random_input)
            del model

input_size = "2000"
dense_size = "1000, 4096"
input_size_range = process_config(input_size)
dense_size_range = process_config(dense_size)
evaluate_dense(input_size_range, dense_size_range)

TypeError: 'int' object is not iterable


input_shape should be a tuple, but input_dim is an integer. You have passed input_dim, and since you have not specified it by name, it considers it as input_shape. So, just specify it by name:


Or if you want to specify the shape, use it like:
