The Data Exchange Podcast: Christopher Nguyen on taking a relationship-centric approach to designing data applications.
In this episode of the Data Exchange I speak with Christopher Nguyen, CEO of Arimo (a Panasonic company). I first met Christopher in the early days of Apache Spark, Arimo was one of the first companies to embrace Spark and make it a central component of their data platform. He was also an early proponent of exploring deep learning for enterprise applications. A serial entrepreneur, Christopher was also an Engineering Director at Google where he was responsible for Google Apps.
Our conversation covered a range of topics including:
- The difference between being a vendor (Arimo), and his current role implementing analytics and machine learning products and systems within a large company.
- Machine learning for IoT and industrial internet applications. This includes examples like predictive maintenance, forecasting, and more.
- The benefits of combining rule-based systems and machine learning models.
- MLOps and productionizing machine learning.
