Error on torch.load for a run's saved file

I want to load a pt file of a run which is downloaded using WandB api. but this error is raised:
'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xaa in position 4: invalid start byte

My code is:

api = wandb.Api()
runs = api.runs('USERNAME/PROJ')
model_path = list(list(runs)[0].files())[1].download()
model = torch.load(model_path)

HI @sadra-barikbin , it sounds like an encoding/decoding issue to me. Can you try decoding in the following way

import io
with open(model_path, 'rb') as f:
    buffer = io.BytesIO(
model = torch.load(model_path)

If that doesn’t work, check out the PyTorch docs for torch.load to see some other possible fixes.
