In general cases, we mostly follow the above diagram for deployment. There are 4 layers to consider:
- Storage refers to the database which is updated by
images regularly and its database schema. It’s loaded in memory/NoSQL to
calculate real-time aggregates.
- The model stage includes the selection of
analytical techniques, testing different models, and reviewing the
result. Training a model is required so that it can understand the
various patterns, rules, and features followed by testing the model
which determines the percentage accuracy of the model as per the
requirement of the project or problem. Creating a machine learning model
cannot be viewed as a goal in and of itself. The model should bring
value to the firm, generate new profits, or reduce costs and other parts
of the application need to interact with to start with the basics.
- Business logic is the portion of an enterprise system
that determines how data is transformed or calculated, and how it is
routed to people or software (workflow).
Visitors to an e-commerce website for sunglasses, for example, could
be able to try out different frames on their own uploaded photographs
using a relatively elementary vision AI model.
The website's business logic used for the model may
comprise a process such that the Web camera asking for permission to
operate or uploading files from the user's computer, the user specifying
with glasses they want to test, sending that to the model, which in
turns return an image combining the uploaded image with glasses added at
the appropriate location.
- Lastly, we need to design the API to interact with
the model. It is important to define how often we want to run inferences
on our model. Are online (i.e., real-time) predictions important to us
or can we batch-process millions of images overnight? This will impact
the API design immensely.
To build such an architecture, web frameworks are used
which makes it fairly easy. The frameworks can be installed as a python
package and then you can run an interface to interact with the models on
