Create with Workflow Task

In this example, we'll take a pre-existing TensorFlow model and modify it to make it deployable.

We'll use a workflow to deploy the inference service and, as a bonus, we'll use a transformer to make the input take a base64 image and output a base64 image with the bounding boxes drawn.

We'll be using ssd_mobilenet_v2, an object detection model trained on COCO dataset with training images scaled to 320x320.

  1. To do this you need to download the files from the link above and extract them.

  2. Arrange the files as given below

    • Create a directory and give it a name, for this example we'll use ssd

    • In it create another directory called 0001, this is for the version of the model.

    • Move the extracted contents inside the version folder, this includes a saved_model.pb file and the variables folder.

    • For our transformer, you will also need to add a label_map.pbtxt file. Since this model was trained under the COCO dataset, it's label maps are available here.

      Our final result is something like this:

    • ssd
      • 0001
        • saved_model.pb
        • label_map.pbtxt
        • variables
          • variables.index
  3. Upload the files under your object storage provider ( Azure Storage, S3 or GCS ).

  4. Go to Workflows > Workflow Templates > Create Template

  5. Name the template deploy and then under manifest paste the following:

    entrypoint: main
    - dag:
    - name: deploy
    template: deploy
    name: main
    - name: deploy
    successCondition: status.address.url
    action: create
    manifest: |
    apiVersion: ""
    kind: "InferenceService"
    namespace: "{{workflow.namespace}}"
    name: "{{}}"
    - image: onepanel/transformer-tfod-base64:v1.0.0
    name: kfserving-container
    - name: STORAGE_URI
    value: "s3://ssd"
    - name: model
    value: "{{}}"
    runtimeVersion: "2.5.1"
    storageUri: "s3://ssd"
  6. This will generate the model servers and assign names automatically.

  7. Execute the workflow

  8. To test the model, use this JupyterLab notebook
