Coffee Sessions #54 with Niall Murphy, Machine Learning SRE.

//Abstract
SRE is making its way into the machine learning world. Software engineering for machine learning requires reliability, performance, and maintainability. Site reliability engineering is the field that deals with reliability and ensuring constant, real-time performance. Niall Murphy, most recently Global Head of SRE at Microsoft Azure, helps us understand what SRE can do for modern ML products and teams.

Building machine learning teams requires a diverse set of technical experiences, and Niall shares his thoughts on how to do that most effectively. Machine learning organizations need to start to take advantage of SRE best practices like SLOs, which Niall walks through. Production machine learning depends on high-quality software engineering, and we get Niall's take on how to ensure that in a machine learning context.

// Bio
Niall Murphy has been interested in Internet infrastructure since the mid-1990s. He has worked with all of the major cloud providers from their Dublin, Ireland offices - most recently at Microsoft, where he was global head of Azure Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). His books have sold approximately a quarter of a million copies worldwide, most notably the award-winning Site Reliability Engineering, and he is probably one of the few people in the world to hold degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Poetry Studies. He lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife and two children.
