grace - a deployment tool for deep learning models

Amith Reddy (~velutha)




A data scientist's job is usually to train a model often in the form of a jupyter notebook. However, to take this model to production takes different skills, a significant engineering effort and a lot of hidden technical debt accumulated over time.

Grace, a platform agnostic deployment framework addresses this problem (thus reducing the machine learning engineering effort) by acting as an orchestration tool to deploy deep learning models in production environment leveraging tensorflow serving , docker and kubernetes.

Any deep learning model to be deployed is configurable through a json spec containing input, output, model weights etc,.

Other services essential to maintenance like deep-dive monitoring tools, load testing tools, structured centralized logging are provided out of the box.
