            ABOUT THIS BOOK 

   Machine Learning Logistics

   How do you get a machine learning system to deliver value from    big data?
   Turns out that 90% of the effort required for success in machine    learning is not the algorithm or the model or the learning - it's the    logistics. Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman identify what matters in    machine learning logistics, what challenges arise, especially in a    production setting, and they introduce an innovative solution: the    rendezvous architecture. This new design for model management      is based on a streaming approach in a microservices style.                  Rendezvous addresses the need to preserve and share raw data,      to do effective model-to-model comparisons and to have new              models on standby, ready for a hot hand-off when a production model needs to be replaced.


In this book, you’ll learn:

  • Why successful machine learning projects involve many models
  • How to use a decoy model to capture exact data inputs
  • The capabilities needed in stream transport technology to support a stream-first microservice approach
  • How to do accurate model evaluation, including use of the t-Digest
  • Why a canary model is useful in a production setting
  • How to achieve rapid and seamless deployment of new models
  • The role of DataOps style of work and a global data fabric in making logistics for machine learning much easier
