If I have a network described in an object of type
HybridBlock or something inheriting from
HybridBlock, I can call
net.export and then
SymbolBlock.imports to serialize and deserialize the network (in mxnet 1.2.1). But the object I get back is of type SymbolBlock. Is there any way to start with a
HybridSequential object, which may be a container for other blocks, and after serializing and deserializing still have an object of the same type?
Alternatively, is there a way to convert a
SymbolBlock to a
HybridBlock? I want to be able to call
net._children and get access to the components of the network as gluon objects.
