Learning Path: An introduction to the Model Asset Exchange


The Model Asset Exchange on IBM Developer is a place for developers to find and use free, open source, state-of-the-art deep learning models for common application domains, such as text, image, audio, and video processing. The curated list includes deployable models that you can run as a microservice locally or in the cloud on Docker or Kubernetes, and trainable models where you can use your own data to train the models.


Upon completion of this learning path, you will be able to:

  • Find and explore deployable and trainable deep learning models on the exchange
  • Deploy a model-serving microservice on Docker
  • Deploy a model-serving microservice on the Red Hat OpenShift container platform
  • Consume the microservice from a Node.js or Python web application
  • Consume the microservice from a Node-RED flow
  • Consume the microservice from a serverless application
  • Consume the microservice in a web browser using JavaScript
  • Complete the sample code patterns for the Model Asset Exchange
