The Machine Learning Solutions Architect Handbook

By: David Ping

Overview of this book

When equipped with a highly scalable machine learning (ML) platform, organizations can quickly scale the delivery of ML products for faster business value realization. There is a huge demand for skilled ML solutions architects in different industries, and this handbook will help you master the design patterns, architectural considerations, and the latest technology insights you’ll need to become one. You’ll start by understanding ML fundamentals and how ML can be applied to solve real-world business problems. Once you've explored a few leading problem-solving ML algorithms, this book will help you tackle data management and get the most out of ML libraries such as TensorFlow and PyTorch. Using open source technology such as Kubernetes/Kubeflow to build a data science environment and ML pipelines will be covered next, before moving on to building an enterprise ML architecture using Amazon Web Services (AWS). You’ll also learn about security and governance considerations, advanced ML engineering techniques, and how to apply bias detection, explainability, and privacy in ML model development. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to design and build an ML platform to support common use cases and architecture patterns like a true professional.
Table of Contents (17 chapters)
Section 1: Solving Business Challenges with Machine Learning Solution Architecture
Section 2: The Science, Tools, and Infrastructure Platform for Machine Learning
Section 3: Technical Architecture Design and Regulatory Considerations for Enterprise ML Platforms


In this chapter, we discussed the key requirements for building an enterprise ML platform to meet needs such as end-to-end ML life cycle support, process automation, and separating different environments. We also talked about architecture patterns and how to build an enterprise ML platform on AWS using AWS services. We discussed the core capabilities of different ML environments, including training, hosting, and shared services. You should now have a good understanding of what an enterprise ML platform could look like, as well as the key considerations for building one using AWS services. You have also developed some hands-on experience in building the components of the MLOps architecture and automating model training and deployment. In the next chapter, we will discuss advanced ML engineering by covering large-scale distributed training and the core concepts for achieving low-latency inference.
