Keras don't work in Azure/JupyterLab RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using the command ' ("name of the model")' to save a Keras model in a Python script.  It works perfectly on my stationary PC (Windows). But not in Azure (Microsoft Machine Learning/Windows/ JupyterLab).

    I get a long error message. 

    What is wrong?

    My code is so far:

    import numpy as np
    from keras.models import Sequential
    from keras.layers import Dense, Dropout
    from tensorflow import keras

    def create_model():
        model = Sequential()
        model.add(Dense(128, input_shape=(4,), activation="relu"))
        model.add(Dense(256, activation="relu"))
        model.add(Dense(512, activation="relu"))
        model.add(Dense(256, activation="relu"))
        model.add(Dense(128, activation="relu"))
        model.add(Dense(2, activation="softmax"))

        return model

    trainingX = np.loadtxt("TraindataX.csv")
    trainingY = np.loadtxt("TraindataY.csv")
    model = create_model(), trainingY, epochs=1)"my_testmodel")


    error message:
