Join us this week at both PyCon HK and/or NLP Summit 2021 where we'll be giving keynote talks where we'll cover how to accelerate NLP at scale with a GPT2 model using ONNX, Triton, Seldon Core & Tempo.
AI O'Reilly's Mike Loukides shares the results of a survey on salaries in the Data & AI space, providing some perspective on the job market for this growing field, and although it is currently geographically limited provides some insights on the sub-trends of challenges, gaps, opportunities and trends.
The OSS Alibi Detect project has published a comprehensive introduction and overview of the drift detection which covers the high level concepts required to understand some of the key components, as well as relevant references to dive into more detail for any practitioners interested.
A high level article that provides an introduction to the fast-growing and broad field of MLOps, including a lot of images and diagrams to introduce new practitioners to the field and common concepts.
Julia Computing Co-Founder and CEO Viral Shah dives into conversation on the data exchange podcast where he covers interesting insights on the Julia language and community, as well as some updates on the goals and objectives with their recent Series A investment.
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:
  • 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!
