Machine Learning In Production- Beyond Training The Model

Demand is higher than ever to create and use Machine Learning models in production systems. However, community attention is usually focused on the process of building and training a model; with little acknowledgment given to how these models are then deployed and used by applications, and the supporting infrastructure required. I shall detail a case study of the processes and tooling used to successfully integrate ML into M&S’s Try Tuesday online personal styling service; from inception to deployment. This talk will be useful for anyone wishing to utilise ML models into production systems in a robust and scalable way.
