It's Launched! Why do I need to continuously benchmark and monitor my computer vision model?

Submitted Jun 14, 2019

Open source models like Imagenet and Resnet have opened the door to enable millions of computer vision use cases. But launching enterprise computer vision application doesn’t end when the model is trained - that’s just the first step. To build an end-to-end solution, one needs to understand the appropriate steps and best practices to follow.

If you are planning to build and launch a computer vision application, you need to consider what happens to the ML model after it has reached a level of accuracy and performance for your use case. How exactly are you going to architect your application software? How are you going to deploy and scale models to potentially hundreds or thousands of devices in production? How do you extract useful information from the models for retraining? Where do you store the results and metrics of the predictions? Is your application mission critical, or can the model be run offline? How do you setup a vision ML pipeline that doesn’t break the bank or require an army of engineers and computer vision experts to maintain?

In this presentation, Dori will focus specifically on challenges that every enterprise application developer will face when building a computer vision application and how to set the enterprise up for success. The talk will draw from previous examples of how typical software pipelines have been set up and demonstrate the best practices to quickly build machine learning computer vision pipelines that can scale to millions of deployments. The talk will also cover best practices of how to effectively benchmark and monitor your machine learning model in order to continuously improve the quality and system performance.
