Machine Learning in R Part IV: Putting R-Based Machine Learning into Production with Plumber and Docker

Abstract: 

After we build various machine learning models we need to make them accessible to others. We use modeldb so we can store models in a database and plumber to expose our model as a REST API that can be hosted in a Docker container.
