The Kompute Project joins the Linux foundation to further the cross-vendor GPU Computing ecosystem for AI, Machine Learning and Advanced Data Processing use-cases, enabling practitioners to accelerate their applications across AMD, NVIDIA, Qualcomm & Friends over 1000s of graphics cards 🚀
MLOps London is a new meetup that is looking to bring together practitioners that work with production machine learning, and will be doing their first kick-off event this coming month which can be joined both online and in-person.
The concept of feature stores has been growing in popularity in recent years, and the concepts it encompasses tend to be relatively ambiguous. This post provides a comprehensive overview of the concept, motivations, architectures and use-cases for feature stores.
A great short article that provides practical tips and tricks when using python for data science through useful libraries, frameworks and code snippets.
Distinguished CMU ML Professor Rayid Ghani dives into conversation together with cofounder Andrew Burt in the Data Exchange podcast where they discuss how organisations are developing ways to audit ML models for discrimination, bias and other risks.
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!
