Effective Modelling in the Cloud for Insurers and Banks, using Open Source Kubeflow

WHEN: Thursday 24 September  10:00 – 11:30

Building a robust machine learning (ML) software product is radically different from building traditional software. It involves different skill-sets, activities and workflows and hence it needs a whole new generation of supporting tools. Kubeflow is one of the key open source initiatives that address this pressing need and is gaining traction around the globe.
In this webinar we look at the benefits and pitfalls that arise out of building an ML production pipeline or real-time app on an Open Source, Kubernetes-based tool-stack with Kubeflow.
We will compare various strategies and operating models as well as show hands-on demos of our Credo YQ solution based approach.
This 1.5 hour webinar is offered free of charge and is aimed at anyone involved in developing, deploying or operating quantitative models at financial institutions: data scientists, data and DEVOPS engineers, risk managers, actuaries, ALM or asset management specialists
