Microsoft NNI and Kubeflow – continued support and a way to tune hyperparameters – 

Microsoft released version 1.3 of their NNI project. NNI is Microsoft’s Neural Network Intelligence project, it lets you search for the best neural network architecture and hyperparameters. 

Microsoft NNI supports Kubeflow, where NNI can take the place of Katib, the native hyperparameter tuner in Kubeflow. While there are clear efficiency related benefits of using Kubernetes native Katib, for users that are using Azure Kubernetes, NNI now gives another option.

TensorFlow for Video Analytics – With the ever-increasing importance of object detection the application of machine learning is attracting a lot of interest. The article discusses how TensorFlow is used to identify objects like humans, puppies, faces, etc. The article is a good getting started tutorial for people looking to get their hands dirty with machine learning. 


Using Machine Learning for Weather Prediction – Machine learning being prevalent is not going to miss out on something as important as the weather! Check out this AI research piece from Google on how to improve weather forecasts with real-time data using machine learning compared to existing techniques with ~3 hours of latency. The improvements can lead to significantly better forecasts on weather events that are time-sensitive. You may be able to take that picnic in the sun without rain showers.


Spotify Personalization with Machine Learning – Ever wondered how Spotify gets most of the song recommendation on your Spotify Home right? With machine learning, yes! Spotify engineering delivers and improves its recommendation system using a standardized ML framework including TensorFlow Extended, Kubeflow and the Google Cloud Platform Ecosystem. There is also a presentation by Tony Jebara on the topic that can be viewed here.
