MLOps – Applying DevOps Culture and Tooling to Machine Learning Projects
Artificial intelligence (AI) has quickly become the main focus topic for organizations and governments worldwide. What started in small R&D environments in the ‘big data’ revolution a few years ago has now grown into a mature practice where data scientists and data engineers work together towards common business goals. AI is powering the finance, retail, energy, and healthcare sectors. This growth also comes with challenges; machine learning models cannot live on their own and have to be incorporated into a production environment. To that extend programming frameworks, tools and infrastructure are evolving at an enormous pace. New architectures and design patterns have arrived to work with these new technologies. One important field of research is MLOps, which has evolved into a way of working and set of best practices to deploy, test, manage, and monitor machine learning models in production. In this session, we’ll explore this relatively new subject. Bas will explain the need for MLOps, dive into the tools and techniques, and give some examples of real-world solutions.
