The relatively new startup behind the Metaflow Open Source project has put together a fantastic introduction as well as hands on examples that reflect the principle "Data Scientists Don’t Need to Know Kubernetes with Metaflow".
Our CppCon2021 talk is out and has been gathering momentum in the C++ community, covering best practices for GPU acceleration across cross-vendor GPUs using Vulkan and the Kompute project, as well as hands on examples for ML and low-level optimizations.
The team at Seldon has announced the 1.0 release of an ML inference server that focuses on Python based models, providing extendable runtimes to create reusable runtimes, and key features such as MLFlow integration, multiprocessing, adaptive batching + more.
The Data Exchange podcast dives into conversation with Outerbounds Co-founder Savin Goyal to discuss about his previous work at Netflix led into the open sourcing of Metaflow, a framework to adddress challenges of data science around version control and scalability.
A fantsatic resource on interpretable machine learning which dives into a robust taxonomy for explainability related terms, as well as a deep dive into the current state of the ecosystem.
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!
