Machine Learning Model Deployment: Strategy to Implementation

Machine Learning Model Deployment: Strategy to Implementation

Wednesday, March 20
2:50 PM - 3:30 PM
Room 120-121

This talk will introduce participants to the theory and practice of machine learning in production. The talk will begin with an intro on machine learning models and data science systems and then discuss data pipelines, containerization, real-time vs. batch processing, change management and versioning.

As part of this talk, an audience will learn more about:
• How data scientists can have the complete self-service capability to rapidly build, train, and deploy machine learning models.
• How organizations can accelerate machine learning from research to production while preserving the flexibility and agility of data scientists and modern business use cases demand.

A small demo will showcase how to rapidly build, train, and deploy machine learning models in R, python, and Spark, and continue with a discussion of API services, RESTful wrappers/Docker, PMML/PFA, Onyx, SQLServer embedded models, and
lambda functions.
