Machine learning (ML) is the core of intelligent applications in the 21st-century economy. ML’s data-driven models power enterprises’ most mission-critical decision support, process automation, and customer engagement applications.
In this panel, TDWI senior research director James Kobielus will lead data industry experts in a discussion of how enterprises are putting ML models to work in their organizations. They will discuss such issues as:
- What investments should enterprises make to drive greater scale, speed, and automation in ML operationalization (MLOps) pipelines?
- What MLOps functions should be automated and which are best left partially or entirely reliant on the hands-on wizardry of professional data scientists?
- When should enterprises consider converging their MLOps siloes with their organizations’ data engineering infrastructures?
- How should enterprises evolve their MLOps practices and platforms to enable the next generation of ML-driven autonomous, robotics, embedded, and edge applications?
