17th August 2019 - updated to reflect changes in the Kubernetes API and Seldon Core.

A common pattern for deploying Machine Learning (ML) models into production environments - e.g. ML models trained using the SciKit Learn or Keras packages (for Python), that are ready to provide predictions on new data - is …

Conducting a Bayesian data analysis - e.g. estimating a Bayesian linear regression model - will usually require some form of Probabilistic Programming Language (PPL), unless analytical approaches (e.g. based on conjugate prior models), are appropriate for the task at hand. More often than not, PPLs implement Markov Chain Monte Carlo …

Building machine learning and statistical models often requires pre- and post-transformation of the input and/or response variables, prior to training (or fitting) the models. For example, a model may require training on the logarithm of the response and input variables. As a consequence, fitting and then generating predictions from …
