In addition to machine learning practitioners in the various departments within GDI&A, there also is a dedicated group of experts in the Machine Learning and Scalable Computing Center of Excellence (ML/SC CoE), whose motto is “Learn, Apply, Master and Teach”. Aligned with that motto, one of the mandates of the CoE is to promote the proliferation of best practices related to ML/SC not only within GDI&A, but also the broader Ford Motor Company enterprise. The CoE fulfills this mandate by serving as internal consultants, as well as offering in-house training opportunities on a variety of topics such as neural nets, deep learning, Spark, and more. Each of these training activities is taught by CoE experts and is customized for the big data computing environment available to all GDI&A employees. In addition, the CoE members maintain their skills by leading their own ML/SC projects for internal Ford customers in a wide variety of domains including marketing, manufacturing, finance and more.
