The O’Reilly Data Show Podcast: Peter Bailis on data management, ML benchmarks, and building next-gen tools for analysts.
In this episode of the Data Show, I speak with Peter Bailis, founder and CEO of Sisu, a startup that is using machine learning to improve operational analytics. Bailis is also an assistant professor of computer science at Stanford University, where he conducts research into data-intensive systems and where he is co-founder of the DAWN Lab.
We had a great conversation spanning many topics, including:
- His personal blog, which contains some of the best explainers on emerging topics in data management and distributed systems.
- The role of machine learning in operational analytics and business intelligence.
- Machine learning benchmarks—specifically two recent ML initiatives that he’s been involved with: DAWNBench and MLPerf.
- Trends in data management and in tools for machine learning development, governance, and operations.
[A version of this post appears on the O’Reilly Radar.]
- “Setting benchmarks in machine learning”: Dave Patterson, Peter Bailis, and other industry leaders discuss how MLPerf will define an entire suite of benchmarks to measure performance of software, hardware, and cloud systems.
- “The quest for high-quality data”
- “RISELab’s AutoPandas hints at automation tech that will change the nature of software development”
- Jeff Jonas on “Real-time entity resolution made accessible”
- “What are model governance and model operations?”
- “We need to build machine learning tools to augment machine learning engineers”
