Real-Time, Multi-Cloud ML/AI with PipelineAI, TensorFlow, GPU, TPU, Spark, Kafka


Traditional machine learning pipelines end with life-less models sitting on disk in the research lab.  These traditional models are typically trained on stale, offline, historical batch data.

Static models and stale data are not sufficient to power today's modern, AI-first Enterprises that require continuous model training, continuous model optimizations, and lightning-fast model experiments directly in production.

Through a series of open source, hands-on demos and exercises, we will use PipelineAI to breathe life into these models using 3 new techniques that we’ve pioneered:

* Continuous Optimizing (CO)
* Continuous Training (CT)
* Continuous Experimentation (CE)

CO, CT, and CE have proven to maximize pipeline efficiency, minimize pipeline costs, and increase pipeline insight at every stage from continuous model training (offline) to live model serving (online.)


Chris Fregly is Founder and Research Engineer at PipelineAI (, a real-time Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Startup based in San Francisco.  

He is also an Apache Spark Contributor, a Netflix Open Source Committer, founder of the Global Advanced Spark and TensorFlow Meetup, author of the O’Reilly Training and Video Series titled, "High Performance TensorFlow in Production."

Previously, Chris was a Distributed Systems Engineer at Netflix, a Data Solutions Engineer at Databricks, and a Founding Member and Principal Engineer at the IBM Spark Technology Center in San Francisco.
