Get started with MLOps
A very comprehensive overview of the MLOps journey covering every phase of the ML lifecycle including development, testing, versioning, registries, governance, deployment, monitoring feedback, A/B testing and beyond.
An interesting end to end deep dive on a practical industry-specific usecase building a clinical data drift monitoring system in Azure with Databricks and MLOps, covering the objectives, concepts, architecture, and solution.
Better Abstractions in Prod ML
The data exchange podcast brings together a conversation with former Uber DL Leader Travis Addair, where they cover the need for better abstractions in ML. In this podcast they dive into the his work in the Horovod deep learning framework, as well as Ludwig which is the toolbox that allows users to train and test deep learning models without the need to write code.
A deep dive into the diverse world of anomaly detection. In this blog post they cover a tour of techniques including Isolation Forest, Local Outlier Factor, One-Class SVM, Autoencoders, Robust Covariance Estimator and Time Series Analysis
Revisiting Dev Design Patterns
The design patterns book is a classic in computer science. The author Klaus Iglberger has put together a great video where he shares his thoughts on facts and missconceptions about some of the key architecture patterns from the book, a great resource for MLOps and ML Engineering practitioners.
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!
