"Doing large scale ML in production is hard" – Everyone who's tried
This talk is focussed on ML Systems. Especially the less obvious pitfalls, which have caused us troubles at Spotify.
This talk assumes a certain level of familiarity with ML: You'll get the most out of if you've some experience with applied ML, ideally on production systems.
