jules-damjiIntroducing Jules S. Damji > @2twitme < presenting “MLflow: Infrastructure for a Complete Machine Learning Life Cycle”.

Jules S. Damji is an Apache Spark Community and Developer Advocate at Databricks. He is a hands-on developer with over 20 years of experience and has worked at leading companies, such as Sun Microsystems, Netscape, @Home, LoudCloud/Opsware, VeriSign, ProQuest, and Hortonworks, building large-scale distributed systems. He holds a B.Sc and M.Sc in Computer Science and MA in Political Advocacy and Communication from Oregon State University, Cal State, and Johns Hopkins University respectively.

He’s also the Program Chair for Spark + AI Summit

ML development brings many new complexities beyond the traditional software development lifecycle. Unlike in traditional software development, ML developers want to try multiple algorithms, tools, and parameters to get the best results, and they need to track this information to reproduce work. In addition, developers need to use many distinct systems to productionize models. To address these problems, many companies are building custom “ML platforms” that automate this lifecycle, but even these platforms are limited to a few supported algorithms and to each company’s internal infrastructure.

In this session, we introduce MLflow (mlflow.org), a new open source project from Databricks that aims to design an open ML platform where organizations can use any ML library and development tool of their choice to reliably build and share ML applications. MLflow introduces simple abstractions to package reproducible projects, track results, and encapsulate models that can be used with many existing tools, accelerating the ML lifecycle for organizations of any size.

With a short demo, you see a complete ML model life-cycle example, you will walk away with: MLflow concepts and abstractions for models, experiments, and projects How to get started with MLFlow Using tracking Python APIs during model training Using MLflow UI to visually compare and contrast experimental runs with different tuning parameters and evaluate metrics
