Putting Machine Learning Models into Production

Categories: AI and Machine Learning Cloudera Data Science Workbench Spark

Once the data science is done (and you know where your data comes from, what it looks like, and what it can predict) comes the next big step: you now have to put your model into production and make it useful for the rest of the business. This is the start of the model operations life cycle. The key focus areas (detailed in the diagram below) are usually managed by machine learning engineers after the data scientists have done their work.

Visual Model Interpretability for Telco Churn in Cloudera Data Science Workbench

Categories: CDH Cloudera Data Science Workbench Fast Forward Labs Spark

Disclaimer: the scenario below is hypothetical.   Any similarity to any specific telecommunications company is purely coincidental.  

Although we use the example of a telecommunications company the following applies to every organization with customers or voluntary stakeholders.  

Introduction

Imagine that you are a Chief Data Officer at a major telecommunications provider and the CEO has asked you to overhaul the existing customer churn analytics.  The current process relies on manual export of data from dozens of data sources including ERP,

New in Cloudera Data Science Workbench 1.2: Usage Monitoring for Administrators

Categories: CDH Cloudera Data Science Workbench Data Science Performance

Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) provides data science teams with a self-service platform for quickly developing machine learning workloads in their preferred language, with secure access to enterprise data and simple provisioning of compute. Individuals can request schedulable resources (e.g. compute, memory, GPUs) on a shared cluster that is managed centrally.

While self-service provisioning of resources is critical to the rapid interaction cycle of data scientists, it can pose a challenge to administrators.

Deep learning with Apache MXNet on Cloudera Data Science Workbench

Categories: CDH Cloudera Data Science Workbench Data Science

With the abundance of deep learning frameworks available today, it can be difficult to know what to choose for any particular application. Given the contrasting strengths and weaknesses of these frameworks, the ability to work with and switch between more than one is particularly important. Recent Cloudera blogs have shown how examples of applying deep learning on the Cloudera ecosystem using popular frameworks Deeplearning4j, BigDL, and Keras+TensorFlow.
