What You Didn’t Learn About Machine Learning in School

Abstract: 

One of the holy grails of machine learning is orchestrating a continuous learning platform in real-time – one that adapts as the population changes. Because the fact is, models begin to degrade as soon as they are deployed. And model fairness and bias must always be addressed.

That’s why it’s so important to monitor model drift, retrain champion models and evaluate new challengers. The most advanced organizations do this by running model training services at the edge. We will discuss how you can do the same to ensure you get the most value out of machine learning efforts.
