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.

TuneIn: How to get your jobs tuned while sleeping

Submitted Sep 19, 2018

Have you ever tuned a Spark, Hive or Pig job? If yes, then you must know that it is a never ending cycle of executing the job, observing the running job, making sense out of hundreds of Spark/Hadoop metrics and then re-run it with the better parameters. Imagine doing this for tens of thousands of jobs. Manually doing performance optimization at this scale is tedious, requires significant expertise and results into wasting a lot of resources to do the same task repeatedly. As Spark/Hadoop is the natural choice for any data processing, with many naive users, it becomes important to develop a tool to automatically tune Spark/Hadoop jobs.

At LinkedIn we tried to solve the problem using Dr. Elephant, an open-sourced self-serve performance monitoring and tuning tool for Spark and Hadoop jobs. While it has proved to be very successful, it relies on the developer’s initiative to check and apply the recommendation manually. It also expects some expertise from developers to arrive at the optimal configuration using the recommendations.

In this talk we will discuss TuneIn, an Auto Tuning tool developed on top of Dr. Elephant, which overcomes the above mentioned limitations. We will describe how we took the best of various approaches taken by industry and academia, so far to solve this problem to come up with a framework, which doesn’t require any extra resources for tuning. We will discuss two approaches of auto tuning jobs, Heuristics Based Tuning and Optimization Based Tuning. We will also talk about tuning framework, which is easily extendable to integrate different approaches (Machine Learning Based Tuning) and execution frameworks (TensorFlow). We will also talk about the lessons learned and the future roadmap.
