I am an experienced Data Engineer with a history of big data and machine learning projects. I love to tackle big data and scale challenges and find ways to run the same workloads at 1/10 the processing and the costs, mostly using Spark and clever data techniques.I love unlocking data, turning it to knowledge and making it accessible to our users.

Summit 2021 Anomaly Detection at Scale!

May 27, 2021 11:00 AM PT

We all know how to create ML models, but the path to turning them into a highly scalable easy to use system by users is not always clear. What happens when you need to run thousands of them, on many different datasets, simultaneously and at a huge scale? AND, do it reliably so you can sleep well at night!!


To achieve exactly that, we’ve decided to go down the serverless route and build an anomaly detection system on top of it. We’ll go over the pros and cons of building such a system using serverless and when such an approach could work for you. 


Our SpotLight anomaly detection system is capable of easily reusing ML models, and scale to run millions of time series simultaneously with ease. Our system eliminates manual work and allows our end users with no scientific background to set anomalies to detect in a plug and play way and get alerts in no time.


In this talk, we’ll walk you through the architecture and share useful ideas you can adopt and implement in your own projects.
