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.
