Every Modelbit deployment consists of three parts:
- A Python function. This is the code that will execute at runtime and returns your prediction.
- Dependencies of the deployed function. These include the ML model, other functions, and any other values needed by your main function.
- API endpoints to use the deployed function. Your deployment can be called from Snowflake, Redshift, and REST.
Begin by writing a Python function that will be deployed to Modelbit. The function's arguments will be the parameters the API receives at runtime.
from sklearn import linear_model
lm = linear_model.LinearRegression()
lm.fit([, , ], [2, 4, 6])
def example_doubler(half: int) -> int:
if type(half) is not int:
lm as a dependency,
lm is pickled
and sent to production along with the
example_doubler function. All of your function's
dependencies will be pickled and sent to production, so feel free to include
feature encoders, scalers, and anything else you may need.
The Python type hints will be used to set the input and output types of your warehouse's SQL functions that call this model.
To complete this deployment, add unit tests to help ensure the model performs as expected in production.
If you don't typically work in a notebook environment, you can deploy models with git.
