IEML Chief Scientist & Seldon Engineering Director Alejandro Saucedo is covering best practices, architectural patterns and practical examples of continuous integration/delivery for production machine larning at massive scale, enabling for thousands of models in Kubernetes.
The Data Exchange podcast comes back this week to dive into conversation with Discord Senior Machine Learning Engineering Manager Gaurav Chakravorty to share insights on building industrial grade machine learning systems for search, recommenders, and personalization systems at Discord.
The second part of the positively received Kubernetes documentary is out. A fantastic overview of the history and principles behind this successful open source orchestration framework which is increasingly adopted in the MLOps space, diving into fascinating insights on relationships and tensions with Mesos, Docker, CentOS and beyond.
Fuzzylabs Cofounder Matt Squire joined the MLOps London Meetup last week to cover their version of their canonical stack for MLOps, covering key OSS projects including DVC, Sacred, ZenML, Seldon Core and Evidently.
A great resource that aims to provide a high level cheatsheet for a broad range of machine learning algorithms, together with a visual grouping that allows for fast lookup for refrence.
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!
