Our VentureBeat article on Responsible AI is now live 🚀 AI will become ubiquitous over the next decade and like any technology, it poses personal, societal, and economic risks. In this article we dive into some of the principles from The Institute for Ethical AI & Machine Learning that ensure the responsible development, design and operation of AI systems.
The Google Research team has published an overview of the key research themes at Google from 2021 and beyond, covering general-purpose ML models, efficiency improvements, growing benefits, and deeper understanding.
The team behind the Alibi Explain project has put together a comprehensive introducion and deep dive into the key concepts of explainability in machine learning, including intuition, background, examples and relevant references.
An interesting exploration across the growing number of architectures from leading tech giants on production machine learning systems, diving into common patterns, components across the ML lifecycle, requirements for massive scale and more.
As part of the continued trend of software engienering best practices making it to the machine learning lifecycle, this interesting article provides a practical overview on how to introduce robust validation and testing to the machine learning lifecycle leveraging the Deepchecks tooling.
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!
