TWIMLcon - AI Platforms Conference - Oct 1 & 2 - San Francisco - 20% OFF!

Mission Bay Conference Center

RSVP: https://twimlcon.com/register/ Use SPARKMU20 to get 20% off! I want to share with you a new conference focused on the platforms, tools, technologies, and practices necessary to enable and scale machine learning and AI in the enterprise. It’s called TWIMLcon: AI Platforms, to be held October 1-2,, 2019 at Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, CA. I will be attending, and believe your participation in the Summit would be beneficial. I am pleased to provide you with a discount code, applicable for a full access pass to the conference. About TWIMLcon: AI Platforms TWIMLcon will offer real world, practical discussions that help you grow your knowledge, skills and career, plus great opportunities to share, learn and connect with a community of like minded data science, machine learning, platform engineering and MLOps practitioners and leaders. Some of the topics include: Overcoming the barriers to getting ML and DL models into production How to apply ideas like AutoML, MLOps and DevOps to your machine learning workflow Experiences and lessons learned in delivering platform and infrastructure support for data management, experiment management, and model deployment Platform deployment stories from leading tech companies and traditional enterprises Organizational and cultural best practices for success TWIMLcon: AI Platforms is brought to you by the team behind the TWIML AI Podcast (a.k.a. This Week in Machine Learning & AI). The conference has its roots in a series of interviews on the topic of AI Platforms published back in the fall of 2018. The series—which featured interviews with ML Platforms and Infrastructure engineers and leaders from Facebook, Airbnb, LinkedIn, OpenAI, Shell and Comcast—resonated very strongly with listeners and remains one of our most popular series to this day. We hope you’ll join us for what is shaping up to be an important community event. RSVP: https://twimlcon.com/register/ Use SPARKMU20 to get 20% off!

Online Workshop - See Details Below

**Title** Hands-on Learning with KubeFlow + Keras/TensorFlow 2.0 + TF Extended (TFX) + Kubernetes + PyTorch + XGBoost + Airflow + MLflow + Spark + Jupyter + TPU RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/full-day-workshop-kubeflow-kerastensorflow-20-tf-extended-tfx-kubernetes-pytorch-xgboost-airflow-tickets-63362929227 **Description** In this workshop, we build real-world machine learning pipelines using TensorFlow Extended (TFX), KubeFlow, and Airflow. Described in the 2017 paper, TFX is used internally by thousands of Google data scientists and engineers across every major product line within Google. KubeFlow is a modern, end-to-end pipeline orchestration framework that embraces the latest AI best practices including hyper-parameter tuning, distributed model training, and model tracking. Airflow is the most-widely used pipeline orchestration framework in machine learning. **Pre-requisites** Modern browser - and that's it! Every attendee will receive a cloud instance Nothing will be installed on your local laptop Everything can be downloaded at the end of the workshop **Location** Online **Agenda** 1. Create a Kubernetes cluster 2. Install KubeFlow, Airflow, TFX, and Jupyter 3. Setup ML Training Pipelines with KubeFlow and Airflow 4. Transform Data with TFX Transform 5. Validate Training Data with TFX Data Validation 6. Train Models with Jupyter, Keras/TensorFlow 2.0, PyTorch, XGBoost, and KubeFlow 7. Run a Notebook Directly on Kubernetes Cluster with KubeFlow 8. Analyze Models using TFX Model Analysis and Jupyter 9. Perform Hyper-Parameter Tuning with KubeFlow 10. Select the Best Model using KubeFlow Experiment Tracking 11. Reproduce Model Training with TFX Metadata Store and Pachyderm 12. Deploy the Model to Production with TensorFlow Serving and Istio 13. Save and Download your Workspace **Key Takeaways** Attendees will gain experience training, analyzing, and serving real-world Keras/TensorFlow 2.0 models in production using modern frameworks and open-source tools.
