Principal Engineer, Google

Konstantinos (Gus) is the über tech lead of TensorFlow Extended (TFX), an end-to-end machine learning platform based on TensorFlow (tensorflow.org/tfx). Before that he worked on Sibyl, a massive scale machine learning system (precursor to TensorFlow) widely used at Google. Prior to being a builder of machine learning infrastructure he was an avid user of it, while leading the Mobile Display Ads Quality team at Google.

Prior to Google, Gus gathered knowledge and experience at Amazon, Calian, Ontario Ministry of Finance, Independent Electricity System Operator, and Computron.

Past sessions

As machine learning evolves from experimentation to serving production workloads, so does the need to effectively manage the end-to-end training and production workflow including model management, versioning, and serving. Clemens Mewald offers an overview of TensorFlow Extended (TFX), the end-to-end machine learning platform for TensorFlow that powers products across all of Alphabet. Many TFX components rely on the Beam SDK to define portable data processing workflows. This talk motivates the development of a Spark runner for Beam Python.
