Workshop: Challenges in Deploying and Monitoring Machine Learning Systems

A Preliminary Study of MLOps Practices in GitHub

Fabio Calefato · Filippo Lanubile · Luigi Quaranta


The rapid and growing popularity of machine learning (ML) applications has led to an increasing interest in MLOps, i.e., the practice of continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) of ML-enabled systems. Since changes may affect not only the code but also the ML model parameters and the data themselves, the automation of traditional CI/CD needs to be extended to manage model retraining in production.Here we present an initial investigation of the MLOps practices implemented in a set of ML-enabled systems retrieved from GitHub. Our preliminary results suggest that the current adoption of MLOps workflows in open-source GitHub projects is rather limited. Issues are also identified, which can guide future research work.
