Open Source Meets HPE: A Convergence of Innovation in AI


Open source is constantly evolving to drive innovation in the ML and AI ecosystems. As ML and AI users, data engineers and data scientists, you're often faced with the decision of whether to build or buy the tools for your ML and AI workloads. In this talk, we'll explore how open-source platforms empower HPE to collaborate and customize our approach to help users with the unique challenges they face and consistently achieve optimal results.

We'll take a look at the HPE Software that is built by integrating popular open source ML and AI tools that users are often building and managing themselves. These tools help streamline complex processes and promote collaboration, revolutionizing HPE's approach to data science. With open-source integration, we can create end-to-end solutions for data, analytics, and AI. From diverse, distributed multi-format data to data preparation, model training, tuning, deployment, and monitoring, we'll cover the entire AI lifecycle.

Join us as we explore how these powerful open source tools reshape the way we work, turning raw data into actionable insights faster than ever before. For data engineers and data scientists, this seamless journey empowers you to make a real impact in your organizations. Whether you're building or buying, let's unlock the full potential of open source and revolutionize the ML and AI ecosystem together.

Session Outline:

That building or buying your AI and ML tools comes with pros and cons. While this is NOT a product pitch it's to highlight there are many platforms out there that are integrating popular open source tools to create a platform for data scientist and data engineers. We want the audience to know what to look for and how to decide whether they want to build vs. buy.


Amber began her personal journey into open source in 2009 when she started sharing her insights on Ubuntu through her blog. Over the years, she has contributed to the Ubuntu User Magazine, co-authored The Official Ubuntu Book, and served as a technical reviewer for Jono Bacon's, Art of Community. Amber's leadership was demonstrated as the inaugural Community Manager for Linaro and later in managing the Open Compute Project (OCP) Foundation Community. She also led community engagement for the Zeek Project and served as VP of Community and Marketing at Arrikto. Currently, she advocates for open source as an Evangelist and Community Manager for HPE, Ezmeral Software.

Amber excels in navigating open-source communities, particularly in enterprise-level solutions based on third-party trademarks. With a passion for mentoring rising leaders and fostering inclusivity, she encourages active participation and knowledge expansion in open-source software and hardware. With a smile and sense of humor, Amber reminds everyone that the open-source community welcomes all skill levels. Continuously exploring the ecosystem, she inspires others to commit to and engage in all aspects of open-source.
