Join us for two talks to help you solve operationalisation, one of the toughest challenges in data science! Guest speakers Jan Teichmann (Senior Data Scientist, Zoopla) and Steve Franks (Solutions Architect, Dataiku) will share best practices and answer your questions around pizza & beer.
Talk 1: The Operationalisation Fairy Tale by Steve Franks, Solutions Architect at Dataiku
Steve Franks, Solutions Architect at Dataiku, reviews the key requirements to keep in mind when working on your design-to-deployment pipeline, and underline the specificities of data science projects. Are the type of skills, which are required to build the model, those that you need to deliver great business value?
Talk 2: Machine Learning Logistics: Model Management in Production from the Front Line
Making data science a success is hard, with up to 85% of projects and initiatives around big data and data science failing according to Gartner. The reasons are complex but often misunderstood. What is so different about data science that it needs new approaches?
Jan will introduce the unique data science requirements and the Rendezvous Architecture, a proven solution to integrate data science and enterprise requirements in a harmonious way at scale.
