Reliable ML

By applying an SRE mindset to machine learning, authors and engineering professionals Cathy Chen, Kranti Parisa, Niall Richard Murphy, D. Sculley, Todd Underwood, and featured guest authors show you how to run an efficient and reliable ML system. Whether you want to increase revenue, optimize decision-making, solve problems, or understand and influence customer behavior, you'll learn how to perform day-to-day ML tasks while keeping the bigger picture in mind. (Book description from O'Reilly) It was great that they wrote this book in the first place in a space that's new and lots of people are entering with a lot of questions and this book clarifies those questions. It was also great to have all of their experiences documented in this one book and there's a lot of value in putting them all in one place so that people can benefit from it.
