In Part 1, we introduced machine learning and the core methodology to achieve optimal results to facilitate learning. This article introduces the Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning Platform for AI (PAI) and the architecture of this solution.
The Machine Learning Platform for AI (PAI) has more usage and implementation scenarios than other available solutions. Let’s use an example of an organization with a strongly defined DevOps pipeline. The DevOps solution is all about automation and reaching the threshold where application delivery is a highly self-sustaining process.
This process includes the following steps:
This application lifecycle is highly regulated with machine learning. Based on different phases, the Machine Learning Platform with AI works with:
Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning uses statistic algorithms to create training models based on huge amounts of historical data. These models are applicable in a number of scenarios and can help make informed business decisions. Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning includes traditional machine learning and deep learning.
Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning Platform for AI was designed to serve enterprises to attain an optimal working cycle and a structure that incorporates the core business values and builds on the historical data. Alibaba Cloud launched the Machine Learning Platform for AI in 2018. Since then, it has worked with thousands of enterprises and individual developers to become one of the leading machine learning and AI solutions available.
Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning Platform for AI supports computing frameworks, such as:
Alibaba Cloud Machine Learning Platform for AI uses multiple layers to distribute workflows:
