This talk presents tools and packages now available to the R community to test and deploy TensorFlow models at scale across services like: TensorFlow Serving, Google Cloud and RStudio Connect. This talks gives an overview on how to train a model in TensorFlow, Keras or TensorFlow Estimators, then explains how to export models with a common interface across all packages, covers testing the exported models locally and explains different deployment services available and use cases for each of them. This talk closes with a walkthrough in RStudio covering training, testing and deployment. It also briefly covers an additional deployment alternative using kerasjs and answers a few questions from the audience.
