Weights & Biases, a leading provider of tools for the machine learning (ML) community, has announced the launch of two new products, W&B Weave and W&B Production Monitoring. The exciting news was revealed during the Fully Connected conference, the company’s first large-scale in-person event dedicated to exploring the future of the industry, including topics such as generative AI, large language models (LLMs), and production ML.
During the conference, Shawn Lewis, CTO and Co-Founder of Weights & Biases, expressed the company’s commitment to building the best tools for the ML community. Lewis stated, “W&B Weave and W&B Monitoring are two products that will have an immediate impact for our users and make it easier to build and monitor models over time, and we’re proud to roll these out today during the event.”
W&B Weave is a powerful toolkit designed to simplify the process of building data- and ML-powered applications. It provides users with a visually interactive and composable environment to quickly develop and share data and ML apps. With a notebook-first approach and advanced techniques and visualizations, developers can seamlessly explore data, experiment with ML building blocks, and customize components based on their specific domain needs.
On the other hand, W&B Production Monitoring offers comprehensive observability for ML models and ML-powered applications. It enables fast troubleshooting and continuous improvement of production systems. The product offers scalable and performant logging of production data, empowering users to analyze rich interactive connected analytics. This helps identify the root causes of data drift and model degradation. With the ability to create custom alerts through Automations and incorporate user feedback, teams can continuously enhance model performance as new data becomes available.
Phil Gurbacki, VP of Product at Weights & Biases, highlighted the significance of these new releases in expanding the company’s support for the end-to-end ML lifecycle. Gurbacki stated, “Monitoring models is essential for maintaining cutting-edge model performance in production, and ML developers need powerful, customizable tools for exploring data and building ML applications. With these two new releases, we are confident in addressing both critical areas.”
Both W&B Weave and W&B Production Monitoring are available now, offering ML practitioners, software developers, and MLOps teams enhanced capabilities to streamline their ML workflows and ensure optimal model performance in production settings.
