NeurIPS 2021 wrapped up last week and was an absolutely fantastic conference! Our opening keynote at the LXAI Workshop on "Meditations on First Deployment: A Practical Guide to Responsible AI" is now available for streaming online 🚀
Twitter shares an insightful insight into a recent architectural migration to one of their core data systems that process ~400 billion events in real time generating petabyte scale data every day. They provide an overview of the old and new architecture, as well as the performance resutls when evaluating the new kafka dataflow system.
FastAI Co-founder Rachael Thomas shares in a new blog post a case study that covers the importance of data in real-world challenges, covering in particularly a national covid tracking application.
The Data Exchange podcast comes back this week with an insightful conversation with Accern CTO Anshul Pandey, where they dive into specific challenges of building AI and NLP applications within the financial services.
An interesting resource that aims to provide a comprehensive amount of content serving as a learning path for data science covering 26 weeks of broad educational content.
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!
