Effective ML Systems Development

In this talk, we learn how Volvo Cars enable the effective development of machine learning systems.


After spending most of his career as a full-stack Data Scientist/ML Engineer, Leonard has shifted focus toward MLOps. Leonard is currently driving machine learning engineering and operations at Volvo Cars. In particular, how to effectively reap its benefits at an enterprise scale.  Leonard introduces Volvo Cars ML stack and related work focused on stitching these services together to reduce friction in the ML value stream. Furthermore, we discuss some learnings along the way and general thoughts about what it takes to lay a solid ML foundation in a company like Volvo Cars.
