What is the process for submitting a model to Snap?
After you fill out the Model Submission form, we will contact you within 24 hours to provide
instructions on how to submit the code for your model. The process is simple and straightforward but depends on the technology
used to build the model and the user experience you want to provide. We will assist you
through the onboarding process to ensure your model is successfully submitted to the Snap prediction catalog.
Can I register as an author even if I don't have a model to submit right now?
Absolutely yes. Register as a potential model author by filling out the Author Registration form.
By registering you will be kept updated of all the latest
developments of interest to you including special promotions, updates to the prediction model catalog and new services for model authors.
Can I get help in setting the monthly subscription price for the model?
How do I decide how much free usage to include in the monthly subscription fees?
Pricing a model requires careful consideration; we will guide you through the process. There are two main components
to the monthly subscription fees for a model:
- The value of your IP.
- The amount of cloud computing resources that a customer is likely to consume in a month, while using the model.
This depends on
the number of web service calls (API calls) to the model and the amount of data processed by the model.
Clearly, both of these vary from model to
model and customer to customer. We will work with you to determine the optimal price, taking both these factors into consideration
along with other factors such as the expected rate of adoption of the model and the projected cost of cloud computing over time.
Do I need to own the IP for all the models I submit to Snap?
Yes, you must own the IP for all the models you submit to Snap. You are responsible
for settling any IP violation claims.
Who owns the IP of the model after I submit it to Snap?
You continue to own the IP for your model even after you submit your models to Snap.
What are my support responsibilities for my models?
Snap will provide first-level support to the model users including:
- Educating the user about how to use the model
- Training the model with the user's data
- Integrating the model with the user's application
- Deploying the model into production
- Escalating bugs or performance issues to you
Your responsibilities typically include:
- Customizing the model to meet the user's business requirements
- Fixing bugs and providing updates
- Modifying the model as appropriate to ensure compliance with performance requirements
- Knowledge transfer to Snap so we can provide first level support
Snap charges model users a monthly subscription fee. You will be paid monthly, after
the subscription fees have been received from the customer. Snap is responsible for collecting the
subscription from users.
