Create a Layer project

Layer projects are basically containers to organize your machine learning project assets. They associate some combination of datasets and models.

You can create a new project in Layer in two ways:

Through Layer UI

  1. Log in to Layer.
  2. Navigate to layer.ai and access your account.
  3. Click Projects to open the Projects page.
  4. Click New project.
  5. Enter a Project name.
  6. (Optional) Enter a Project description.
  7. Decide whether the project should be public or private (default).
  8. Click Create project.

Your project is now ready for you to add assets after you initialize it in a notebook or a Python script.

Through SDK

In your notebook or Python script, you can basically call:

import layer
layer.init("new_project_name")

Layer will create the project if not created previously. Read more about Initializing your project
