Running an AI Pipeline

If you don't have an AI pipeline for your analysis, easily create one from the AI models dashboard. Learn more here.

Starting analysis

Start by clicking the Analyze button at the top of the left side bar from anywhere in the app. This opens the Analysis page which guides you through the short 3-step process of running an AI Module on your images.

Step 1: Select images

Select the images or folders you wish to analyze. If you select a folder, all images within that folder will be analyzed. You can select multiple items by dragging your mouse or holding the shift button while clicking. Selected images and folders will be highlighted in blue to indicate they are currently selected. Click the Confirm selection button at the bottom of the page when you have selected all of the items you wish to analyze.

Folder hierarchies

If you create a hierarchy of folders, we will create selectable groups for you in results. This makes it very easy to be able to compare groups of images once your analysis is complete. See the following illustration to see how this is mapped into a selectable tree on the results dashboard:

Step 2: Select AI Module

You will see a summary of the images and folders selected for analysis. If you want to change your selection, click the Change selected files button which will take you back to step 1. Otherwise, scroll down to find the appropriate AI Module for your images and click its Select button.

Step 3: Enter parameters and Submit

If your AI Module requires any parameters, you will be prompted to enter them at this step. Each parameter will have a question mark icon which, when hovered, explains what the parameter is. Below the Submit button will show how much of your remaining analysis capacity will be used by this run. Finally, click the Submit button to start running your AI Module. Doing so will take you to the Results List where your new run will be shown at the top of list with a progress bar. Once the AI Module is finished running, its Result will become a link which will take you to its Results Dashboard.
Alternatively, you can start the analysis process directly from Files by right clicking an image or folder, or by selecting images or folders then clicking the Analyze button at the top right. Doing so will take you to step 2.
Right click the selected files to see the action menu

Observing progress

Once the AI Module starts running, you can observe its progress on the Results List. The higher the size and number of your images, the longer the module will take to run. It is safe to close the browser tab and reopen it later.
