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.

Summary

In this chapter, we discussed several advanced ML engineering topics, including distributed training for large-scale datasets and large models, as well as techniques and options for achieving low latency inference. Now, you should be able to talk about how data parallelism and model parallelism work, as well as the various technology options, such as the PyTorch distributed library and SageMaker Distributed Training library, for running data parallel and model parallel distribution training. You should also be able to talk about the different techniques you can use for model optimization to reduce model inference latency, as well as the model compiler tools for automated model optimization.

In the next chapter, we will talk about security and governance in ML.
