I spoke at a conference recently and one of the talks really resonated with me. It revolved around hosting, securing, and productionizing machine learning models.The speaker asked the audience, “Who in this room has developed a machine learning or artificial intelligence model for their business?” Being a technology conference, 80–90% of the hands shot up.“Now,” he … [Read more...] about 4 Common Pitfalls In Putting A Machine Learning Model In Production
Getting sufficient amounts of labeled training data is a major bottleneck for many machine learning (ML) projects. You can create fancy models but they will be of little value if domain experts need to spend years labeling the relevant dataset. That is particularly relevant in areas where high expertise is required from data labelers, like, for example, in medical applications … [Read more...] about How To Crowdsource Labeled Datasets Quickly With Open-Source Tools Like Snorkel
Traditional data warehouses are built for Business Intelligence analytics, CEO Dashboards, and other types of business reporting prepared for “human consumption.” That often implies that data in these warehouses is not ready for “machine consumption,” including machine learning (ML) models. For example, it is mostly sufficient for humans to know the date of a particular event, … [Read more...] about How Airbnb Solves Enterprise-Scale Data Challenges For Machine Learning
