An exciting collaboration blog post between Seldon and Microsoft that outlines best practices and practical steps to deploy a GPT-2 Model with Triton ONNX Runtime using Seldon Core in Azure Kubernetes.
HuggingFace CEO joins the MLOps podcast to dive into conversation around the challenges and best practices of deploying large language / transformer-based models in production.
A classic in the performance space which outlines some of the biggest pitfalls of performance evaluation - although this talk was presented a while ago, it is as relevant today in the MLOps space as it is in the general microservice performance evaluation context.
A fantastic and comprehensive online course from MIT that covers an introduction to the different areas of deep learning, and provides quite a breadth on all the sub-topics it spans across.
An extensive analysis on the core principles and logical architecture of data meshes. It covers the premise and motivations, and proposes concepts such as data as product, self serve data platform, federated computational governance, and the principles that surround these.
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!
