The user interface(UI) is the graphical blueprint of an application. One major and important characteristic to keep in mind while building a data science project is a smooth user interface. The interface must be built in such a way that demonstrates the dynamics of the project to even a non-technical person. Therefore, data analysts, data scientists, programmers require a module for developing a user-friendly interface. There are various choices available for developing a user interface for any deep learning model, such as the generally used HTML, CSS, and javascript. On the other side, Tkinter, Gradio, Flask, Django are the user interfaces that can be built using python.

Gradio was released in February 2019 as an open-source library in python for building user interfaces that are straightforward to use and can be easily customized for any machine learning or deep learning model or any arbitrary function. It makes it simpler to play with models in the web browser by just dropping and dragging images, text, recording, etc. and recognizing live output interactively.

Gradio helps build an online GUI in a coding format that is very suitable for exhibiting the model presentation. It is quick, easy to set up, ready to operate, and accessible widely as a public connection. Moreover, it can distantly and parallelly run the model in a machine. Gradio works with a broad range of media-text, pictures, video, and sound. Besides ML models, it can very well be utilized as python code embeddings.

Uses of Gradio

  • Demos can be created effortlessly of machine learning codes that are useful for clients/ users/ team members.
  • During expansion, we can interactively debug models.
  • Developers can get feedback on model performance from users. This helps in improving the model easily and faster.
  • It can be incorporated with TensorFlow and PyTorch models for better comprehension.

Gradio consists of three parameters:

1. fn: performs the major operation of the user interface

2. inputs: the input component type

3. outputs: the output component type

Components like buttons, text boxes, checkboxes, file dialogs can be customized in Gradio. Moreover, it promotes multiple inputs and outputs. Gradio can also be used to conduct comparative analysis for diverse models.

Following are steps for building a gradio UI for a resnet50 model:
