  • The AutoML metrics framework enables the Einstein team to monitor and troubleshoot thousands of models running and production;
  • Metrics can automatically alert us of any modeling issues across the platform;
  • They are an invaluable part of the development process- by tracking metrics in modeling experiments we can test and evaluate new features before deploying them to production.


The Einstein Prediction Builder modeling pipeline automates all steps of the end-to-end modeling process, from data auditing and feature engineering to model selection, for thousands of models. Although powerful, automated machine learning pipelines are inherently a black box that can be notoriously difficult to troubleshoot. This talk walks through a Data Science perspective of using monitoring and alerting, well-established practices in traditional engineering, to develop our modeling pipeline. We will discuss how we track data and modeling metrics at each stage in the pipeline to identify data and modeling issues and to raise alerts for issues affecting models running production. Furthermore, we will cover how this metrics framework is instrumental in helping to develop new features in a data-driven manner.
