Getting started with SCALE

This guide will help you discover Ikomia SCALE. You will learn how to deploy your first computer vision workflow to the cloud.


First of all, create an Ikomia account or log in. You can choose to sign up with your email or with your Google or GitHub account.

Deploy your first workflow

When you create an account, we give you a Getting_started project that contains some example workflows. Just deploy one of them to see how it works.

  1. Enter the Getting_started project by clicking on it in the dashboard.
  2. Pick one of the workflows:
    • Smart Object Detection: run object detection model and filter the object category you want.
    • Artistic Image Transformation: apply an artistic filter from famous artists to any image.
  3. On the workflow page, choose the size of your compute infrastructure.
  4. Click on the Add deployment button. Wait a few minutes for the deployment to be ready.
  5. Once ready, click on the Test me button to try it out with an intuitive user interface.
  6. Upload an image and enjoy the result.
