Scalable Machine Learning with PyTorch, Kubeflow and Kubernetes

Track: Artificial Intelligence
Abstract
In the dynamic world of machine learning, data scientists and engineers face a constant challenge to design, train, and deploy models at scale while maintaining flexibility and reproducibility. PyTorch, a popular deep learning framework, Kubeflow, an advanced machine learning platform built on Kubernetes, and Kubernetes, a leading container orchestration system, have emerged as a triumphant trio to tackle these complex demands. With Kubeflow, data teams can effortlessly manage distributed training, hyperparameter tuning, and model serving, leveraging the scalability and fault tolerance of Kubernetes. This talk will explore the seamless integration of PyTorch with Kubeflow over Kubernetes orchestration platform to efficiently design and train models on any scale. To begin, we will provide an overview of PyTorch, highlighting its strengths in building dynamic and efficient deep learning models. Next, we will delve into Kubeflow's core capabilities, elucidating how it extends Kubernetes to orchestrate end-to-end machine learning workflows.
