Experience Hybrid-Cloud AI/ML at Scale

Data Science practices face challenges of scale, reproducibility, on-prem and cloud data silos, and inconsistent deployments across environments. NIH faces these same challenges, with the added complexity of sheer size and global impact. Please join us as we use the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to demonstrate the Detection of Pneumonia from Chest X-Rays, and Federate COVID-19 data across on-prem and cloud providers. This cloud-agnostic platform leverages popular ML tools for running large and distributed workloads across disparate multi-cloud data sets. Compute resources are spun up on-demand, and scale to 0 as compute jobs reach completion, while data science environments are treated as reproducible artifacts for temporal drift detection and community study.

Red Hat has a proven and global track record of helping organizations operationalize AI/ML solutions in multi and hybrid cloud environments using open source tools for data harmonization, distributed AI and ML workflows, and the emerging practice of ML Ops.

Emerging Technology Tech Talks

Analytic Automation, The Key to Successful AI

Only through the building of a strong analytic foundation can organizations realize the trough promise of
digital transformation, machine learning and ai. organizations need to understand their goals, risks and
capabilities in regard to analytics maturity. They need the ability to incorporate human judgement and
accountability and delineate between “black box” and “clear box” AI. Organizations also need to
maintained transparency and testing and build an ability to harness and drive insight with unstructured
data, while also have capability to mitigate undesired bias and ensure objectivity. A unified analytic
platform like Alteryx helps organization build successful AI capabilities.
