What is Ray Summit?
Ray Summit brings together the community of architects, machine learning engineers, researchers, and other developers building the next generation of scalable, distributed, high-performance Python and machine learning applications. The conference will include those who are already using Ray and those who are interested in learning how Ray can meet their needs.
The conference centers around Ray, an open-source system for scaling Python applications from single machines to large clusters. Several common problems in scalable, distributed computing, particularly for high-performance machine learning applications motivated the creation of Ray. The project is already being used in several machine learning systems and production deployments at companies like Intel, Ant Financial, JP Morgan, Ericsson, Facebook, and many others. Ray Summit is produced by Anyscale, the company recently founded to develop Ray, along with products and services that use it.
