So I have been researching for a bit on this topic but to me it’s unclear on how we are supposed to use the computer vision activities in our scenario:
To Quickly explain our scenario:
We have one single node enterprise Orchestrating application which is orchestrating a number of RPA processes across our robots.
We recently started adopting the computer vision activities. I am however having some mixed feelings in regard to the set-up:
From what I understand: to be able to use the Computer Vision activities we need to connect to a computer vision server.
To do this there are 2 options:
Use the Community CV ML Server by specifying URL: https://cv.uipath.com/ and an API Key.
–> The problem I see with this is that we are not able to retrieve an API key from our organisation(Orchestrator) in any way. This would mean that we are supposed to create a community user on the community cloud platform to work this way? --> Strange!
Deploy our own ML Server: https://docs.uipath.com/activities/docs/deploying-a-local-computer-vision-server
–> The problem I see with this is that we should provide the infrastructure to deploy the ML server to.
Additionally, I fear we will be missing out on the community model teaching itself based on all of the incoming information.
One more question: Do the computer vision activities come at a licensing cost?
Thanks in advance for your responses!
