Machine learning is certainly one of the hottest topics in software engineering today, but one aspect of this field demands more attention: how to serve models that have been trained. In conjunction with our partner O'Reilly, Lightbend is pleased to be able to offer you this expert guide to Machine Learning.
In a typical scenario, two different groups in an organiztion are responsible for model training and model serving. Data scientists often introduce their own machine-learning tools, causing software engineers to create complementary model-serving frameworks to keep pace. It’s not a very efficient system.
In this practical report, Boris Lublinsky, Principal Architect at Lightbend, demonstrates a more standardized approach to model serving and model scoring, introducing architectures for serving models in real time as part of input stream processing. You’ll explore:
