An MLOps pipeline is a set of steps that automates the process of creating and maintaining AI/ML models. In other words, Data Scientists create multiple notebooks while building their experiments, and naturally the next step is a transition from experiments to production-ready code. The best way to do this is to build an effective MLOps pipeline.

The MLOps process is basically divided into two main phases – experimentation and realisation. During experiments, data scientists focus on generating lots of ideas and validating them. On the other hand in the second realisation phase, we select a subset of the most promising ideas and deliver them to production. And for sure, only when they are a part of the business operations can they deliver the expected value.

An MLOps pipeline consists of the following four steps:

  1. Download the data
  2. Preprocess the data
  3. Train the model
  4. Deploy the model
