The MLOps London meetup comes back with its 2nd online & on-prem session looking to bring together practitioners that work with production machine learning, and will be doing their first kick-off event this coming month.
Insightful piece from Standford AI Lab blog covering retrieval-based NLP systems that provide state-of-the-art capabilities for tasks like answering open-domain questions and verifying complex claims.
The KubeCon 2021 North America conference videos have now been published. These are a fantastic resource for MLOps practitioners to gain insights around key trends in the Kubernetes world including observability, security, real world applications, best practices and more.
The Data Exchange podcast dives into conversation with Anomalo CTO to cover key insigths in the area of data quality, and provide some insights on data engineering, most important chalelnges, end-to-end dataops and more.
An interesting and succint overview that aims to extract key lessons from a career of software development, providing 31 different high level ideas that aim to capture best practices and lessons.
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!
