Model Audits, Checks, and More: The Current State of Affairs with Big Brother and Model QA
Collapse Expand


Model health, model checks, model specifications. Pass, fail, scoring: why, how, what, where! This course will discuss what Stantec has been doing in terms of model health checks, model scoring, model specification checks, and our current state of building out a database to hold the information. We will dig into how we got to where we are currently, as well as future plans. We will particularly look at graph databases and cloud storage as more flexible solutions that can better handle the data and types of queries that interest us. In addition, since we know that not everyone has in-house development teams or Stantec’s breadth, we will look at the various platforms that are now commercially available that can be used to achieve similar results.
