Cloudy with high chance of DBMS: A 10-year prediction for Enterprise-Grade ML (and what we are doing to get there)
Matteo Interlandi (Microsoft)



Abstract: Machine learning (ML) has proven itself in high-value web applications such as search ranking and is emerging as a powerful tool in a much broader range of enterprise scenarios including voice recognition and conversational understanding for customer support, autotuning for videoconferencing, manufacturing and autonomous vehicle management, complex financial predictions, just to name a few. Meanwhile, as the value of data is increasingly recognized and monetized, concerns about securing valuable data and risks to individual privacy have been growing. Consequently, rigorous data management has emerged as a key requirement in enterprise settings. How will these trends (ML growing popularity, and stricter data governance) intersect? What are the unmet requirements for applying ML in enterprise settings? In this talk I will present our vision of how ML and database systems are likely to come together, and early steps we are taking towards making this vision a reality.
