About this course

3 weeks course in January - Introduce the student to several tools and software development practices that will help them organize, scale, deploy and monitor machine learning models either in a research or production setting. To provide hands-on experience with a number of frameworks, both local and in the cloud, for working with large scale machine learning pipelines.Proper coding environments, code organization, good coding practices, code and data version control, reproducible and containerized environments, reproducible experiment management, debugging tools, code profiling, large scale collaborative experiment logging and monitoring, unit testing, continuous integration, continuous machine learning, cloud infrastructure, cloud based machine learning, distributed data loading and training, optimization methods for inference, local and cloud based deployment, monitoring of deployed applications.

Expected learning outcomes

  • At the end of the course the learner will be able to:

  • Organize code in an efficient way for easy maintainability and shareability

  • Understand the importance of reproducibility and how to create reproducible containerized applications and experiments

  • Capable of using version control to efficiently collaborate on code development

  • Knowledge of continuous integration (CI) and continuous machine learning (CML) for automating code development

  • Being able to debug; profile; visualize and monitor multiple experiments to assess model performance

  • Capable of using online cloud based computing services to scale experiments

  • Demonstrate knowledge about different distributed training paradigms within machine learning and how to apply them

  • Deploy machine learning models both locally and in the cloud

  • Conduct a research project in collaboration with follow students using the frameworks taught in the course.


Oral examination and reports. Graded Pass/no pass only

Course requirements

General understanding of machine learning (datasets, probability, classifiers, overfitting etc.) and basic knowledge about deep learning (backpropagation, convolutional neural networks, auto-encoders etc.). Familiar with coding in Pytorch


The course includes lectures, exercises and project work. , Approximately 30% of the course is spent on project work in groups of 3-5 persons, where tools throughout the course should be applied on a self-chosen machine learning problem.
