Designing an ML Minded Product and a Product Minded ML System with Grace Huang

Creating a real-world machine learning product requires considerations beyond implementation of the machine learning algorithms itself. For example, very often the production environment is a constantly shifting data landscape. A well tested, carefully constructed model can become stale in a matter of days or even hours when data distribution drifts over time. In addition, a sustainable machine learning system needs to run on a healthy data ecosystem where bias is removed or accounted for as much as possible. Finally, evaluating, A/B testing, and launching machine learning product requires considerations very different from conventional product features.

In this webinar, we will share a few lessons learned from designing and maintaining a machine learning-minded product, and a product-minded machine learning system.
