💡 Open Source Spotlight
There's a lot going on in the world of open source tooling! Here is what's new:
ZenML's been busy this quarter. After a year of community feedback, ten months of development effort, and tens of thousands of code changes, ZenML has unveiled two major releases - see what’s new in the release notes.
Simplified data science workflows. Incorporating extensive user feedback, MLflow 2.0 simplifies data science workflows and delivers innovative, first-class tools for MLOps. Dive into the details of the new release and learn how to get started!
Profiling large amounts of data just got easier. Users can now use Fugue with whylogs on top of Spark, Dask, or Ray, to easily profile large-scale data for use cases such as anomaly detection, drift detection, and data validation.
📚 What MLOps experts are reading
Keeping up with the latest on MLOps can be a full-time job. Here are the highlights:
The future of NLP is bright. Check out a new guide to the high-impact, fast-changing technology driving huge growth in AI research, applications, and investment.
Technology readiness levels for ML systems. Nature Communications published a framework that defines a principled process of Machine Learning system formation, from research to production, for various domains and data scenarios.
The gap between aspiration and reality. 84% of organizations view responsible AI as a top management issue, but only a quarter have mature RAI programs. Learn more about the research highlighting RAI aspiration vs. reality in the report.
☕️ What’s brewing at WhyLabs
At WhyLabs, we are focused on making AI observability as easy and intuitive as your coffee machine. Here are our latest releases:
When it comes to an ML monitoring solution - should you build or buy? We’ve written a guide to help you make the right decision with detailed discussions of both options. Download your copy now!
WhyLabs integration highlights. With the whylogs and Apache Spark integration, users can achieve large scale data profiling and easily apply it into existing data and ML pipelines. Also, AIShield and WhyLabs have partnered to make it trivial for companies relying on AI to maintain the security and reliability of their models.
ML monitoring in under 5 minutes. It only takes a few minutes and a few lines of code to monitor your ML models and data pipelines. This short post will show you how to monitor common issues with your ML models, such as data drift, concept drift, data quality, and performance!
