Convert Your Unstructured Data To Embedding Vectors For More Efficient Machine Learning With Towhee

Data is one of the core ingredients for machine learning, but the format in which it is understandable to humans is not a useful representation for models. Embedding vectors are a way to structure data in a way that is native to how models interpret and manipulate information. In this episode Frank Liu shares how the Towhee library simplifies the work of translating your unstructured data assets (e.g. images, audio, video, etc.) into embeddings that you can use efficiently for machine learning, and how it fits into your workflow for model development.

Shedding Light On Silent Model Failures With NannyML

Because machine learning models are constantly interacting with inputs from the real world they are subject to a wide variety of failures. The most commonly discussed error condition is concept drift, but there are numerous other ways that things can go wrong. In this episode Wojtek Kuberski explains how NannyML is designed to compare the predicted performance of your model against its actual behavior to identify silent failures and provide context to allow you to determine whether and how urgently to address them.

How To Design And Build Machine Learning Systems For Reasonable Scale

Using machine learning in production requires a sophisticated set of cooperating technologies. A majority of resources that are available for understanding how to design and operate these platforms are focused on either simple examples that don't scale, or over-engineered technologies designed for the massive scale of big tech companies. In this episode Jacopo Tagliabue shares his vision for "ML at reasonable scale" and how you can adopt these patterns for building your own platforms.

Update Your Model’s View Of The World In Real Time With Streaming Machine Learning Using River

The majority of machine learning projects that you read about or work on are built around batch processes. The model is trained, and then validated, and then deployed, with each step being a discrete and isolated task. Unfortunately, the real world is rarely static, leading to concept drift and model failures. River is a framework for building streaming machine learning projects that can constantly adapt to new information. In this episode Max Halford explains how the project works, why you might (or might not) want to consider streaming ML, and how to get started building with River.
