NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru

The eighth edition of The Fifth Elephant will be held in Bangalore on 25 and 26 July. A thousand data scientists, ML engineers, data engineers and analysts will gather at the NIMHANS Convention Centre in Bangalore to discuss:

  1. Model management, including data cleaning, instrumentation and productionizing data science.
  2. Bad data and case studies of failure in building data products.
  3. Identifying and handling fraud + data security at scale
  4. Applications of data science in agriculture, media and marketing, supply chain, geo-location, SaaS and e-commerce.
  5. Feature engineering and ML platforms.
  6. What it takes to create data-driven cultures in organizations of different scales.

Highlights:

1. Meet Peter Wang, co-founder of Anaconda Inc, and learn about why data privacy is the first step towards robust data management; the journey of building Anaconda; and Anaconda in enterprise.
2. Talk to the Fulfillment and Supply Group (FSG) team from Flipkart, and learn about their work with platform engineering where ground truths are the source of data.
3. Attend tutorials on Deep Learning with RedisAI; TransmorgifyAI, Salesforce’s open source AutoML.
4. Discuss interesting problems to solve with data science in agriculture, SaaS perspective on multi-tenancy in Machine Learning (with the Freshworks team), bias in intent classification and recommendations.
5. Meet data science, data engineering and product teams from sponsoring companies to understand how they are handling data and leveraging intelligence from data to solve interesting problems.

Why you should attend?

  1. Network with peers and practitioners from the data ecosystem
  2. Share approaches to solving expensive problems such as cleanliness of training data, model management and versioning data
  3. Demo your ideas in the demo session
  4. Join Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions to have productive discussions on focussed topics. Or, start your own Birds of Feather (BOF) session.

Multi-tenancy in Machine learning (the SaaS perspective)

Submitted Jul 19, 2019

Given the emergence of several SaaS product companies in India, there’s a lot of recent interest in provisioning ML capabilities over the cloud; and enabling SaaS customers make use of such capabilites through a self-serve model. These SaaS customers should be able to tailor the ML capabilities on-the-fly to suit their needs, e.g. they should be able to adjust confidence thresholds of a virtual chat bot as a fuction of their inbound query volumes and satisfaction levels. They should also be able to plug in custom datasets pertaining to their business and train the ML models further. We also strive towards improving bootstrap performance, i.e. a customer should be able to do minimal work and start consuming these ML features over the cloud. We also provision feedback loops with-in our products, and manage the real-time infrastructure for consuming feedback from customers (and customers of customers) at scale.

Freshworks is one of the largest SaaS startups in the country which offers cloud-based ominchannel customer engagement software. We are integrating AI/ML capabilites across our software suite which spawns across functions such as marketing, sales, customer success and support. We face several challenges on a day-to-day basis which concerns with enabling multi-tenancy in ML. We will also be discussing a few case studies based on our experience.

Outline

Multi-tenant ML models - enabling self-serve of ML capabilities at scale
Customizable ML models - enabling customers to seamlessly tailor models to fit their needs
Vertical-specific models - training models at an industry-level, making ML features available to new customers from day 0
Learning from continuous feedback at scale
Case studies - Automation through Virtual assistants (chatbots, intent detection, lead scoring)
