Abstract: Most of the organizations today use multiple technologies and platforms to develop (and deploy) AI/ML models based on choices and skills of data scientists in different groups. However, while operationalizing those models it is important to still maintain common standards for legal compliance, audit requirements and assurance of overall business value. These requirements run across the areas of Independent Validation of Models; Continuous Monitoring of Model Performance (Accuracy, Bias, Drift, etc) in Production; Model Interpretability; Controlled sourcing and reuse of Data, Features and Packages; Model Facts; Approval steps in Model Lifecycle; Change Management, etc. In this session we shall see how models developed and deployed in Heterogeneous platforms can be still Operationalized keeping above requirements fulfilled but customized based on an organization’s governance requirements. We shall see how Open Source and IBM technologies, can be used to achieve the same with necessary customization. In this session, attendees would also learn the technology agnostic key principles that can be used to handle the above mentioned Governance requirements for Operationalization of AI/ML models developed/deployed in heterogeneous platforms.
