Don't Let Your ML Models Decay!

Bastien  Boutonnet Bastien Boutonnet | Lead Data Scientist | Soda

When data pipelines feed into machine learning models, data issues can occur that remain silent and undetected. Your machine learning model will never email you to alert you that “the data looks wrong”; it will just keep operating on data that isn’t up-to-date with the real world. Since the relationships from which machine learning models learn inevitably change over time, not noticing those issues generally cause models to decay.
In this presentation we will show you how you can detect and prevent model drift and ensure that your machine learning models don’t start degrading and failing once you put them into production, using a tried-and-tested framework to get ahead of silent data issues, before they have a major downstream impact on the business.
We’ll examine the common types of model drift and participants will learn how to detect, analyze, and manage model drift to ensure that their machine learning models are running reliably and efficiently in production. to deliver trusted data to the business using a (built or bought) data monitoring platform.
