Error while converting saved_model (tensorflow 1.14) model

I am getting the following error while converting the model:-

[ ERROR ] 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd9 in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)
Unexpected exception happened during extracting attributes for node training/Adam/dense/bias/v/Read/ReadVariableOp.
Original exception message: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd9 in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)

I am attaching the folder after zipping (gender.zip). I ran the following command:-

python mo.py --saved_model_dir "./gender"

I am also attaching the tensorflow 1.14 code used to create the saved model (train.zip)

Hi Tarun,


The error 'ascii codec can't decode byte' generally occurs when you convert a Python 2.x str that contains non-ASCII to a Unicode string without specifying the encoding of the original string.


For your further information, do have a look at the following thread, which involves similar issue as you are facing.

Hi Tarun,


Please share more information about your model, is it an object detection/classification model, if custom model what type of layers does the model use, and environment details (versions of OpenVINO, OS, Python, CMake, etc.).
