Accelerating NLP Model Training and Deployment with PyTorch

Talk | NLP | AI for Manufacturing | Beginner-Intermediate

 

NLP models are big – they take a lot of time and money to train and can be hard to deploy. You’re going to want all the help you can get to reduce costs, improve agility, and enable production deployments. In this session you’ll see how massive scale products like Microsoft Office are using PyTorch, ONNX Runtime, and Azure Machine Learning to significantly accelerate their training and inferencing to increase agility and reduce costs. You’ll learn how you can do the same for your own NLP scenariosmore details

Value of Analytics is in Consumption – Operationalize It

Demo Talk | Research Frontiers | AI Research | All Levels

 

Deployment, the “last mile” of analytics, remains a formidable challenge. Having said that some of the world’s leading technology firms that specialize in Analytics and Decisioning, are investing heavily in their R&D to build unified platforms that will manage the complete Analytics Life Cycle. Coupled with synergizing Data Access & Data Governance Technologies and related business processes and workflows, these companies are helping address exactly the challenge stated above. So today, friends, I will primarily talk about the “Last Mile” challenge and also discuss how SAS has been helping address this problem, for the developer and data science community at large, both Open Source and SAS. I will walk you through the full Analytics Life Cycle (build🡪 compare🡪 publish🡪govern🡪 consume), and time permitting showcase a small demonstration of the samemore details
