Automated Machine Learning
A tremendous backlog of predictive modeling problems in the industry and short supply of trained data scientists have spiked interest in automation over the last few years. A new academic field, AutoML, has emerged. However, there is a significant gap between the topics that are academically interesting and automation capabilities that are necessary to solve real-world industrial problems end-to-end. An even greater challenge is enabling a non-expert to build a robust and trustworthy AI solution for their company. In this talk, we’ll discuss what an industry-grade AutoML system consists of and the scientific and engineering challenges of building it.
