Data scientists who work within the R environment can now partake of MLflow, the open source project that Databricks released earlier this year to help manage workflows associated with machine learning development and production lifecycles. In June, Databricks co-founder and CTO Matei Zaharia unveiled MLflow as a way to automate much of the work that data scientists do when building, testing, and deploying machine learning models. The open source software was designed to fill in the gaps between the various tools, frameworks, and processes when building machine learning systems, including tracking code, packaging models, and deploying them into production. According to Databricks, MLflow allows users to package their code as reproducible runs, execute and compare hundreds of parallel experiments, on any hardware or software platform, including on premise and cloud based environments. Assistance with hyperparameter tuning is also provided.
