Introduction to Elyra: Set of AI-centric extensions to JupyterLab

When:  Oct 22, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CT)
Join PyData Chicago for this virtual meetup!

Whether you are just getting started in Data Science or are seasoned data scientist, the JupyterLab IDE is likely a tool you are using frequently to get work done. In this session we will introduce Elyra – a set of AI-centric extensions to JupyterLab – that provide support for ML workflow pipelines, Git versioning, code snippets and much more. We'll also demonstrate how to create Machine Learning pipeline from Jupyter notebooks or Python scripts using Elyra's Visual Pipeline Editor, and how to run pipelines locally in JupyterLab or remotely on Kubeflow Pipelines.
