Kompute is promoted to Incubation level at the Linux Foundation 🚀 Kompute is an open source project that enables developers to introduce GPU acceleration to their projects across 1000s of cross-vendor GPUs (NVIDIA, AMD, Qualcomm & Friends) for machine learning and advanced data processing use-cases. This reflects the matury and adoption of Kompute across the OSS community.
The University of Bonn has released a fantstic resource for practitioners to learn Modern C++ for Computer Vision covering key foundational and advanced concepts through 10 video lectures, including build tools, core libraries, programming concepts, memory management and hands on projects.
Another useful resource from the MLOps community that provides a suggested set of resources that can be used for progressive learning to build a deeper understanding on core MLOps concepts and best practices.
This article provides insights from various practitioners and technology leaders in the machine learning space on how Kubernetes is currently being used and extended to support the key funcionalities required for production-grade machine learning at scale.
An interesting article that explores the architectural and practical challenges that rise when adopting ETL at scale, and covers the way they introduced some solution such as delegating processing into 3rd party systems for relevant processing.
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!
