- Data Catalogs Are Dead; Long Live Data Discovery, by Debashis Saha & Barr Moses - Dec 28, 2020.
Why data catalogs aren’t meeting the needs of the modern data stack, and how a new approach – data discovery – is needed to better facilitate metadata management and data reliability.
- How to easily check if your Machine Learning model is fair?, by Jakub Wisniewski - Dec 24, 2020.
Machine learning models deployed today -- as will many more in the future -- impact people and society directly. With that power and influence resting in the hands of Data Scientists and machine learning engineers, taking the time to evaluate and understand if model results are fair will become the linchpin for the future success of AI/ML solutions. These are critical considerations, and using a recently developed fairness module in the dalex Python package is a unified and accessible way to ensure your models remain fair.
- Can you trust AutoML?, by Ioannis Tsamardinos - Dec 23, 2020.
Automated Machine Learning, or AutoML, tries hundreds or even thousands of different ML pipelines to deliver models that often beat the experts and win competitions. But, is this the ultimate goal? Can a model developed with this approach be trusted without guarantees of predictive performance? The issue of overfitting must be closely considered because these methods can lead to overestimation -- and the Winner's Curse.
- 5 strategies for enterprise machine learning for 2021, by Leah Kolben - Dec 22, 2020.
While it is important for enterprises to continue solving the past challenges in a machine learning pipeline (manage, monitor, track experiments and models) in 2021 enterprises should focus on strategies to achieve scalability, elasticity and operationalization of machine learning.
- MLOps Is Changing How Machine Learning Models Are Developed, by Henrik Skogstrom - Dec 21, 2020.
Delivering machine learning solutions is so much more than the model. Three key concepts covering version control, testing, and pipelines are the foundation for machine learning operations (MLOps) that help data science teams ship models quicker and with more confidence.
- MLOps – “Why is it required?” and “What it is”?, by Bose & Aggarwal - Dec 18, 2020.
Creating an model that works well is only a small aspect of delivering real machine learning solutions. Learn about the motivation behind MLOps, the framework and its components that will help you get your ML model into production, and its relation to DevOps from the world of traditional software development.
- Navigate the road to Responsible AI, by Ben Lorica - Dec 18, 2020.

- Covid or just a Cough? AI for detecting COVID-19 from Cough Sounds, by Ramesh & Teki - Dec 15, 2020.
Increased capabilities in screening and early testing for a disease can significantly support quelling its spread and impact. Recent progress in developing deep learning AI models to classify cough sounds as a prescreening tool for COVID-19 has demonstrated promising early success. Cough-based diagnosis is non-invasive, cost-effective, scalable, and, if approved, could be a potential game-changer in our fight against COVID-19.
