Robust & Responsible AI Newsletter - Issue #3

Every quarter we send out a roundup of the hottest MLOps and Data-Centric AI news including industry highlights, what’s brewing at WhyLabs, and more.

ISSUE: September 2022

🕚  TL;DR

Trying to keep up with MLOps, but only have 10 minutes? Here is your shortlist:

Read: Monitoring data the simple way. WhyLabs’ new monitoring system makes alerts more helpful and manageable so users can focus on improving their models instead of worrying about them in production.

Run: The wait is over! After spending years iterating on different architectures and features, BentoML has officially released v1.0.0, calling it the standard model serving architecture of the future!

Attend: Data-Centric AI Summit. Want to learn how to put data-centric AI into practice in the real world? Register for Bernease Herman’s talk on adapting experimental data-centric AI principles for production ML systems at this event brought to you by AIIA and the Data-Centric AI Community!

💡 Open Source Spotlight

There's a lot going on in the world of open source tooling! Here is what's new:

Finding new homes. After developing one of the world’s most popular open-source annotation tools, learn why Intel is moving CVAT development under the OpenCV umbrella. Also, PyTorch, one of the primary platforms for AI research, announced its move to the Linux Foundation!

Who doesn’t enjoy a unified interface? released UnionML for seamless creation of web-native machine learning applications. Learn more about the new unified interface for ML and data tools!

Let your imagination run wild! Craiyon (formerly Dalle-E mini), is a free, open-source AI that produces amazing images from text inputs. Read about Craiyon’s AI model or try it for yourself - but watch out, it’s addictive!
