Deploying machine learning models as serverless APIs

Machine learning (ML) practitioners gather data, design algorithms, run experiments, and evaluate the results. After you create an ML model, you face another problem: serving predictions at scale cost-effectively. Serverless technology empowers you to serve your model predictions without worrying about how to manage the underlying infrastructure. Services like AWS Lambda only charge for the […]
