Optimizing ML Serving with Asynchronous Architectures
When AI architects think about ML Serving, they focus primarily on speeding up the inference function in the Serving layer. Worried about performance, they optimize towards overcapacity, leading to an expense end-to-end solution. When the solution is deployed, the cost of serving alarms those responsible for budgets, leading to... Read more

Why I Love Keras and Why You Should Too
I started working with Deep Learning (DL) in the 2016 – 2017 time frame when the framework ecosystem was much more diverse and fragmented than it is today. Theano was the gold standard at the time, Tensorflow had just been released, and DeepLearning4j was still being built. Both Theano... Read more

Improving Data Quality for Superior Results
When you’re a data scientist, you see a problem, and you build a model to solve it. If it’s not as accurate as you were hoping, you tweak the model. But what if it’s the quality of your data causing skewed or flawed results? Kaitlin Andryauskas of Wayfair, wants... Read more
Dr. David Armstrong Added to ODSC Europe Keynote Lineup
It’s not often that humans discover a new planet, let alone 50 at once. And when we do discover one, it’s often through satellites, telescopes, and other traditional means. Recently, however, 50 planets were discovered via a machine learning algorithm largely written by Dr. David Armstrong from the University... Read more
Could Your Machine Learning Model Survive the Crisis: Monitoring, Diagnosis, and Mitigation Part 1
As the world is changing rapidly around us, it is often questionable whether something we learned from the past is still valid. Machine learning models that make predictions of the future based on past data points are probably under most scrutiny from businesses in the current climate. Close monitoring... Read more
