I think, it is possible, but it will require to manually create every
and specify each of their attributes and inputs in a certain order
specified by
operations declaration. Here is that model:
It is just a lot easier to store the whole model and not construct it
Another way, I think of, is to pass weights in placeholders and not save
them in
model, but it has to be done when session is already created and not during
loading. Maybe some init operation can be specified with variables
assignment to values
passed through placeholders during model loading, if it is possible. But is
it really crucial
to not store the whole tf model? It is not that big.
