Introduction to Artificial Intelligence Experiment Management

MissingLink is a powerful deep learning platform that helps data engineers streamline and automate the entire deep learning cycle: data, code, experiments and resources. It eliminates the grunt work and significantly shortens the time it takes to train and deliver effective models.

When it comes to experiment management, integrating the MissingLink SDK to your workflow will immediately provide significant benefits, including:

  • Metrics Monitoring: Metrics monitoring that can be easily shared with teammates.
  • Graphs: Automatic plotting of graphs for monitored metrics for easy analysis.
  • Email Alerts: Get email alerts when events that you are interested in have occurred, such as when an experiment has failed with an exception.
  • Experiment Comparison: Compare up to three experiments side-by-side to easily analyze, spot differences, and decide what steps to take to improve the model.
  • Experiment Tagging and Filtering: Filter the columns in the Experiment table to display only data that is of interest to you.
  • Confusion Matrix: Automatic plotting of a confusion matrix to help you decide what to do next with your models.
  • Simplified Source Tracking: Lets you investigate the code used for running an experiment. Assuming that you use Git, this feature is active by default.
  • Data Point Report: Download a report of the expected and predicted results for every data point that was used in a specific test.

With a little more integration effort, you can enable additional MissingLink capabilities:

  • Experiment Hyperparams: Hyperparams annotated on each experiment to help differentiate between different experiments.
  • Experiment Custom Metrics: While running an experiment, you can add and monitor custom metrics that are outside the framework, such as the cost of running an experiment.
  • Experiment External Metrics: After an experiment has ended, you can add external metrics for monitoring, such as experiments that have met your requirements.
  • Graceful Shutdown: You can gracefully shut down an experiment and trigger a new experiment with modified parameters or add a log to your experiment logs, without having an exception raised that triggers an unmanaged shutdown.
  • Advanced Source Tracking: You can also track changes that are not committed to source control.

Advanced integration

After integrating MissingLink's SDK and seeing some of the benefits in action, you can explore how to integrate the more advanced capabilities of MissingLink's SDK.
