Moving Deep Learning from Research to Production with Determined and Kubeflow

Translating the research that goes in to creating a great deep learning model into a production application is a mess without the right tools. ML models have a lot of moving pieces, and on top of that models are constantly evolving as new data arrives or the model is tweaked. In this talk, we'll show how you can find order in that chaos by using the Determined Model Registry along with Kubeflow Pipelines.


- What components are needed to do inference in ML - How to structure models for ML inference - How a model registry helps organize your models for easy consumption - How you can set up reusable and easy-to-upgrade inference pipelines
