Session Talk - Unified Data Teams across The End-to-End Data and Machine Learning Lifecycle
Reynold Xin, Original Creator of Apache Spark and Chief Architect at Databricks

Most organizations today are challenged with data silos, using separate technologies for data processing and machine learning, with limited collaboration between data scientists and engineers. The session will cover a new unified approach that leverages open source technologies (Apache Spark, MLflow, TensorFlow and others) to accelerate your data science initiatives. Unified Analytics combines data processing and machine learning in a single collaborative platform for data science and engineering teams. In this talk, Databricks will also share how customers like Nielsen, Bechtel, Shell, and Hotels.com are building unified teams across the end-to-end data and machine learning lifecycle to accelerate innovation.

“We hear from enterprises across the globe that the end-to-end data and machine learning life cycle continues to be a challenge for data teams looking to achieve AI,” said Xin. “Our session will cover practical approaches that have been leveraged by thousands of organizations to overcome the bottlenecks associated with data silos and disparate technologies.”

Databricks was recently named a Visionary in Gartner’s January 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms for the second consecutive year. Databricks’ Unified Analytics Platform is a cloud-based platform powered by Apache Spark that provides auto-scaling for big data clusters, performs up to 50x faster than Apache Spark, integrates seamlessly with machine learning frameworks and simplifies productioning data pipelines.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
