Powering Tensorflow with Big Data: A look at Apache Beam & Apache Spark for Tensorflow

This talk will explore how to use TensorFlow in conjunction with Apache Spark, Flink, and Beam to create a full machine learning pipeline — including feature engineering and data prep components that many might prefer to pretend don’t exist. This talk will look at tools like TensorFlowOnSpark, TFX / TFT / TFDV, and the challenges of integrating data prep into serving. We'll wrap up by examining changing industry trends, like Apache Arrow, and how they impact cross-language development for things like deep learning.

About the speaker

Holden is a transgender Canadian open source developer advocate @ Google with a focus on Apache Spark, Airflow, and related "big data" tools. She is the co-author of Learning Spark, High Performance Spark, and another Spark book that's a bit more out of date. She is a committer and PMC on Apache Spark and committer on SystemML & Mahout projects. She was tricked into the world of big data while trying to improve search and recommendation systems and has long since forgotten her original goal.
