EasyAgents: Reinforcement Learning for people who want to solve real-world problems
February 24, 2020
Reinforce Learning can be a game changer when you do not have training data, but are instead able to simulate an environment. Unfortunately, the theory of Reinforcement Learning is complex and the vast number of algorithms in that area adds to the burden for getting started. Easyagents takes some of the burden by making it a one-liner to run a Reinforcement Learning algorithm on your problem.
Introducing Kubeflow (with special guests TensorFlow and Apache Spark)
February 4, 2020
Modeling is easyproductizing models, less so. Distributed training? Forget about it. Say hello to Kubeflow with Holden Karaua system that makes it easy for data scientists to containerize their models to train and serve on Kubernetes.
The OS for AI: How serverless computing enables the next gen of machine learning
February 2, 2020
ML has been advancing rapidly, but only a few contributors focus on the infrastructure and scaling challenges that come with it. Jonathan Peck explores why ML is a natural fit for serverless computing, a general architecture for scalable ML, and common issues when implementing on-demand scaling over GPU clusters, providing general solutions and a vision for the future of cloud-based ML.
Model as a service for real-time decisioning
January 27, 2020
Hosting models and productionizing them is a pain point. ML models used for real-time processing require data scientists to have a defined workflow giving them the agility to do self-service seamless deployments to production. Niraj Tank and Sumit Daryani detail open source technologies for building a generic service-based approach for servicing ML decisioning and achieving operational excellence.
Unifying Twitter around a single ML platform
December 28, 2019
Twitter is a large company with many ML use cases. Historically, there have been many ways to productionize ML at Twitter. Yi Zhuang and Nicholas Leonard describe the setup and benefits of a unified ML platform for production and explain how the Twitter Cortex team brings together users of various ML tools.
