  Machine learning

Online event - hosted on Zoom platform and streamed on YouTube.

The trend in the industry is straightforward: automatization wherever is possible. Hence the "X"Ops term is appearing at every corner. Especially in the field of Machine Learning, the lack of automatization is going to slow down drastically the development. There are more and more frameworks to tackle this, but there are still areas where the homework needs to be done. Creating different development environments and tests is not only going to help you in the speed but this is now essential for security reasons as well. Applying the latest DevOps best practices on the Databricks platform can be challenging, and to tackle this, skills are required from Data, ML, and DevOps areas. Infinite Lambda, a UK-based data engineering consultancy company, is going to give a talk about how to resolve the above-mentioned issues.
