Mike Del Balso is the founding product manager behind Uber's Machine Learning Platform, Michelangelo. His team built Uber's core ML infrastructure and scaled ML across the company from a first few use cases in 2015 to over 100 production ML applications today that span various domains including natural language, sensor data, pricing optimization, and computer vision. His team also created and open sourced Horovod, a popular distributed deep learning framework. Mike was previously at Google where he was the product manager for the core machine learning systems that power Google's ads auction. He recently left Uber to start a new venture in the applied machine learning space. He's not saying much about it yet but you can find him off-stage and see what you can pry out of him.
