Kedro + MLFlow – an open-source integration with Hooks

Lais Carvalho (~laisbsc)




Kedro is an open-source Python development workflow framework that implements software engineering best-practices for data and machine-learning pipelines; it's sometimes described as the React or Django of Data Science. MLFlow is a model tracking platform open-sourced by Databricks that manages Machine Learning lifecycles, including experimentation, reproducibility, deployment and a central model registry.

Kedro and MLFlow are complementary; both open-source frameworks can be used together to solve orthogonal problems. While the first provides a seamless developer experience through data abstraction and code organisation, the latter excels in model tracking and metrics visualisation.

In this talk, the speaker will introduce both frameworks, explain how the platforms interact in a project lifecycle and demonstrate how Hooks can be used to manage the integration between Kedro and MLFlow to add model and experimentation tracking to your pipeline. Hooks are a mechanism to allows the user to extend Kedro main execution in an easy and consistent manner.
