An interesting article posing a call to action to encourage similar principles and philosophies present in open source software development in the AI model training world, namely outlining the benefits on communication, cooperation, ineroperability, contributions, backwards compatibility and more.
Our CppCon 2021 talk is now out 🚀 In this session we provide a hands on introduction to cross-vendor GPU acceleration for general compute using C++ as well as machine learning use-cases using the Vulkan & Kompute open source projects.
An overview of some key software development roles and specialisations that have currently grown to become some of the highest paid roles, ranging across architecture, cloud, web, mobile and data.
The data exchange podcast comes back this week in conversation with AI21 Labs Co-founder and Stanford Professor Yoav Shoham where they dive into the power of NLP and language models as well as key opportunities and the future in the field.
This article provides an interesting set of concepts analogous to the philosophy behind the "mythical man-month" through parallel computing systems concepts, showing the relationship between increased stakeholders and output.
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!
