MLflow, with over 13 million month-to-month downloads, has grow to be the usual platform for end-to-end MLOps, enabling groups of all sizes to trace, share, bundle and deploy any mannequin for batch or real-time inference. On Databricks, Managed MLflow offers a managed model of MLflow with enterprise-grade reliability and safety at scale, in addition to seamless integrations with the Databricks Machine Studying Runtime, Characteristic Retailer, and Serverless Actual-Time Inference. Hundreds of organizations are utilizing MLflow on Databricks every single day to energy all kinds of manufacturing machine studying purposes.
Right now, we’re thrilled to announce the supply of MLflow 2.0! Constructing upon MLflow’s sturdy platform basis, MLflow 2.0 incorporates in depth consumer suggestions to simplify information science workflows and ship progressive, first-class instruments for MLOps. Options and enhancements embrace extensions to MLflow Recipes (previously MLflow Pipelines) similar to AutoML, hyperparameter tuning, and classification assist, as effectively modernized integrations with the ML ecosystem, a streamlined MLflow Monitoring UI, a refresh of core APIs throughout MLflow’s platform parts, and way more.
Speed up mannequin improvement with MLflow Recipes
MLflow Recipes permits information scientists to quickly develop high-quality fashions and deploy them to manufacturing. With MLflow Recipes, you may get began rapidly utilizing predefined resolution recipes for quite a lot of ML modeling duties, iterate sooner with the Recipes execution engine, and simply ship sturdy fashions to manufacturing by delivering modular, reviewable mannequin code and configurations with none refactoring. MLflow 2.0 incorporates MLflow Recipes as a core platform part. It additionally makes a number of vital extensions, together with assist for classification fashions, improved information profiling and hyperparameter tuning capabilities.
MLflow 2.0 additionally introduces AutoML to MLflow Recipes, dramatically decreasing the period of time required to provide a high-quality mannequin. Merely specify a dataset and goal column in your regression or classification activity, and MLflow Recipes mechanically explores an unlimited house of ML frameworks, architectures, and parameterizations to ship an optimum mannequin. Mannequin parameters are made available for additional tuning, and complete outcomes are logged to MLflow Monitoring for reproducible reference and comparability.
To get began with MLflow Recipes, watch the demo video and take a look at the quickstart information on mlflow.org.
MLflow Recipes helps us standardize and automate our ML improvement workflow. With built-in visualization and experiment monitoring integration, we have now elevated our experimentation velocity, accelerating the mannequin improvement course of. Integration with different groups has grow to be simpler, simplifying the trail to deploy fashions.

Streamline your workflows with a refreshed MLflow core expertise
In MLflow 2.0, we’re excited to introduce a refresh of core platform APIs and the MLflow Monitoring UI primarily based on in depth suggestions from MLflow customers and Databricks prospects. The simplified platform expertise streamlines your information science and MLOps workflows, serving to you attain manufacturing sooner.
As you practice and examine fashions, each MLflow Run you create now has a singular, memorable identify that can assist you establish the most effective outcomes. In a while, you possibly can simply retrieve a gaggle of MLflow runs by identify or ID utilizing expanded MLflow search filters, in addition to seek for experiments by identify and by tags. When it comes time to deploy your fashions, MLflow 2.0’s revamped mannequin scoring API provides a richer request and response format for incorporating further data similar to prediction confidence intervals.
Along with enhancing MLflow’s core APIs, we have now redesigned the experiment web page for MLflow Monitoring, distilling essentially the most related mannequin data and simplifying the search expertise. The brand new experiment web page additionally features a Run pinning characteristic for simply protecting monitor of the most effective fashions as your experiments progress. The up to date web page can also be obtainable now on Databricks; merely click on the Experiments icon within the sidebar and choose a number of experiments to get began.
“With Databricks, we are able to now monitor completely different variations of experiments and simulations, bundle and share fashions throughout the group; and deploy fashions rapidly. Consequently, we are able to iterate on predictive fashions at a a lot sooner tempo resulting in extra correct forecasts.”
— Johan Vallin, International Head of Information Science at Electrolux
Leverage the newest ML instruments in any setting at scale
From day one, MLflow’s open interface design philosophy has simplified end-to-end machine studying workflows whereas offering compatibility with the huge machine studying ecosystem, empowering all ML practitioners whereas utilizing their most popular toolsets. With MLflow 2.0, we’re doubling down on our dedication to delivering first-class assist for the newest and best machine studying libraries and frameworks.
To this finish, MLflow 2.0 features a revamped integration with TensorFlow and Keras, unifying logging and scoring functionalities for each mannequin sorts behind a standard interface. The modernized
mlflow.tensorflow module additionally provides a pleasant expertise for energy customers with TensorFlow Core APIs whereas sustaining simplicity for information scientists utilizing Keras.
Moreover, in MLflow 2.0, the
mlflow.consider() API for mannequin analysis is now secure and production-ready. With only a single line of code,
mlflow.consider() creates a complete efficiency report for any ML mannequin. Merely specify a dataset and MLflow Mannequin, and
mlflow.consider() generates efficiency metrics, efficiency plots, and mannequin explainability insights which might be tailor-made to your modeling drawback. You can too use
mlflow.consider() to validate mannequin efficiency towards predefined thresholds and examine the efficiency of recent fashions towards a baseline, making certain that your fashions meet manufacturing necessities. For extra details about mannequin analysis, try the “Mannequin Analysis in MLflow” weblog submit and the mannequin analysis documentation on mlflow.org.
“A whole lot of what we’re doing is round machine studying and AI. MLflow has been key to enhancing mannequin lifecycle administration and permits us to visualise the outcomes and the outcomes from these fashions”
