Machine Learning: An Engineering Perspective
Shipping Machine Learning into production turned out to be less about ML and more about Engineering. As Martin Zinkevich, Research Scientist at Google puts it: “To make great products, do machine learning like the great engineer you are, not like the great machine learning expert you aren’t.”
In this talk we explore an experience of considering ML Engineering through the lens of best Software Engineering practices.
We show scenarios on how such practices can help maturing ML processes, improve quality, and lead to better product metrics. Along the way, we also help you understand complex topics such as MLOps.
