Mystery Cloud Theater 2000 ... and 20 - A Starbucks Viewing

Mystery Cloud Theater 2000 ... and 20 (with apologies to MST3K) How Starbucks is Achieving Enterprise Data and ML at Scale - and - Operationalizing Machine Learning at Scale Join the CU Cloud Computing Platform User Group Thursday, August 13 at 12:00 PM via Zoom. Keep your Zoom chat open during the Noon hour so that we can all share trenchant observations as we watch two recent videos about cloud computing at Starbucks. After the videos conclude, we’ll have open discussion about the topics addressed. These videos from Spark + AI Summit 2020 provide a substantial overview of cloud-based data/AI/ML work at Starbucks. Moreover, they provide a window into what tools are used at different phases of what might be called the MLOps (machine learning operations) lifecycle, including deployment to production.
