A biased take on platform tools for better Machine Learning
Gerard Casas Saez
Gerard Casas Saez
Twitter, Senior Machine Learning Engineer

Join for this biased presentation of state of the world of ML platform, how different OSS technologies are shaping the ML Infrastructure landscape, and wether it makes sense to use some of them earlier or later as your ML platform. This talk will be pretty biased on my own experiences, so take with a grain of salt, but come join as I introduce you to some of the technologies I have worked with and listen to some of my experience with them.

Twitter Security at Scale
David Allen
David Allen
Twitter, Senior ML Security Engineer

350 billion requests from 300 Million unique IP Addresses daily come into Twitter's public facing services creating a vast surface area to monitor. Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks and large scale scrapping put pressure on the infrastructure that off-the-shelf solutions cannot currently handle. Join David Allen, Senior Security Engineer at Twitter, as he walks through dissecting these attacks and applying machine learning to show you an approach to security at scale.
