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.

Scalable machine learning, scalable Python, for everyone: Join Michael Jordan, Manuela Veloso, Azalia Mirhoseini, Zoubin Ghahramani, Wes McKinney, Ion Stoica, Gaël Varoquaux, Raluca Popa and many other speakers at the first Ray Summit, a FREE virtual conference which takes place Sep 30th and Oct 1st.

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.
  • Ray.
