Scaling Video AI at RTL with Daan Odijk

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Daan Odijk, Data Science Manager at RTL.

In our conversation with Daan, we explore the RTL MLOps journey, and their need to put platform infrastructure in place for ad optimization and forecasting, personalization, and content understanding use cases. Daan walks us through some of the challenges on both the modeling and engineering sides of building the platform, as well as the inherent challenges of video applications.

Finally, we discuss the current state of their platform, and the benefits they’ve seen from having this infrastructure in place, and why using building a custom platform was worth the investment.

At the end of the day, real-world machine learning is all about the data. You already know this, but manually cleaning and transforming data can be exhausting, inconsistent, and error-prone, and is not the path towards getting your models into production, especially when your data, models, and code are constantly changing.

This is where Pachyderm can help. Pachyderm is an easy-to-use data science platform that lets you productionalize your machine learning tasks into fully-automated, end-to-end workflows, regardless of language or framework. Pachyderm provides Git-like data versioning and lineage that lets you automatically track every data change and final output result.

Right now, TWIML listeners can enjoy 20% off of Pachyderm Hub and build production-grade data science workflows in minutes, without ever having to configure a single piece of infrastructure.

Imagine being able to automate your entire data science workflow and reproduce any result from any point in time — in seconds, and with complete confidence.
