Kubeflow for Machine Learning: From Lab to Production
Grant, Trevor, Karau, Holden, Lublinsky, Boris
If you're training a machine learning model but aren't sure how to put it into production, this book will get you there. Kubeflow provides a collection of cloud native tools for different stages of a model's lifecycle, from data exploration, feature preparation, and model training to model serving. This guide helps data scientists build production-grade machine learning implementations with Kubeflow and shows data engineers how to make models scalable and reliable.
Using examples throughout the book, authors Holden Karau, Trevor Grant, Ilan Filonenko, Richard Liu, and Boris Lublinsky explain how to use Kubeflow to train and serve your machine learning models on top of Kubernetes in the cloud or in a development environment on-premises.
- Understand Kubeflow's design, core components, and the problems it solves
- Learn how to set up Kubeflow on a cloud provider or on an in-house cluster
- Train models using Kubeflow with popular tools including scikit-learn, TensorFlow, and Apache Spark
- Learn how to add custom stages such as serving and prediction
- Keep your model up-to-date with Kubeflow Pipelines
- Understand how to validate machine learning pipelines
Trevor Grant is a member of the Apache Software Foundation, and is heavily involved in the Apache Mahout, Apache Streams, and Community Development projects. He often tinkers and occasionally documents his (mis)adventures at www.rawkintrevo.org. In the before time, he was an international speaker on technology, but now he focuses mainly on writing. Trevor wishes to thank IBM for their continued patronage of his artistic endeavors. He lives in Chicago because it's the best city on the planet, with world class food, parks, and culture, and because the skies are never orange.
Holden Karau is a queer transgender Canadian, Apache Spark committer, Apache Software Foundation member, and an active open source contributor. She also extends her passion for building community with industry projects including Scaling for Python for ML and teaching distributed computing to children. As a software engineer, she's worked on a variety of distributed compute, search, and classification problems at Google, IBM, Alpine, Databricks, Foursquare, and Amazon. She graduated from the University of Waterloo with a bachelor of mathematics in computer science. Outside of software she enjoys playing with fire, welding, riding scooters, eating poutine, and dancing.
Boris Lublinsky is a Principal Architect at Lightbend. Boris has over 25 years experience in enterprise, technical architecture, and software engineering. He is an active member of OASIS SOA RM committee, co-author of Applied SOA: Service-Oriented Architecture and Design Strategies (Wiley) and author of numerous articles on Architecture, Programming, Big Data, SOA and BPM.
Richard Liu is a Senior Software Engineer at Waymo, where he focuses on building a machine learning platform for self-driving cars. Previously he has worked at Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. He is one of the primary maintainers of the Kubeflow project and has given several talks at KubeCon. He holds a Master's degree in Computer Science from University of California, San Diego.
Ilan Filonenko is a member of the Data Science Infrastructure team at Bloomberg, where he has designed and implemented distributed systems at both the application and infrastructure level. Previously, Ilan was an engineering consultant and technical lead in various startups and research divisions across multiple industry verticals, including medicine, hospitality, finance, and music. He actively contributes to open source, primarily Apache Spark and Kubeflow's KFServing. He is one of the principal contributors to Spark on Kubernetes--primarily focusing on remote shuffle and HDFS security, and to multimodel serving in KFServing. Ilan's research has been in algorithmic, software, and hardware techniques for high-performance machine learning with a focus on optimizing stochastic algorithms and model management.
