Machine Learning in Production
by Szilard Pafka

In this talk I will discuss the main steps involved in having machine learning models in production. No hype (“artificial intelligence”), no bullshitting and no marketing of expensive products (the best tools are all open source and free, you just need to know what you are doing).

Bio: Szilard has trained, deployed and maintained machine learning models in production (starting with random forests) since 2007. He’s a Chief Scientist and a Physics PhD with 20+ years experience with data, computing and modeling. He founded the first data meetup in LA in 2009 (by chance) and he has organized several data science events since.

We’ll also have a lightning talk (10-mins) before the main talk:
