Engineering for Applied ML

apply(conf) - May '22 - 10 minutes

Applied ML consists of ML algorithms at its core and engineering systems around it. For over a decade as an applied ML practitioner, I have built a number of such engineering systems to help unlock the full potential of ML in a variety of problem domains. This talk is about my learnings in building those systems and patterns that I’ve found to work well across applications.
