Before joining the group or attending any of our sessions please make sure to review our Code of Conduct (https://bit.ly/2uzRRvz).
The Azure Sydney User Group is here to help Sydney developers, engineers, architects and everyone in between better understand and benefit from the Microsoft Azure public cloud. We encourage all our members to present and aim to spread our sessions across the breadth of Azure, talking on both Developer and IT Pro topics.
Azure Machine Learning (Azure ML) - https://aka.ms/azureml/ - is a cloud-based service for building and operating machine learning solutions. Azure ML includes an array of tools and services designed to help data scientists and engineers leverage their existing data processing and model development skills and frameworks while benefiting from better lifecycle management via MLOps.
Join us in this session to learn some tips and tricks for productionising machine learning solutions using Azure ML.
We'll be hosting again on Teams, so if you'd like to join us, here's how you can - https://bit.ly/AzureSydneyUG-JoinUs - Please join our Teams tenant at least 24 hours prior to the event to avoid last minute challenges!
Our schedule for the evening currently looks like this:
5:30 - 5:35pm - Event Kick Off with BYOD (Bring Your Own Drink)!
5:35 - 5:55pm - What's new in Azure - Sam Alavi (Telstra Purple)
6:00 - 7:00pm - Productionising Machine Learning using Azure ML - Jacky Koh (Vector AI)
Main Session: Productionising Machine Learning using Azure ML
In this session, we will look at the challenges the Vector AI team faced in real-world scenarios in building their product and how they have used Azure ML to address them quickly. We will look at deployment of large machine learning models, scheduling, and delivery of large machine learning tasks as an endpoint which can serve millions of requests per day. There will also be demos including practical code examples of how Vector AI has utilised Azure ML to update, log and create these endpoints.
Jacky Koh is the founder of Vector AI (https://vctr.ai/) a machine learning company that is part of the Microsoft start-up program. Vector AI focused on unlocking the potential of data and retrieval systems through vectors, by making vector magical to use, understand and productionise for all companies and developers. He has been working with Azure since joining the program and building the Vector AI stack on Azure to serve 100 million+ requests per week.
