Please check if you meet the same error as Google Colab ssd.ipynb no python3.6 - #20 by akash.singh1.

If yes, as mentioned in that topic, Google Colab ssd.ipynb no python3.6 - #24 by Morganh , TAO team is working on the common issue in colab.

Thank’s @Morganh,

While you work to fix the issue, is there something we can do? Do these notebooks work anywhere else? AWS for instance?

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue anymore. Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one. Thanks

Yes, it can work.
You can run in local dgpu machine or cloud(such as AWS).
