Package Management for Machine Learning Models

Description
Speaker

Guild AI is an open source toolkit that facilitates model reuse for application development by applying traditional software packaging constructs to the domain of machine learning.

Package management strategies are central to successful software ecosystems. Examples include npm for JavaScript, APT for Debian, and pip for Python. Such tools excel at creating traditional software packages. Machine learning applications,however, present unique requirements that call for tool specialization.

In this presentation, Garrett Smith discusses how Guild AI combines the proven effectiveness of package managers with novel features to enable model reuse for application development across a variety of use cases
