View Curriculum
  • Passionate about Artificial Intelligence
  • Knowledge about Python, Javascript, C# will help
  • Know Command Line

If you are passionate about Artificial Intelligence and the power it can bring for your projects and business, then this is the right course for you.

We will use the endpoints on the AIception deep learning platform for:

  • object detection
  • face detection
  • face age approximation
  • generating artistic images
  • and many more

NOTE: In this course we will look only at how to use the existing deep learning models on the AIception platform! For how to develop deep learning models try our other great courses.

We will start with a short demo to demonstrate the speed and ease of integrating the AIception platform.

We will then learn about what is a REST API and how AIception has a RESTful API, meaning that you can use any programming language and operating system to solve the deep learning tasks. We will also learn about the HTTPie tool that is very useful when debugging REST APIs.

We will play with different clients such as:

  • Python
  • Unity 3D (this will be a fun visual demo)
  • Javascript

We will see the use cases, opportunities and the benefits that are possible due to the AIception platform.

Some of the benefits are:

  • time 
  • money
  • access to deep learning expertise
  • scale to grow your business
  • free tier credits to experiment

All source code is on public GitHub with MIT License.

Now is the time to join us, start a friendly conversation and even leave your mark on the platform!

Who is the target audience?
  • Passionate about AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning
  • Integrate Deep Learning Functionality into a project
  • Looking for Deep Learning Business Opportunities
  • Rapid Prototyping of Deep Learning Ideas
  • Cares about Democratizing Artificial Intelligence

Security is an important topic so we discuss how the connection between your client and the AIception platform is encrypted.

AIception uses token to authenticate and authorize.

All requests need to have a token.

REST API = representational state transfer = a set of 6 guiding priciples.


AIception has multiple AI task endpoints.

Security and REST endpoints

HTTPie is a command line HTTP client with an intuitive UI and JSON support.

httpie is similar to cURL so if that is your choice feel free to follow along using cURL.

1. How do we create an AI task?

2. How do we read the answer from the AI task?

pip install httpie

http --verbose --ignore-stdin --auth $TK: POST image_url=$img async=true

http --ignore-stdin -a $TK: GET

HTTPie Demo

Explore the HTTPie tool in detail

--verbose flag

request, response with headers and body

What happens if we leave out  the TOKEN?

What happens if we send a bad parameter?

HTTPie is a great and necessary tool for debugging REST API.

HTTPie Demo Extra

AIception has it's own REST API tool right in the web browser, similar to HTTPie, but you do not have to install anything.

It is great because you also find out about the default parameters, the headers, the response codes.

It is all you need in order to do debugging.

AIception's Interactive Web API

Asynchronous requests versus Synchronous requests.

Advantages of Sync: easy

Disadvantages: the are blocking, waiting for the server to respond before making the next call, so slower

Advantages of Async: efficient and fast

Disadvantages: a bit harder to implement correctly

Async vs Sync Explained

explored the html and javascript demos and we looked at all the different endpoints AIception currently has to offer

basics of REST API and the usefull HTTPie tool that you can use in any REST project

tokens are unique and secret and they are the only way to access the AIception platform 

you can access the AIception platform using your favorite programming language and OS

encourage you to start talking to the developers of AIception
