  Machine learning

The talks will be live on YouTube.

Multiple speakers will shows us how they different technologies to successfully implement MLOps with variety of organizations and they will also share the most important and tricky parts of this process.

1. talk: DataOps: an indispensable component of MLOps (Wioletta Stobieniecka, SAS)
Abstract: ModelOps as one of the leading trends attracting huge interest in entire data science community, software vendors and companies embedding analytics into their everyday processes.
My presentation is aimed at presenting SAS approach to ModelOps based on best practice of model development and deployment resulting from years of experience. However, I would like to go further extending this idea on the indispensable component of the process – data and thus, the second part will be dedicated to DataOps concept and the idea of Feature Store.
