What You Should Know Before Deploying ML in Production

MLOps provides tools that make building, deploying, and maintaining machine learning solutions easier than ever before. However, MLOps is not only a static set of tools that defines the way you operationalize your machine learning models, but is also (and most importantly) about your organization culture and the capability of sharing the product vision across different teams and roles. In this session, Francesca Lazzeri will share an overview of the most popular MLOps tools and best practices, and will present a set of tips and tricks that data scientists and engineers should keep in mind before deploying their solutions in production.
