Summer is now officially over and these last few months have been quite busy at Hugging Face. From new features in the Hub to research and Open Source development, our team has been working hard to empower the community through open and collaborative technology.
This post covers a wide range of areas our team has been working on, so don't hesitate to skip to the parts that interest you the most 🤗
In the last few months, the Hub went from 10,000 public model repositories to over 16,000 models! Kudos to our community for sharing so many amazing models with the world. And beyond the numbers, we have a ton of cool new features to share with you!
Spaces is a simple and free solution to host Machine Learning demo applications directly on your user profile or your organization hf.co profile. We support two awesome SDKs that let you build cool apps easily in Python: Gradio and Streamlit. In a matter of minutes you can deploy an app and share it with the community! 🚀
Spaces lets you set up secrets, permits custom requirements, and can even be managed directly from GitHub repos. You can sign up for the beta at hf.co/spaces. Here are some of our favorites!
