[Cloud-Native AI] Machine Learning Workflows for Software Engineers

The capabilities of intelligent applications often seem like magic to users, but the machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques that enable these features are more accessible than you might think. Developing intelligent features doesn’t require esoteric math or high-performance hardware, but it does require you to start with data rather than with code and to adapt your existing engineering practice to build and manage predictive models in addition to conventional software artifacts.

This hands-on tutorial will introduce machine learning workflows and concepts in the context of a concrete problem and show you how to integrate them into the application development work you’re already doing, focusing on the habits and processes that will help you to get meaningful results from predictive models. We’ll work through a case study of a real application and you’ll leave having learned

* how to process, transform, and visualize data;
* how to train and evaluate predictive models,
* how the same build and test pipelines that support your software engineering work also enable putting machine learning in to practice,
* potential pitfalls of incorporating machine learning into your application -- as well as how to avoid them, and
* how OpenShift dramatically streamlines developing application intelligence.

You’ll do all of this while building models to solve a real problem and publishing them as microservices, all on a completely open-source stack.
