Kubeflow and MLOps Meetup Recap – Nov 2021

Kubeflow and MLOps Meetup

Last week we hosted our third “Data Science, Machine Learning and Kubeflow” Meetup. Special thanks to our speaker Noelle Silver. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the Meetup and preview what’s next. Ok, let’s dig in.

Thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

With the unprecedented circumstances facing our global community, Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give Meetup attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this month’s Meetup voting was Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian group dedicated to providing medical care to people in distress, including victims of political violence and natural disasters. We are pleased to be making a donation of $250 to them on behalf of the Kubeflow community. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!

AI/ML on OpenShift: Operationalizing Models the Red Hat Way

Data Scientists know the challenges of scale, reproducibility, dealing with on-premise and cloud data silos, plus inconsistent deployments across environments. In this talk, Noelle Silver, AI/ML Specialist at Red Hat, shows us how open source has played a key role in solving these issues for agile software development, especially with DevSecOps. So, how we can now start applying these learnings to principled “Machine Learning Model Operationalization Management” practices at scale? If you are interested in learning exactly what “MLOps” entails and how to scale, a data pipeline built on OpenShift Cloud Services to reduce compute latency, and facilitate CI/CD for time-sensitive imaging and diagnostics…this is the talk for you!

Introduction to Kubeflow: Workflows, Central Dashboard, Add-ons

In this impromptu talk, Jimmy Guerrero (VP Developer Relations at Arrikto) does a quick walk through of the Kubeflow central dashboard along with several add-ons including Kale and Rok.
