Abstract:   Machine Learning has been around for a long time but recent advances in Machine Learning tools and frameworks makes it much easier to tackle complex multi-dimensional problems.  Many of these frameworks are themselves complex and to simplify the complexity they are sometimes packaged as Docker images and can be run as Docker Containers on a machine.  Running these Machine Learning containers on a Grid managed by
Univa Grid Engine presented us with unique challenges in managing, running, controlling and accounting for the applications.  In this presentation we will demonstrate a Machine Learning application running in a Docker container on Univa Grid Engine, discuss each issue we encountered, the solutions implemented and outstanding problems that still need to be solved.
