Lightning Talk: Kuber-What-Es?! Misadventures in Building UIs for K8s-Based ML Platforms - Alexandra Johnson, Independent
Last year, our team set out to build a machine learning platform for launching hyperparameter optimization jobs. However, after our launch, the kubernetes-based machine learning platform wasn't a hit with our internal users. This talk explains why, starting with our three critical user interface design decisions, the two problems these led to, and our one direction for future work. This talk is meant to be a very compact, but honest, look at some of the user experience challenges faced by teams building kubernetes-based ML platforms.

Lightning Talk: Sharing a GPU Among Multiple Containers - Patrick McQuighan, Algorithmia
We’ve been sharing GPU resources across multiple containers since 2016, and we’ve learned a few lessons along the way. In this lightning talk, we’ll walk you through the work we’ve done and discuss some newer approaches to the same problem.

Specifically, this talk will address:

* Why GPUs matter
* What makes sharing GPUs across containers hard
* How we’ve managed to share GPUs in the past
* Recent solutions, including the GPUShare Scheduler Extender project (https://github.com/AliyunContainerService/gpushare-scheduler-extender)
