Hi, I am using Tensorflow to train a neural network ( The neural network doesn't contain any variables ). This is my neural network graph in Tensorflow.

X =  tf.placeholder(tf.float32, [None,training_set.shape[1]],name = 'X')
Y = tf.placeholder(tf.float32,[None,training_labels.shape[1]], name = 'Y')

A1 = tf.contrib.layers.fully_connected(X, num_outputs = 50, activation_fn = tf.nn.relu)
A1 = tf.nn.dropout(A1, 0.8)
A2 = tf.contrib.layers.fully_connected(A1, num_outputs = 2, activation_fn = None)

cost = tf.reduce_mean(tf.nn.softmax_cross_entropy_with_logits(logits = A2, labels = Y))
global_step = tf.Variable(0, trainable=False)
start_learning_rate = 0.001
learning_rate = tf.train.exponential_decay(start_learning_rate, global_step, 100, 0.1, True )
optimizer = tf.train.AdamOptimizer(learning_rate=learning_rate).minimize(cost)

I wanted to know how this graph should be saved in tensorflow so as to load it using readNetFromTensorflow

@AyushP123, I guess a first question is how to save the graph at least to load it in TensorFlow again? Because you need to find a way to restore it. There is some way to do it:

-- Save

# Save a graph definition (once)
tf.train.write_graph(sess.graph.as_graph_def(), "", "graph.pb")

# Weights initialization

# Training

# Save a checkpoint (weights only, no graph definition)
saver = tf.train.Saver(), 'tmp.ckpt')

-- Freeze (merge graph definition with weights, remove training-only nodes)

python ~/tensorflow/tensorflow/python/tools/ \
  --input_graph=graph.pb \
  --input_checkpoint=tmp.ckpt \
  --output_graph=frozen_graph.pb \

Only after these steps you might load frozen_graph.pb contains both graph definition and weights using OpenCV.

I have a similar problem.. I have a placeholder and it is assigned to some function which performs a few operations(which i am unaware of). My goal is to save the model but i don't have any variables to save. I tried declaring the saver but; I get an error saying "No variables to save"
