Kubernetes AI & ML Day Talks
The Kubernetes AI day took place at this year's KubeCon Conference, and all the videos are now available for free streaming. This great resource includes content that ranges across productionisation of ML in the context of experimentation, deployment, inference, monitoring and beyond.
An interesting initiative that extends Google's research paper on ML Cards defining metadata of models, into the MLOps space. This blog post proposes a schema for production models that outlines attributes of deployed models that could be standardised for better interoperability across broader systems.
This blog post provides a practitioner perspective into MLOps, namely providing an intuition on the nuanced differences between traditional DevOps and MLOps. It dives into the end to end stages of the ML lifecycle including training, deployment, monitoring and further resources.
The Data Exchange podcast delves into conversation with DXC Technology Head of AI Jerry Overton, where they discuss centres of excellence for AI, automation in the workforce, human-centered AI and responsible ML.
Andrew Ng Courses on MLOps
Andrew Ng has released a new fantastic resource that aims to demystify the field of MLOps with a theoretical and practical coursera specialisation on the field, where they cover the different areas of MLOps across four courses.
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!
