Building Interactive Machine Learning Demos Fast

Building machine learning demos is important so that non-technical collaborators and endpoint users (e.g. customers, business teams, quality testers) can provide feedback on model development. However, it can be a time consuming process as it involves front end engineering, design experience, and model deployment. In this presentation, we will talk about an open-source Python package, Gradio, which allows machine learning engineers to quickly generate a visual interface for their ML models entirely in Python. Gradio makes accessing any ML model as easy as opening a URL in your browser. We will provide a technical overview of Gradio and discuss real world use cases in which Gradio has been used to accelerate machine learning workflows.
