Hi,

Matthias Sessler recently published an excellent blog which guides you in becoming a machine learning expert: https://blogs.sap.com/2018/11/13/how-to-become-an-sap-leonardo-machine-learning-foundation-expert/

So there’s already a ton of great resources out there to get you up to speed on machine learning and SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation – however there’s not that much that actually shows you how to use the technology hands-on – step by step. From zero to hero!!!

If you’re unfamiliar with the SAP HANA Academy, we’re a team that publish hands-on tutorial videos on all sorts of SAP-related technologies to YouTube. Don’t be fooled by the team name – we’re not only here to spread technical knowledge for HANA – although that’s a large part of what we do!

Anyway, we’ve just created a new tutorial series on Machine Learning Foundation and you can access it here: SAP HANA Academy ML Foundation Playlist

We have 10 video tutorials published so far that cover all aspects of SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Foundation including creating an instance, using the command line tools, performing inference, retraining customizable services, and Bring Your Own Model (BYOM).

Not every topic or service is covered however by following the examples for image classification you should get a very good idea of what to do for other services.

ML Foundation was recently made available in the SAP Cloud Platform trial so you can follow along with the tutorials without needing a productive license. There are some slight differences depending on whether you’re using a productive or trial instance but these are covered in the videos. All the content you’ll need has been posted to our GitHub repository.

You can access the tutorials directly as follows:

The Basics

Using Pre-Trained Services

Retraining Customizable Services

Bring Your Own Model (BYOM)

If you’re new to SAP Cloud Platform itself then you might also want to check out our onboarding video tutorial series which should hopefully get you up to speed pretty quickly.

Happy machine learning!

Philip

      Hi Varun,

      Thanks for your comments and trying out the tutorials.

      It sounds like something might have gone wrong in the retraining step.

      Were you able to view the retraining.log and did it mention any issues or errors?

      Thanks,

      Philip

    Thanks for your response Philip.

    Yes, I was able to view the retraining.log file and in the log file it mentioned that the model is uploaded to the repository. Here is the snapshot.

    Thanks,

    Varun

      Hi Varun,

      OK so it appears that the model was retrained OK.

      I really don’t know why the cf sapml retraining models command is failing.

      Have you tried the cf sapml retraining model_deploy command?

      If that’s failing too you could try submitting the model retraining job again just to see if it helps?

      Thanks,

      Philip
