Help protect the Great Barrier Reef with TensorFlow on Kaggle Join Challenge


Loads the model from a SavedModel as specified by tags. (deprecated)

Migrate to TF2

tf.compat.v1.saved_model.load or tf.compat.v1.saved_model.loader.load is not compatible with eager execution. Please use tf.saved_model.load instead to load your model. You can refer to the SavedModel guide for more information as well as "Importing SavedModels from TensorFlow 1.x" in the tf.saved_model.load docstring.

How to Map Arguments

TF1 Arg Name TF2 Arg Name Note
sess Not supported -
tags tags -
export_dir export_dir -
import_scope Not supported Name scopes are not needed. By default, variables are associated with the loaded object and function names are deduped.
saver_kwargs Not supported -

Before & After Usage Example


with tf.compat.v1.Session(graph=tf.Graph()) as sess:
  tf.compat.v1.saved_model.loader.load(sess, ["foo-tag"], export_dir)


model = tf.saved_model.load(export_dir, tags=["foo-tag"])


Used in the notebooks

Used in the guide

sess The TensorFlow session to restore the variables.
tags Set of string tags to identify the required MetaGraphDef. These should correspond to the tags used when saving the variables using the SavedModel save() API.
export_dir Directory in which the SavedModel protocol buffer and variables to be loaded are located.
import_scope Optional string -- if specified, prepend this string followed by '/' to all loaded tensor names. This scope is applied to tensor instances loaded into the passed session, but it is not written through to the static MetaGraphDef protocol buffer that is returned.
**saver_kwargs Optional keyword arguments passed through to Saver.

The MetaGraphDef protocol buffer loaded in the provided session. This can be used to further extract signature-defs, collection-defs, etc.

RuntimeError MetaGraphDef associated with the tags cannot be found.
