Who is this presentation for?

  • Data scientists, ML engineers, researchers, and ML ops and DevOps practitioners




ML development often focuses on metrics, delaying work on deployment and scaling issues. ML development designed for production deployments typically follows a pipeline model with scaling and maintainability as inherent parts of the design. Robert Crowe takes a deep dive into TensorFlow Extended (TFX), the open source version of the ML infrastructure platform that Google has developed for its own production ML pipelines.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Experience with ML development and software development
