The Challenges of ML Operations and How Hermione Helped on the Way

In Neylson's experience with Machine Learning projects, his team and encountered a series of challenges regarding agile processes to build and deploy ML models in a professional teamwork environment. In the path, they developed some of their own solutions to these challenges that were packaged in a library, an ML project structure framework called Hermione. In this episode, We talked about these challenges, what they did to overcome them and how did Hermione help on the way. Neylson also did a demo on how to build an ML project with Hermione.
