Vertex AI & TFLite

I have just trained a model using Vertex AI and have spent hours trying to find out how to export the model locally. Does anyone have any idea how to do this???

Hi @Winton_Cape ,

Here are the steps on how to export a model locally from Vertex AI:

  1. Go to the Vertex AI console and select the model that you want to export.
  2. Click on the “Export” button.
  3. In the “Export model” window, select the “Local export” option.
  4. Choose a location to export the model to.
  5. Click on the “Export” button.

The model will be exported to the location that you specified.

Note: The exported model will be in a compressed format and you can use the unzip command to extract the model.

Once the model files are extracted, you can load the model in your local environment using the appropriate framework-specific APIs. to load a TensorFlow SavedModel, you can use the tf.saved_model.load() function etc…

Please let me know if it helps you.


Hi there,

The problem is that I don’t see an Export button on the models page. In Vertex AI there is no export button. In the old interface there was an export button. Am I on the wrong page. From the console, I select models from the left navigation bar, then I see the model in question but no export button. If I select the model… no export button. If I click on the model, I see the results of the model but no export button???
