Speaker "Chris Fregly" Details Back



Modernize Your AI Pipelines With KubeFlow and TFX


In this talk, I will discuss the key ingredients of a high-velocity, rapidly-iterating, real-time machine learning pipeline.  Until now, this type of pipeline was only accessible to AI-first giants such as Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (FANG).  
While ML/AI frameworks such as PyTorch (Facebook) and TensorFlow (Google) have been open source for a few years, FANG is beginning to open-source key components of their sophisticated, battle-tested internal AI pipelines.  This is a huge with for the entire AI community.
This talk will highlight the latest open source projects from the top AI companies in the world - and demonstrate how to modernize your own AI pipelines to stay ahead of your competition.
