As promised last week on the NEUBIAS meeting (which was amazing ) we just released the 1st public version of: PyPi package - czmodel
It allows any external party or to convert/package their trained TensorFlow2 models into a czmodel , in order to use it inside the ZEN ecosystem with support for GPU, Tiling and Integration with Image Analysis.
Motivation: ZEISS offers to create networks on demand as a paid service (custom solutions) Therefore we need an easy way to import trained models in ZEN.
Knowing that some or hopefully many of you create and train your own networks we think it makes sense to allow everybody to use their models in ZEN to benefit from support for GPU, Tiling, multi-dimensional data sets and the integration in our Image Analysis Framework (if you or your user like our software platform). If not, let us now why and happily use your model in your favorite environment …
The first supported python-based ML service is using networks for Segmentation. Other ML services (Image-2-Image processing, Classification etc.) will follow (based on feedback and need).
!!! Important !!!: In order to import and run such a model, one needs to have ZEN blue 3.2 (to be released soon) or ZEN core 3.1 (to be released) and the Intellesis module. The reasoning to publish the package earlier is to get feedback and to allow people to start training their networks early on … :-). So stay tuned.
Feedback and Suggestions are welcome.
