The final schedule for the NeurIPS 2021 LXAI Workshop has been published on the website 🎉 join us on December 7th where we will be delivering the opening keynote on "Meditations on First Deployment: A Practical Guide to Responsible AI" 🚀
Reddit Staff Engineer Garrett Hoffman provides an overview on Reddit's re-architecture journey for their internal machine learning model deployment and serving systems, covering perfromance, scalability, maintainability, reliability, observability and more.
An interesting overview of the different areas of confidential computing as well as their challenges and opportunities, including homomorophic encryption, differential privacy, federated learning, etc.
An overview of the challenges organisationas are currently and will be increasingly facing around data, including the areas of modularity, specialisation, clarity, and buy-in.
An interesting project that aims to provide intuitive ways of creating mind maps and showing an application showing the learning path for machine learning covering foundational concepts such as statistics, calculus, optimization, and more.
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!
