ML powered specialization is the key to making machine learning more portable, more efficient, and easier.

Introduction to Jason and presentation topic: OctoML and Apache TVM for MAchine Learning Deployment - 0:00

The Problem: Machine Learning is hungry (in terms of engineering costs, cloud costs, and silicon costs) - 0:20

Walking through the deployment challenge and visualizing - 1:27

An exploding ecosystem makes deployment painful. Rapidly evolving MML software ecosystem, and Cambrian explosion of HW backends that you can run models on. - 2:32

Apache TVM: Bridging the gap as a DL compiler and runtime. Enables you to take a model and compile it down into backends, optimized for performance across different backends, and achieve high-performance in cross-platform way. Allows you to reduce model time-to-market, build model once and run anywhere, and cut capital/operational ML costs. - 2:57

AutoTVM Overview - using machine learning to automatically adapt to hardware types - 4:36

Performance benchmarks at OctoML in 2020. 2.1x average performance improvement over baselines (with 2.5x average performance improvement on non-public models, due to TVM’s agnostic approach) - 6:29

TVM can also accelerate classical ML models - 9:30
