MIT Deep Learning Life Sciences
MIT has released as part of their OpenCourseware a fascinating course that dives into deep learning in the life sciences / computational systems biology, and contains practical knowledge on applicable and cutting edge concepts in this sub-field.
An interesting project that contains an intuitive overview and practical repo that enables anyone to get started with Pytorch-based voice synthesis. This also provides a glimpse around the ease of access to similar state-of-the-art emerging technologies, including opportunities and challenges.
The data exchange podcast dives into conversation with Superconductive CEO Abe Gong, where they dive into tools aimed at improving data quality through tools for validation and testing.
Machine Learning Mastery has put together a tutorial that walks through one of the hello-worlds of machine learning, using robust best practices for building and training a neural network on the cancer dataset.
A comprehensive blog post overview of the new features available in the latest minor 0.24 version of Sklearn, including upgrading gotchas, sequential feature selectors, individual conditional expectation plots and other new features.
The topic for this week's featured production machine learning libraries is GPU Acceleration Frameworks. We are currently looking for more libraries to add - if you know of any that are not listed, please let us know or feel free to add a PR. The four featured libraries this week are:
  • Vulkan Kompute - Blazing fast, lightweight and mobile phone-enabled GPU compute framework optimized for advanced  data processing usecases.
  • CuPy - An implementation of NumPy-compatible multi-dimensional array on CUDA. CuPy consists of the core multi-dimensional array class, cupy.ndarray, and many functions on it.
  • Jax - Composable transformations of Python+NumPy programs: differentiate, vectorize, JIT to GPU/TPU, and more
  • CuDF - Built based on the Apache Arrow columnar memory format, cuDF is a GPU DataFrame library for loading, joining, aggregating, filtering, and otherwise manipulating data.
If you know of any libraries that are not in the "Awesome MLOps" list, please do give us a heads up or feel free to add a pull request
As AI systems become more prevalent in society, we face bigger and tougher societal challenges. We have seen a large number of resources that aim to takle these challenges in the form of AI Guidelines, Principles, Ethics Frameworks, etc, however there are so many resources it is hard to navigate. Because of this we started an Open Source initiative that aims to map the ecosystem to make it simpler to navigate. You can find multiple principles in the repo - some examples include the following:
If you know of any guidelines that are not in the "Awesome AI Guidelines" list, please do give us a heads up or feel free to add a pull request!
