Productionizing Your Machine Learning Models
Productionizing Your Machine Learning Models

Abstract: 

You've developed and trained your ML model, and it performs beautifully in your development environment -- but what happens when you move that into production, and it suddenly has to scale massively varying elastic workloads, compete with other models for memory and processing resources, or mesh with models deployed in other languages and frameworks?

It isn't enough to simply fire up a machine instance, write a Flask wrapper, and call it a day: properly productionizing a model requires a deep understanding of container management, load balancing, CI/CD, dynamic resource allocation, and more. In this talk, we'll look at what your team does and does not need to build in order to move from weeks of deployment time to mere minutes, while preserving elasticity, low-latency, and flexibility.
