AI and Machine Learning
Accelerate your AI projects with a data-centric approach to machine learning
Dive deeper into AI and Machine Learning on Databricks
Built on an open lakehouse architecture, AI and Machine Learning on Databricks empowers ML teams to prepare and process data, streamlines cross-team collaboration and standardizes the full ML lifecycle from experimentation to production including for generative AI and large language models.

Simplify all aspects of data for AI and ML
Because Databricks ML is built on an open lakehouse foundation with Delta Lake, you can empower your machine learning teams to access, explore and prepare any type of data at any scale. Turn features into production pipelines in a self-service manner without depending on data engineering support.
Automate experiment tracking and governance
Managed MLflow automatically tracks your experiments and logs parameters, metrics, versioning of data and code, as well as model artifacts with each training run. You can quickly see previous runs, compare results and reproduce a past result, as needed. Once you have identified the best version of a model for production, register it to the Model Registry to simplify handoffs along the deployment lifecycle.
Manage the full model lifecycle from data to production — and back
Once trained models are registered, you can collaboratively manage them through their lifecycle with the Model Registry. Models can be versioned and moved through various stages, like experimentation, staging, production and archived. The lifecycle management integrates with approval and governance workflows according to role-based access controls. Comments and email notifications provide a rich collaborative environment for data teams.
Deploy ML models at scale and low latency
Deploy models with a single click without having to worry about server management or scale constraints. With Databricks, you can deploy your models as REST API endpoints anywhere with enterprise-grade availability.
Use generative AI and large language models
Integrate existing pretrained models — such as those from the Hugging Face transformers library or other open source libraries — into your workflow. Transformer pipelines make it easy to use GPUs and allow batching of items sent to the GPU for better throughput.
Customize a model on your data for your specific task. With the support of open source tooling, such as Hugging Face and DeepSpeed, you can quickly and efficiently take a foundation LLM and start training with your own data to have more accuracy for your domain and workload. This also gives you control to govern the data used for training so you can make sure you’re using AI responsibly.
Databricks notebooks natively support Python, R, SQL and Scala so practitioners can work together with the languages and libraries of their choice to discover, visualize and share insights.
Machine Learning Runtime
One-click access to preconfigured ML-optimized clusters, powered by a scalable and reliable distribution of the most popular ML frameworks (such as PyTorch, TensorFlow and scikit-learn), with built-in optimizations for unmatched performance at scale.
Facilitate the reuse of features with a data lineage–based feature search that leverages automatically logged data sources. Make features available for training and serving with simplified model deployment that doesn’t require changes to the client application.
Empower everyone from ML experts to citizen data scientists with a “glass box” approach to AutoML that delivers not only the highest performing model, but also generates code for further refinement by experts.
Built on top of MLflow — the world’s leading open source platform for the ML lifecycle — Managed MLflow helps ML models quickly move from experimentation to production, with enterprise security, reliability and scale.
Production-Grade Model Serving
Serve models at any scale with one-click simplicity, with the option to leverage serverless compute.
Monitor model performance and how it affects business metrics in real time. Databricks delivers end-to-end visibility and lineage from models in production back to source data systems, helping analyze model and data quality across the full ML lifecycle and pinpoint issues before they have damaging impact.
Repos allows engineers to follow Git workflows in Databricks, enabling data teams to leverage automated CI/CD workflows and code portability.
Large Language Models
Databricks makes it simple to access LLMs and integrate them into your workflows and provides platform capabilities for fine-tuning LLMs using your own data, resulting in better domain performance.
