How to present machine learning model performance as actionable insights to Business.

Machine Learning and Deep Learning have been some of the most revolutionary technologies of our generation and have the potential to radically redefine our way of life. With this much hype surrounding a technical stack, it can often take a life of its own and it is very easy to forget that at the end of the day it is just another tool to add value to our businesses that serve the customer at its center.

I have been working at one of the largest banks in the world for over 2 years now as a Machine Learning Engineer, and…

Hands-On Guide to implement real-time object detection system using python

Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), Paris, May-July 1887 (source)

The Self-Driving car might still be having difficulties understanding the difference between humans and garbage can, but that does not take anything away from the amazing progress state-of-the-art object detection models have made in the last decade.

Combine that with the image processing abilities of libraries like OpenCV, it is much easier today to build a real-time object detection system prototype in hours. In this guide, I will try to show you how to develop sub-systems that go into a simple object detection application and how to put all of that together.

Python vs C++

I know some of you might be thinking…

How to deploy your model using AWS lambda and REST API for the world to use.

Starry Night Over the Rhône by Vincent van Gogh (source)

Before we begin, I would strongly suggest you read part-1 if you have not yet done so. In this guide, we will go through how to deploy your model such that front-end developers can use it in their applications using a REST API without having to worry too much about the underlying details.

How I stopped worrying and started separating my work from my home during work from home.

I know what you are thinking, “another work from home guide” but bear with me for just a minute, I promise this will differ. But before I can tell you how, I must tell you a little about myself.

I am a full-time machine learning engineer working from Bangalore(India), Living in a studio apartment. …

How to implement a CI/CD model development and evaluation pipeline in AWS Sagemaker.

Van Gogh, Vincent. The Starry Night. (source)

This guide results from my own frustration to find a complete end-to-end work on model development, evaluation, deployment on AWS. All the guides, tutorials I saw out there only cover part of the picture and never fully connect the dots. I wanted to write something that will help people understand the complete work that goes into building a model and deploying it such that it can be accessed by front-end developers on their websites and Apps.

So, let us get started!

I have divided this guide into 2 parts.

1. Model Development and Evaluation using AWS Sagemaker Studio.

2. Model…
