Production deployment of machine learning (ML) models requires data governance because models are data. Dean Wampler and Boris Lublinsky justify that claim and explore its implications and techniques for satisfying the requirements. Using motivating examples, you'll explore reproducibility, security, traceability, and auditing, plus some unique characteristics of models in production settings. Read more.
