Model as a Service up and running in AWS - Lia Bifano (Nubank)

Predictive models has significant leverage in business value, such as finding the right product faster to a client, understanding customer behavior, personalizing customer service, among others. However if they aren’t deployed in a productive environment that allows to take decisions quickly, they might become useless. Besides that, it is important create an infrastructure that is possible retrain fast and supports A/B tests. The goal of this presentation is give a overview of best practices and show from scratch how a trained model can be deployed as a service in AWS. 
At the end of this presentation you’ll know what are the steps to deploy a model in AWS and we’ll walkthrough in reproducible scripts that deploys the model using docker and AWS command line clients. And of course, all the code is available in GitHub.
