TFLite support for tensorflow js?

Is there a way I can use TFLite models in Tensorflow JS? Specifically, I am using expo react native. This is the model I am trying to use in tensorflow js: TensorFlow Hub

Hi @ken_huang, You can load the tflite model if tensorflowjs using tflite.loadTFLiteModel and can make predictions using the .predict method. For more details please refer to this document Thank You.

Yes, you can use our TFLite API to load a TFLite modal in JavaScript via TensorFlow.js:

You can then use:

Hey @Jason and @Kiran_Sai_Ramineni thank you so much! I am testing this right now, but I am coming across an error that states:
ERROR ReferenceError: Property ‘document’ doesn’t exist, js engine: hermes
ERROR Invariant Violation: “main” has not been registered. This can happen if:

  • Metro (the local dev server) is run from the wrong folder. Check if Metro is running, stop it and restart it in the current project.
  • A module failed to load due to an error and AppRegistry.registerComponent wasn’t called., js engine: hermes
    I searched for this error and apparently, it only happens if I have a library that depends on the document object in web development. I am currently using expo react native and I have no idea how to resolve this error. I think it may be caused by “tensorflow/tfjs-tflite”: “^0.0.1-alpha.10”. Here is my installed packages list:

    Also I removed the “@” symbol from some of these dependencies in this post because a new user can only “@” two people.

I am not familiar with react native unfortunately but it looks like it can not access the browser document object - does react native not have that in the web view it uses?

Hey @Jason , I don’t think it does. When I use it, it doesn’t work. I’m not sure what to do now. Do you have any recommendations for image classification models to run in react native?

Unfortunately I have not used react native - I am more on the web apps side of things not native.

Maybe @Matthew_Soulanille has some thoughts here.
