7.7 Model deployment
The deployment of a ML algorithm can be simple but might also be an elaborated effort. In the example here the deployment costs are effort is considerable because software which runs on a satellite has to fulfill special requirements.
Deployment might happen in different stages, it might be deployed only for certain regions a certain kinds of customers. There might be the need for a feedback mechanism to improve the algorithm over time. Also the implementation might be such that it is easily scalable in case the use of the model increases potentially within a short time.
Estimate deployment cost:
- Deployment might happen in different stages
- certain groups of customer
- Might need feedback mechanism
- to improve algorithm
- to report issues
- unwanted behavior
- in case of demand increase
- increase might be sudden
