Declarative Machine Learning: A Flexible, Modular and Scalable Approach for Building Production ML Models

Building ML solutions from scratch is challenging because of a variety of reasons: the long development cycles of writing low level machine learning code and the fast pace of state-of-the-art ML methods to name a few. On the other hand, solutions that automate the ML model development process are often opaque and hard to iterate on, resulting in users churning out. In this talk I’ll cover declarative ML systems, and how they address key issues that help shorten the time taken to bring ML models to production.

An Open Source Infrastructure for PyTorch

In this talk we’ll go over tools and techniques to deploy PyTorch in production. The PyTorch organization maintains and supports open source tools for efficient inference like pytorch/serve, job management pytorch/torchx and streaming datasets like pytorch/data.

Metrics for MLOps Platforms

Many companies are investing heavily into their ML platforms, either building something in-house or working with vendors. How do we know that an ML platform is any good? How do we compare different platforms?
