Serving Generative AI Models

We provide a variety of model templates from image/video generation to large language models, including the most popular open-source GenAI models including Llama 3, Stable Diffusion, ControlNet, Whisper, and more. This documentation provides a guide on how to deploy and interact with our models using web interfaces and APIs.

Deploying a Model

You can find all available model templates on the "Model Explorer" page, which can be assessed by simply clicking on the "AI" icon on the left bar.

Clicking on a model template should open a popup window where you can configure the deployment settings. Once you have set up the configurations, click on the Create New Deployment button to deploy the model. Note that you may need to provide container environment variables for some of the deployments. In particular, LLM deployments such as Gemma 2B, Llama 2 7B, and Llama 3 8B require the HuggingFace key (a.k.a. security token) of your HuggingFace account. You can find more information on how to obtain the HuggingFace key here.

After the deployment process is completed, you can find the new deployment listed on the Model Deployments page.

Interacting with Models

The currently available standard model templates can be grouped into two categories: media generation/transformation models, and Large Language Models (LLMs).

Media Generation/Transformation Models

  • Stable Diffusion: Generates images from text descriptions.
  • Stable Diffusion with ControlNet: Offers controlled generation of images from text.
  • Stable Video Diffusion: Generates video from image.
  • Whisper: Transforms audio into text.

These models are accessible via Gradio, which provides both a user-friendly web UI and an API endpoint.

Web UI

To interact with any model through the web interface, simply navigate to the deployed model's influence endpoint URL in your browser. The influence endpoints of each of the model deployments can be found on the Model Deployment page.


API Access

API access is provided for all models. Detailed API documentation is available at {INFLUENCE_ENDPOINT}?view=api (just append the influence endpoint with ?view=api, for example, It is recommended to use Python or JavaScript clients for API interactions.


Large Language Models (LLMs)

  • Gemma 2B LLM
  • Mistral 7B LLM
  • Code Llama 7B LLM
  • Llama 2 7B LLM
  • Llama 3 8B LLM

LLMs are accessible through OpenAI-compatible APIs.

Using the LLM API

The LLMs can be accessed using the standard OpenAI API format. The code samples can be found by clicking the Inference Endpoint of an LLM model deployment.

llm-list llm-detail

Here is an example of code samples.


Below is a quick guide to interacting with these models:

1. Model Listing

To list available models, use the following cURL command:

curl {MODEL_ENDPOINT}/v1/models

This will return information about available models, including model ID which is used for making API requests.

  "object": "list",
  "data": [
      "id": "meta-llama/Llama-2-7b-chat-hf",
      "object": "model",
      "created": 1712945959,
      "owned_by": "vllm",
      "root": "meta-llama/Llama-2-7b-chat-hf",
      "parent": null,
      "permission": [
          "id": "modelperm-eccb343d05ab41459c90403d74feb16e",
          "object": "model_permission",
          "created": 1712945959,
          "allow_create_engine": false,
          "allow_sampling": true,
          "allow_logprobs": true,
          "allow_search_indices": false,
          "allow_view": true,
          "allow_fine_tuning": false,
          "organization": "*",
          "group": null,
          "is_blocking": false
2. Sending Requests

To send a request to the LLM, use the model ID obtained from the listing:

curl -X POST {MODEL_ENDPOINT}/v1/chat/completions -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"model": "model-id", "messages": [{"role": "system", "content": "You are a helpful assistant."}, {"role": "user", "content": "Hello, how are you?"}], "max_tokens": 100}'

This will initiate a conversation with the model, which will respond based on the input provided.

  "id": "cmpl-abe715dfff9e48278c95e6f6d3025aeb",
  "object": "chat.completion",
  "created": 1712946059,
  "model": "meta-llama/Llama-2-7b-chat-hf",
  "choices": [
      "index": 0,
      "message": {
        "role": "assistant",
        "content": "  Hello! *adjusts glasses* I'm up and running, thank you for asking! I'm here to help with any questions or tasks you may have, so feel free to ask me anything. How can I assist you today?"
      "logprobs": null,
      "finish_reason": "stop",
      "stop_reason": null
  "usage": {
    "prompt_tokens": 34,
    "total_tokens": 87,
    "completion_tokens": 53

It is recommended to use Python or JavaScript clients for API interactions. These clients can be installed by:

  • Python: pip install openai
  • JavaScript: npm install openai@^4.0.0
