Abstract: Our surveys of enterprise machine learning specialists reveal that at least half of organizations believe their technology infrastructure isn’t prepared for the future demands that will be placed on it by the adoption of AI and machine learning at scale. They face challenges up and down the stack, from silicon, through storage, networking and compute bottlenecks as well as the key decisions around best execution venue – on-premises, in the cloud or hybrid. In this session Nick will examine why AI puts strains on infrastructure and how it can be overcome.
