How to load a model from an HDF5 file in Keras?

What I tried:

model = Sequential()

model.add(Dense(64, input_dim=14, init='uniform'))
model.add(LeakyReLU(alpha=0.3))
model.add(BatchNormalization(epsilon=1e-06, mode=0, momentum=0.9, weights=None))
model.add(Dropout(0.5))

model.add(Dense(64, init='uniform'))
model.add(LeakyReLU(alpha=0.3))
model.add(BatchNormalization(epsilon=1e-06, mode=0, momentum=0.9, weights=None))
model.add(Dropout(0.5))

model.add(Dense(2, init='uniform'))
model.add(Activation('softmax'))


sgd = SGD(lr=0.1, decay=1e-6, momentum=0.9, nesterov=True)
model.compile(loss='binary_crossentropy', optimizer=sgd)

checkpointer = ModelCheckpoint(filepath="/weights.hdf5", verbose=1, save_best_only=True)
model.fit(X_train, y_train, nb_epoch=20, batch_size=16, show_accuracy=True, validation_split=0.2, verbose = 2, callbacks=[checkpointer])

The above code successfully saves the best model to a file named weights.hdf5. What I want to do is then load that model. The below code shows how I tried to do so:

model2 = Sequential()
model2.load_weights("/Users/Desktop/SquareSpace/weights.hdf5")

This is the error I get:

IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-101-ec968f9e95c5> in <module>()
      1 model2 = Sequential()
----> 2 model2.load_weights("/Users/Desktop/SquareSpace/weights.hdf5")

/Applications/anaconda/lib/python2.7/site-packages/keras/models.pyc in load_weights(self, filepath)
    582             g = f['layer_{}'.format(k)]
    583             weights = [g['param_{}'.format(p)] for p in range(g.attrs['nb_params'])]
--> 584             self.layers[k].set_weights(weights)
    585         f.close()
    586 

IndexError: list index out of range

Answer

load_weights only sets the weights of your network. You still need to define its architecture before calling load_weights:

def create_model():
   model = Sequential()
   model.add(Dense(64, input_dim=14, init='uniform'))
   model.add(LeakyReLU(alpha=0.3))
   model.add(BatchNormalization(epsilon=1e-06, mode=0, momentum=0.9, weights=None))
   model.add(Dropout(0.5)) 
   model.add(Dense(64, init='uniform'))
   model.add(LeakyReLU(alpha=0.3))
   model.add(BatchNormalization(epsilon=1e-06, mode=0, momentum=0.9, weights=None))
   model.add(Dropout(0.5))
   model.add(Dense(2, init='uniform'))
   model.add(Activation('softmax'))
   return model

def train():
   model = create_model()
   sgd = SGD(lr=0.1, decay=1e-6, momentum=0.9, nesterov=True)
   model.compile(loss='binary_crossentropy', optimizer=sgd)

   checkpointer = ModelCheckpoint(filepath="/tmp/weights.hdf5", verbose=1, save_best_only=True)
   model.fit(X_train, y_train, nb_epoch=20, batch_size=16, show_accuracy=True, validation_split=0.2, verbose=2, callbacks=[checkpointer])

def load_trained_model(weights_path):
   model = create_model()
   model.load_weights(weights_path)
