Building an accurate machine learning (ML) model is a feat on its own. But once you’re there, you still need to find a way to make the model accessible to users. If you want to create a GUI for it, the obvious approach is going after shiny. However, often you don’t want a direct GUI for a ML model but you want to integrate the logic you’ve created into an existing (or new) application things become a bit more difficult.
Let’s say you’ve created a robust ML model in R and explain the model to your in-house IT department, it is (currently) definitely not a given that they can easily integrate it. Be it either due to the technology used is unfamiliar to them or because they simply don’t have a in-depth knowledge on ML.
