Overview of this book

Social networking sites see an average of 350 million uploads daily - a quantity impossible for humans to scan and analyze. Only AI can do this job at the required speed, and to leverage an AI application at its full potential, you need an efficient and scalable data storage pipeline. The Artificial Intelligence Infrastructure Workshop will teach you how to build and manage one. The Artificial Intelligence Infrastructure Workshop begins taking you through some real-world applications of AI. You’ll explore the layers of a data lake and get to grips with security, scalability, and maintainability. With the help of hands-on exercises, you’ll learn how to define the requirements for AI applications in your organization. This AI book will show you how to select a database for your system and run common queries on databases such as MySQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra. You’ll also design your own AI trading system to get a feel of the pipeline-based architecture. As you learn to implement a deep Q-learning algorithm to play the CartPole game, you’ll gain hands-on experience with PyTorch. Finally, you’ll explore ways to run machine learning models in production as part of an AI application. By the end of the book, you’ll have learned how to build and deploy your own AI software at scale, using various tools, API frameworks, and serialization methods.

4. The Ethics of AI Data Storage


Building systems without a design is like trying to build a house without a plan. It might seem like you can just start putting bricks together, but in reality, you need a plan. In this chapter, we looked at the importance of system design. We also showed you how system design can help with many different aspects, including early detection of issues, agreement between key stakeholders on features, and communication between different experts collaborating on one system. We built our modular pipeline-based system to make stock trading decisions based on news about companies. We then saw how adding queues to a pipeline system can increase availability, and we rebuilt another mock of our trading platform using queues and learned how queues could store work for a component that is not yet ready to process it. This pipeline design will be expanded upon in the next chapter.

In the next chapter, you will explore the pipeline concept even further through workflow management platforms...
