Track a model

Track a model, the model's dependencies, and other information relevant to that model with the W&B Python SDK.

Under the hood, W&B creates a lineage of model artifact that you can view with the W&B App UI or programmatically with the W&B Python SDK. See the Create model lineage map for more information.

How to log a modelโ€‹

Use the run.log_model API to log a model. Provide the path where your model files are saved to the path parameter. The path can be a local file, directory, or reference URI to an external bucket such as s3://bucket/path.

Optionally provide a name for the model artifact for the name parameter. If name is not specified, W&B uses the basename of the input path prepended with the run ID.

Copy and paste the proceeding code snippet. Ensure to replace values enclosed in <> with your own.

import wandb

# Initialize a W&B run
run = wandb.init(project="<project>", entity="<entity>")

# Log the model
run.log_model(path="<path-to-model>", name="<name>")
Example: Log a Keras model to W&B

The proceeding code example shows how to log a convolutional neural network (CNN) model to W&B.

import os
import wandb
from tensorflow import keras
from tensorflow.keras import layers

config = {"optimizer": "adam", "loss": "categorical_crossentropy"}

# Initialize a W&B run
run = wandb.init(entity="charlie", project="mnist-project", config=config)

# Training algorithm
loss = run.config["loss"]
optimizer = run.config["optimizer"]
metrics = ["accuracy"]
num_classes = 10
input_shape = (28, 28, 1)

model = keras.Sequential(
layers.Conv2D(32, kernel_size=(3, 3), activation="relu"),
layers.MaxPooling2D(pool_size=(2, 2)),
layers.Conv2D(64, kernel_size=(3, 3), activation="relu"),
layers.MaxPooling2D(pool_size=(2, 2)),
layers.Dense(num_classes, activation="softmax"),

model.compile(loss=loss, optimizer=optimizer, metrics=metrics)

# Save model
model_filename = "model.h5"
local_filepath = "./"
full_path = os.path.join(local_filepath, model_filename)

# Log the model
run.log_model(path=full_path, name="MNIST")

# Explicitly tell W&B to end the run.
