Applied Machine Learning: a Netflix production

Applied Machine Learning is about as mature as Software Engineering circa 1998. For Data Scientists, it’s hard to collaborate, hard to be productive and hard to deploy to production. In the last 20 years, Software Engineers have become far more collaborative thanks to tools like git, far more productive thanks to cloud computing and far more effective at delivering quality software thanks to CI/CD and agile development practices. At Netflix, I get to work on problems like: how do we scale Data Science innovation by making collaboration effortless? How do we enable Data Scientists to single-handedly and reliably introduce their models to production? How do we make it easy to develop ML models that humans trust? More importantly, how do we use ML to make humans BETTER? In this talk, we’ll explore how Netflix is approaching these problems to further our mission of creating joy for our 125 Million+ members worldwide!
