Exporting a FastAI model

Learn how to export a FastAI model

Last updated 18th August, 2020.


FastAI is a popular machine learning library supported by OVHcloud ML Serving. This tutorial will cover how to export a FastAI trained model.


  • A python environment with FastAI installed

Save a simple model

Let\'s take a simple example of a FastAI model to illustrate:

import os
from fastai.text import *

# Load dataset
path = untar_data(URLs.IMDB_SAMPLE)
df = pd.read_csv(path / 'texts.csv')
data_lm = TextLMDataBunch.from_csv(path, 'texts.csv')

# Initialize classifier
data_clas = TextClasDataBunch.from_csv(path, 'texts.csv', vocab=data_lm.train_ds.vocab, bs=32)
learn = language_model_learner(data_lm, AWD_LSTM, drop_mult=0.5)

# Train ...

# Export trainer

Your model is now serialized on your local file system in the my_export.pkl file.
