Most people know machine learning (ML) as the recommendations you see on shopping sites and the song suggestions you see on music services. It’s moved so far into the mainstream, it’s often just called AI, as if that’s all there is to AI.
The new frontier of ML is deep learning (DL), the advanced realm of self-driving cars. However, the infrastructure needs of DL are different from ML hardware. Infrastructure implementations can and do vary but there are some core considerations you need to consider as you build out your system.
Fortunately, modern open-source technology allows highly qualified engineering teams to design highly effective clusters that are also very strong on ROI.
Choosing the AI model determines what data you want to ingress, what tools you use, which components are required, and how those components are connected. Once you’ve selected your AI model, picked your processing framework, and structured your data, you typically want to run a proof of concept (POC) for the learning phase of the project and likely a separate one for the inference portion (as the requirements for each are different), though that is not always possible due to cost. If the POC testing process works out, you want to move to production. Often, a successful program means scaling to gain even more value from your data.
