Session Outline

In the machine learning model development lifecycle, continuous monitoring and retraining are essential for maintaining optimal performance in real-world applications. In this talk, we review the impact of various decision points on factors like model performance and resource utilization for continuous training of Language Models in production. We have developed a reference framework for designing an effective model retraining strategy to address challenges such as data or concept drift and utilization of the latest data as they become available.

Key Takeaways

  • A framework of decision points to develop a model retraining process.
  • Strategies for including newly acquired data for model retraining and evaluation. 
  • Empirical evidence on model performance using different retraining strategies.
