IT decision makers now face an unprecedented challenge — and opportunity — to help their organization build a one-to-one relationship with customers and gain actionable insights. Machine learning and deep learning technologies that were previously reserved for companies such as Google and Amazon are now open-source. But open source machine learning is a fast moving target, with game-changing developments even in the six months since PAPIs 2015. To follow on from my talk in Sydney about our journey taking Seldon from a closed predictive API to an open source machine learning platform, I will provide fresh insight with applied examples to help decision makers stay in control, and identify opportunities for value creation.
