How to deploy and use a trained application?

Get optimal results with your brand new trained application by learning how to carry out actual image analyses with it.

In the Introduction to IKOSA AI section, you have been acquainted with the process of successfully training a custom image analysis application. Yet, in order to perform actual analysis tasks, you have to first prepare the model for examining novel image data.

In this article, you will learn how to deploy your custom IKOSA AI applications and subsequently analyze new image data with them.

What to expect from this page?

Get started

  1. Go to the “IKOSA AI Dashboard”.

  2. Click on the “Training Overview” item or

  3. Scroll down the “Latest Training Sessions” list.

Access an existing application training through the IKOSA AI dashboard

Deploy/Undeploy your trained model

Initially, your custom application will be in an undeployed mode with the status “successful.”

Please note: In the trial subscription plan you cannot train or deploy any application, as you don’t have access to IKOSA AI. To be able to train applications you have to contact us and purchase an IKOSA AI license. Per IKOSA AI license a single model can be trained. If you want to train another models, you have to request for an additional IKOSA AI Inference. Per each IKOSA AI Inference requested a single model can be trained.

For subsequently applying your custom application to new image data:

  1. Choose Deploy” from the hamburger button.

  2. When the status “deployed” is displayed, the status indicator switches from green to blue, and your application is ready for use.

Deploy an IKOSA AI application

Please note: In order to be able to deploy another trained application, you have to first underlay the one currently displayed. To do this, choose Undeploy from the hamburger Button and proceed deploying the new app as shown above.

Use your application on “unseen” images

The term “unseen images” refers to image data that is novel to your trained model. To run your application training on novel image data follow our step-by-step guidelines.

Step 1 - Navigate to the images for analysis with your IKOSA AI app

Once your application is deployed, switch to the respective “Image Library” of the current project:

Option 1:

  1. Go to the “Training Overview” page.

  2. Click the “View your application” link.

  3. A window with images for analysis opens.

Navigating to the Image Library directly from a deployed application

Option 2:

  1. Go to the main “Dashboard”.

  2. Click the “Projects” list item.

  3. Select the project for which you trained your application.

  4. Navigate to theImage Library” page.

Navigating to the Image Library from the main dashboard

Step 2 - Select images and start the analysis

From the “Image Library” page

Please note: It is best to use images that were not part of the training/validation set.

  1. In your “Image Library” choose a representative image (or multiple images) that you would like to have analyzed with your trained application.

  2. Click the “Image Analysis” button after selecting the image(s).

  3. Go to the “IKOSA AI Applications” tab.

  4. Choose your trained application.

  5. Start the analysis by clicking the “Start job” button.

Selecting images and starting the analysis

From the “Image Viewer”

  1. Start image analysis directly from the “Image Viewer”.

  2. While in image viewing mode click the “Image Analysis” button.

  3. Go to the “IKOSA AI Applications” tab.

  4. Choose your trained application.

  5. Start the analysis by clicking the “Start job” button.

Start analysis while in viewing mode

Collect your results

Step 1 - Go to the “Image Analysis” page

Navigate to the “Image Analysis” page either by:

  • clicking the “Image Analysis” page on the left-hand side menu or

  • clicking the “Hourglass” icon

You will then be redirected to the “Image Analysis” page.

Accessing your finished tasks using the hourglass icon

Step 2 - Navigate to the Analysis jobs section

Once your analysis job is done, it will be displayed in the Finished tab.

  • Depending on the complexity of your trained model, the analysis might take a few moments in which the job will be in an Active state.

  • If your analysis job is not finished yet, you can refresh the analysis jobs results section anytime by clicking the “Refresh” button.

Navigate to the finished tasks section

Step 3 - Download your results

  • Get all result outputs for a single image by clicking the “Download” icon next to it.

Download all analysis outputs for a single image


  • Get only an individual output file for a single image by opening the drop-down menu next to it and downloading the desired file.

Download individual files with results output


  • Get a zipped file containing the result outputs for all images in the project by clicking the “Download all” button above the table.

    Download results output for all images in your project at once


  • Get a zipped file containing the result outputs for all images in the project merged in a single CSV-file by clicking the “Download all merged” button above the table.

Get results outputs for all the images in your project merged in a single file


Please note: For quantitative analysis you will be presented .csv files and .jpg files with visualizations. 

You have done a great job obtaining solid numeric data from your images!

All you have to do now is to transfer the data into your statistical package and look for patterns in it.
