We’re back for a brand new season of the Kernel of Truth podcast. We’ve had some changes but you’ll hear some familiar voices. Roopa Prabhu is back, and Rama Darbha has joined her as a co-host. In this episode we have invited Nicolas Koumchatzky to talk about MLOps and how it intersects with NetDevOps. We cover how the industry is defining MLOps, then we compare and contrast MLOps to NetDevOps, finally finishing with how real world deployments are using both paradigms. Thanks for joining us in a new season and don’t forget to also check out the links below with resources referenced in the podcast.
