I recently asked the Twitter community about their biggest machine learning pain points and what work their teams plan to focus on in 2020. One of the most frequently mentioned pain points was deploying machine learning models. More specifically, "How do you deploy machine learning models in an automated, reproducible, and auditable manner?" The topic of ML deployment is rarely discussed when machine learning is taught. Boot camps, data science graduate programs, and online courses tend to focus on training algorithms and neural network architectures because these are "core" machine learning ideas.
