Track Overview

ML Everywhere

ML is pervasive and affects different verticals in the economy, from sales operations, to forecasting applications, marketing campaigns, and healthcare systems. ML is really transforming the world around us, creating an avenue to innovation across all sectors of the global economy. In this track you will learn all about the latest ML innovations and the multiple fields where and how ML is being applied and deployed: in particular, you will learn about ML operations (MLOps) to accelerate AI adoption and the latest open-source frameworks for improving real-world ML applications.

Session Machine Learning

What You Should Know Before Deploying ML in Production

Tuesday Nov 9 / 11:10AM EST

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...

Session Machine Learning

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Zero Shot Learning

Tuesday Nov 9 / 12:10PM EST

A long and expensive phase of machine learning projects is collecting and labelling data, and training ML models. In this talk I will show how one can get started deploying models without requiring any data. We talk about what foundational models are, and go through examples of them, such as...

Session Machine Learning

Streaming-first Infrastructure for Real-time ML

Tuesday Nov 9 / 01:10PM EST

Because of data drift, the accuracy of an ML model degrades over time. How well a model performs depends on how often it’s updated. While companies like Alibaba, ByteDance, Google, Facebook have been able to leverage real-time pipelines to continually update many of their models in...
