Title: Using cloud computing? You might benefit from data science!
Abstract: Organizations are doing more and more of their computing using cloud resources. Ideally, this computing would be performant, reliable, and efficient (PRE, as they say at Meta Infra). Drawing on 2.5 years of managing a team of 10 infrastructure data scientists at Meta, I describe classes of use cases and approaches to making data-driven decisions and generally improving PRE using ML/OR techniques. Clearly, large companies like Meta, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, etc. could receive a huge return-on-investment from such work.. But increasingly, even medium-sized organizations in cybersecurity, energy analytics, healthcare, etc., could benefit from DS/ML/OR for the effective use of cloud computing.
