Epigos equips you with all the essentials to transform images into AI models. We’ve developed a comprehensive set of tools to make computer vision accessible, even for those without extensive machine learning expertise.

This guide will lead you through the process of training a computer vision model that recognizes an image. The insights gained here can be applied to construct a customized computer vision model tailored to your specific needs.

Set Up Your Workspace

To begin, initiate your journey by signing up with either your email or Google account. You’ll then be redirected to the dashboard, where you can create a fresh workspace under your account.

Create workspace

Create Your First Project

Next, click on Create new project to start a new project that will contain the resources for your model training.

Create project

Provide a name, select the type of model, and describe the model you wish to build. The labels for your model, as well as annotation instructions for your data labelers, must then be provided.

Adding Data

After you’ve created your project, go to the project details by clicking on the project card.

Click the Uploads link in the sidebar, then click Upload dataset in the top right corner of the uploads page. A dialog box will appear, allowing you to upload files from your computer.

Uploads currently supports only image formats

Drop or upload files into the dialog area, and click on Upload files to upload the selected files.

Annotating Images

When the upload is completed, the uploaded batch will be displayed in table. To annotate, click on the Annotate button to start annotating your dataset batch. The annotation page will display the image to be annotated, together with the class labels to assign to the images.

To annotate the image follow these steps:

  1. Select the appropriate label for the image
  2. Click on submit save your annotation.
  3. After it’s saved, a next image in the upload batch will be loaded to continue annotating until all data the batch is labelled.

Creating A Dataset

Once you have annotated all your images, you need to add it into a dataset for use in training a model. To do so, exit out of the annotation tool and click Annotated data in the sidebar to review your annotations.

Follow the steps below to create a new dataset version:

  1. Click on the Create new dataset button. A dialog box will show up with configurations for your new datasets.
  2. Verify data source to use for the dataset by clicking Continue.
  3. In the TRAIN/TEST SPLIT, drag the slider to choose an appropriate training and validation set size for your dataset.
  4. Finally, click on Create dataset. You’ll be redirected to the datasets page to view and manage all your dataset versions.

Creating of the dataset can take a while depending on the size of your data. The process is done in the background and we’ll notify your dataset is ready to be used.

Training Your Model

Training a model within Epigos AI is streamlined with a single click. We take care of GPU allocation and associated expenses, and additionally provide you with readily available optimized deployment choices, which will be elaborated on in subsequent sections of this guide.

Once you’ve created your dataset, the option to initiate model training becomes visible. To begin the training process, kindly follow the steps outlined below:

  1. In dataset details view, click on Train model
  2. Choose your dataset version to use for the training.
  3. Click on Start model training. Your will begin training on our platform as background task. You’ll be notified once your model training is completed.

After your model is trained, you can review the training metrics by clicking on the model link in the models table.
