Most of the machine learning is focused on building models. But productionizing machine learning takes more than building a model. We need to figure out train the model at scale, how to effectively use GPU and Cloud technologies. And finally how to test, deploy and monitor models.

This series will focus on Machine Learning Engineering (MLE) and DevOps.

This series is organized as weekly sessions.  Each session is independent.  So you can pick and choose which sessions you want to attend.

This is part of our Learning Series.

This is a live, instructor-led, virtual class.

Can’t attend a live class?
No worries.  Sign up and we will email you recordings once they are ready.
