What you'll learn

  • Lessons learned and best practices for scaling machine learning models


As more and more business decisions are made by machine learning models, do you know why your model made a decision? Is it biased? Can you find out which version of your model was in production two months ago? Are you getting alerts if your model is under malicious attack? Is your model performing as it was trained? Is there any concept drift happening?

Harish Doddi and Jerry Xu share the challenges they faced scaling machine learning models and detail the solutions they’re building to conquer them.

Hi Jerry,

I saw that you are a speaker at the Strata Conference; I’m looking forward to your presentation. I have been following your company for the last couple of months and I am very impressed with your success.
I would love to introduce myself and discuss a strategic partnership with your company. I have helped many companies in the Big Data and Analytics space such as Amazon, Bosch, Samsung, Graphcore, LG Eletronics MapR, Platfora, Couchbase, Snowflake, MongoDB, E8 Security with their challenging hiring needs.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon. Good luck with your speech.
