Introduction to

Overview: provides cloud-based virtual machines (VMs) with GPU support, ideal for deploying machine learning models.
Features: Discuss the GPU options, scalability, and user interface of

Setting Up a Virtual Machine

Account Creation: Sign in or create an account on
VM Selection: Choose a VM with appropriate GPU capabilities for TensorFlow deployment.
VM Configuration: Configure the VM with the necessary software (e.g., Python, TensorFlow).

Deploying a TensorFlow Model

Model Selection: Use a simple pre-trained TensorFlow model like MobileNetV2 for image classification.
Code Preparation: Write a Python script to load and run the TensorFlow model. Here's a basic example:
pythonCopy code
import tensorflow as tf from tensorflow.keras.applications.mobilenet_v2 import MobileNetV2, preprocess_input from PIL import Image import numpy as np # Load pre-trained MobileNetV2 model model = MobileNetV2(weights='imagenet') def classify_image(image_path): img = img = img.resize((224, 224)) img_array = np.array(img) img_array = np.expand_dims(img_array, axis=0) img_array = preprocess_input(img_array) prediction = model.predict(img_array) return prediction
Model Deployment: Run the script on the VM to keep the model live for predictions.

Accessing the Model via Web Interface

Interface Setup: Use a framework like Flask or Gradio to create a web interface for the model.
Running the Interface: Start the web server on the VM.
Accessing Remotely: Access the model's web interface using the VM's public IP address.

Lab Conclusion and Cleanup

Review: Recap the steps taken to deploy the TensorFlow model on
Best Practices: Discuss managing resources and shutting down the VM when not in use to avoid unnecessary charges.
