Description

Data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence have exploded in popularity in the last five years, but the nagging question of how to put models into production remains. Engineers are typically tasked to build one-off systems to serve predictions that must be maintained amid a quickly evolving backend serving space that has evolved from single machine to custom clusters to “serverless” to Docker to Kubernetes.

Holden Karau and Trevor Grant present Kubeflow—an open source project that makes it easy for users to move models from laptop to ML rig to training cluster to deployment—and demonstrate how to build a machine learning model and set up serving across clouds.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • General knowledge of machine learning (ML)

Holden Karau

Google

Holden Karau is a transgender Canadian open source developer advocate at Google focusing on Apache Spark, Beam, and related big data tools. Previously, she worked at IBM, Alpine, Databricks, Google (yes, this is her second time), Foursquare, and Amazon. Holden is the coauthor of Learning Spark, High Performance Spark, and another Spark book that’s a bit more out of date. She’s a committer on the Apache Spark, SystemML, and Mahout projects. When not in San Francisco, Holden speaks internationally about different big data technologies (mostly Spark). She was tricked into the world of big data while trying to improve search and recommendation systems and has long since forgotten her original goal. Outside of work, she enjoys playing with fire, riding scooters, and dancing.

IBM

Trevor Grant is an open source technical evangelist at IBM, a committer on the Apache Mahout, and contributor on Apache Streams (incubating), Apache Zeppelin, and Apache Flink projects. In former roles he called himself a data scientist, but the term is so over used these days. He holds an MS in applied math and an MBA from Illinois State University. Trevor’s an organizer of the newly formed Chicago Apache Flink meetup and has presented at Flink Forward, ApacheCon, Apache Big Data, and other meetups nationwide. Trevor was a combat medic in Afghanistan in 2009 and wrote an award-winning undergraduate thesis between missions. He has a dog and a cat and a ’64 Ford and he loves them all very much.
