How to find the ENDPOINT_URL for the models like HF_API_ITT_BASE?

trying to run the notebook ‘Short courses/Building Generative AI Applications with Gradio/Image captioning App’ in a local Jupyter Notebook…

I assume that I did not get the right endpoint_url…

(I already installed all required packages, like python-dotenv, gradio, ipywidgets). I opened an account at hugging face and got my personal HF_API_KEY. I created an .env file and put all the required keys and urls into it…)

If this is a URL problem: Where to find/create the required URL(s)?

See the screen shot for the code and the error message.

Many thanks for your hints/support!

I have the same error, even I had opened my own model endpoints at hugging face.

Yup, instructions in this course very vague… It should have been more clear and precise…

I got this api url by following below steps :

  1. Copy model name used : Which is Salesforce/blip-image-captioning-base.
  2. Go To : and search for above model : Salesforce/blip-image-captioning-base
  3. Open that model
  4. Click on Deploy. You will see an option Interface API
  5. Clicking on that will reveal API_URL which is free to use directly in your project.
