We are thrilled to announce that Chief Scientist Alejandro Saucedo will be giving a keynote at NeurIPS 2021 at the LXAI workshop this coming December 7th 🚀 The virtual tickets are free so come join us at this fantastic event to hear about a broad range of topics in state of the art machine learning research & applications. Until then, you can also join upcoming talks this week at CppCon 2021 and PyData Global 2021 🤖
Github Staff Machine Learning Engineer Hamel Husain joins the Data Exchange podcast and provides great insights on the areas of CI/CD for ML, MLOps tools and processes, and how much software engineering should data scientists know.
The Annual State of AI report has come out, providing an outline of very interesting development of AI, and covers the areas of research, talent, industry, politics and predictions.
A great practical perspective from Shopify Engineering on their perspective around building machine learning models in industry, which covers practical advise to question the relevance, requirements, measurements, plans, and stability when considering ML in practical contexts.
A great high level article providing 20 points of advise from a long career in software engineer, aiming to outline a set of principles that are important to consider for a meaningful and consciencious approach to software as a applicable and useful craft.
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!
