T-Mobile AI

When tasked with creating the first customer-facing machine learning model at T-Mobile, we were faced with a conundrum. We had been told time and time again to deploy machine learning models in production you had to use Python, but our very best data scientists were fluent in building neural networks in R with Keras and TensorFlow. Determined to avoid double work, we decided to use R in production for our machine learning models. After months of work, wrangling our containers to meet cloud security compliance, and conforming to DevOps standards, we succeeded in creating a containerized API solution using the keras and plumber R packages and Docker. Today R is actively powering tools that our customers directly interact with and we have open sourced our methods.

In this talk, we’ll walk through how to deploy R models as container-based APIs, the struggles and triumphs we’ve had using R in production, and how you can design your teams to optimize for this sort of innovation. We’ll also cover using Amazon SageMaker GroundTruth for labeling data sets at-scale and demonstrate how we’ve created a data labeling workflow for T-Mobile AI.
