Databricks Aims To Simplify Building Machine Learning Models Through MLflow

Databricks, the Silicon Valley-based startup focused on commercializing Apache Spark, has developed MLflow, an open source toolkit for data scientists to manage the lifecycle of machine learning models.

Unlike traditional software development, machine learning relies on a plethora of tools. For each stage involved in building a model, data scientists use at least half-a-dozen tools. Each stage requires extensive experimentation before settling for the right toolkit and framework. The fragmentation of tools combined with the need to rapidly iterate makes machine learning extremely complex.

MLflow from Databricks is aimed at reducing the complexity through an abstraction layer that talks to a variety of tools and frameworks. This toolkit can be effectively used by individual data scientists or even large teams involved in building machine learning models.

MLflow addresses three essential challenges in building and managing ML models:

1) Insight into the way each parameter and hyperparameter influence a model

2) A consistent way of performing experiments while evolving a model

3) Simplified model serving across multiple environments for inference
