Databricks released a new version of MLflow, which is an open-source machine learning framework for multi-cloud environments. In collaboration with RStudio, it has developed an R API for MLflow v0.7.0.

“In many organizations machine learning workflows are far too ad-hoc, with no systematic tracking of experiments, inadequate protocols around reproducibility, and no consistent way to package and deploy models. MLflow helps address these issues in a uniform fashion across languages and frameworks,” said JJ Allaire, chief executive officer at RStudio. “Integration of R with MLflow will significantly broaden the reach of the project by allowing a broader community to use and contribute to MLflow.”
