On data engineering and application of ML in diverse domains

Plumbing data science pipelines

Submitted May 22, 2017

Data - There is a lot of it . But organizing it can be challenging, and analysis/consumption cannot begin until data is aggregated and massaged into compatible formats. These challenges grow more difficult as your dataset increases and as your needs approach the fabled “real time” status. Here, we’ll talk about how Python can be leveraged to collect data that is organized from many sources, standardized for analysis and consumption, and parallelized to scale with volume.

The topics covered will be Machine Learning, Pipelines and Monitoring. So, here we are going to look at an example of an ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) platform using Celery Pipelines and ELK Stack.


The talk begins with a brief of Machine Learning and the common problems faced. Then we progress further to explain how we tackled the machine learning problem using celery pipelines and monitoring strategies.

There will be a basic showcase from our ETL workflow and some dashboards to explain monitoring using the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash,Kibana) and Monit.

We will be learning and understanding the performances of the following tech stack.

Simple Queue Service (SQS)
Elastic Cache (Redis)
AWS technologies - Redshift, S3
ELK Stack (Elastic Search, Logstash, Kibana)
