MLOps is an emerging engineering discipline that combines ML, DevOps, and Data Engineering to provide automation and infrastructure to speed up the AI/ML development lifecycle and bring models to production faster. It is one of the widely discussed topics in the ML practitioner community.
In this track, we will explore the best practices and innovations the ML community is developing and creating. Key areas of focus include declarative ML systems, distributed model training, scalable and low latency model inference, and ML observability to protect the downsides and ROI.
