Deploying Machine Learning Models with Flask for Beginners

Video description

Flask is a web application framework used to develop web applications. Getting started with Flask is easy, and its power lies in its ability to scale up to complex applications. In this course, you’ll learn the most effective ways to use Flask in order to create your own web application.

You’ll begin with an introduction to Flask and quickly dive into defining and training your model. You’ll perform various actions on this model to train it and ensure that it is of the best quality for your application. You’ll also create and test API endpoints so you can predict the model’s behavior over time.

By the end of this course, you’ll have the confidence to deploy this application to the web and learn how to fix any errors that may arise during this process.

What You Will Learn

  • Define and train your model
  • Test the model availability and make predictions
  • Create a Flask endpoint and perform quality checks
  • Use image classification in your Flask application
  • Predict images on the Flask application
  • Deploy your machine learning model to the web


This course is for developers who are looking to learn Flask. A basic understanding of Python is preferred here as this will help you grasp the Flask concepts easier. You also need to have a functioning knowledge of machine learning and neural networks.
