Scaling Machine Learning at Holiday Extras

Wednesday 13 November 2019


This talk will describe how the data science team at Holiday Extras are using Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine to deploy models in production. I will be discussing how using Google Cloud machine learning tools can help to democratise data science at scale by allowing data scientists to put models into production independently. Some of the challenges we faced as a small team of data scientists were managing bespoke deployment processes for models, a lack of collaboration across the team and difficulty in finding the right combination of skills to deploy and manage models in operation. Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine has been the impetus for a fully extensible and collaborative machine learning platform and has allowed Holiday Extras to deploy models at speed and scale.
