Arthur is an observability platform that provides proactive model monitoring to give you confidence and peace of mind that your AI deployments are performing at peak. Their platform provides a layer of performance monitoring, algorithmic bias detection, and explainability, even for black-box models, so you can quickly detect, diagnose, and fix any issues that arise in production.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to integrate Arthur with Algorithmia so you can bring their advanced monitoring capabilities to your algorithms. To make use of this integration, you’ll need to have an account set up on their platform.
To start, you’ll need to add the Arthur AI Python library to your
requirements.txt file, as well as pandas and joblib, which are used in this example algorithm:
arthurai joblib pandas
We’ll begin by looking at a basic Python algorithm that implements the
predict_proba() method to make model predictions.
First, you must instantiate a
client object to handle the request. Note that if you’re running Algorithmia Enterprise, you’ll want to specify the API endpoint when you create the client object.
In this example, the trained model
credit_model.pkl is saved in a hosted data collection on Algorithmia, but it could be loaded from a data source outside of Algorithmia as well. In this example, the
COLLECTION_OWNER string must match the account name (i.e., username) associated with the API key calling the algorithm, and the
COLLECTION_NAME string must match the name of the hosted data collection.
To add Arthur’s monitoring capabilities, import Arthur’s Python library and establish a connection with the platform through the
ArthurAI class. Then, decorate the target function with
@log_inferences to log the inference data automatically with Arthur:
Once you’ve connected your algorithm to Arthur’s platform and published it, all executions of that specific version of your algorithm will send inference data to Arthur.
In addition to Arthur, Algorithmia has other model monitoring and observability capabilities. If you’re using Algorithmia Enterprise, you have access to an admin panel where you can view usage metrics at the cluster, user account, and algorithm level. See the Platform Usage Reporting page for more information. You can also opt in to Algorithmia Insights in your algorithms, enabling you to publish your inference data to a Kafka topic which you can then subscribe to from external observability platforms. See Algorithmia Insights for more information.
