Effective ML System Development

apply(conf) - May '22 - 10 minutes

In order to efficiently deliver and maintain ML systems, the adoption of MLOps practices is a must. In recent times, the ML community has embraced and modified ideas originating from software engineering with reasonable success. Software 2.0 (AI/ML) poses some additional challenges that we are still struggling with today. In addition to code, data and models also abide by the continuous principles (Continuous Integration, Delivery and Training). At Volvo Cars, we are embracing a git-centric, declarative approach to ML experimentation and delivery. The adoption of MLOps principles requires cultural transformation alongside supportive infrastructure & tooling that enables efficient development throughout the ML lifecycle. Join us for this session to learn about how Volvo Cars embraces MLOps.
