Cloud computing experts from Cloud Academy, Inc., the leading provider of continuous training and certification for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, will be speaking at upcoming industry conferences that focus on cloud computing and serverless architectures.

On Saturday, September 30, 2016, Cloud Academy senior software engineer Alex Casalboni will be giving a talk entitled “Building Serverless Machine Learning Models in The Cloud” at the ServerlessConf in Tokyo, Japan. The session will take place from 5:00-6:00 PM local time on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at Tabloid , 2 Chome-6-24 Kaigan, Minato, Tokyo 105-0022.

The session will describe the main challenges faced by data scientists involved in deploying machine learning models into real production environments. It will include references and examples of Python libraries and multi-model systems requiring advanced features such as A/B testing and high scalability and availability. While discussing the limitations of traditional deployment strategies, Casalboni will demonstrate how serverless computing can simplify a deployment workflow.
