What You Should Know Before Deploying ML in Production

MLOps provides tools that make building, deploying, and maintaining machine learning solutions easier than ever before. However, MLOps is not only a static set of tools that defines the way you operationalize your machine learning models, but is also (and most importantly) about your organization culture and the capability of sharing the product vision across different teams and roles. In this session, Francesca Lazzeri will share an overview of the most popular MLOps tools and best practices, and will present a set of tips and tricks that data scientists and engineers should keep in mind before deploying their solutions in production.

Session + Live Q&A Machine Learning

Streaming-first Infrastructure for Real-time ML

Tuesday Nov 9 / 01:10PM EST

Because of data drift, the accuracy of an ML model degrades over time. How well a model performs depends on how often it’s updated. While companies like Alibaba, ByteDance, Google, Facebook have been able to leverage real-time pipelines to continually update many of their models in...

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Zero Shot Learning

Tuesday Nov 9 / 12:10PM EST

A long and expensive phase of machine learning projects is collecting and labelling data, and training ML models. In this talk I will show how one can get started deploying models without requiring any data. We talk about what foundational models are, and go through examples of them, such as...
