Using iter8 and Kiali to evolve your cloud applications while gaining insights into their behavior

IBM Research has partnered with Red Hat to bring iter8 into Kiali. Iter8 lets developers automate the progressive rollout of new microservice versions. From Kiali, developers can launch these rollouts interactively, watch their progress while iter8 shifts user traffic to the best microservice version, gain real-time insights into how competing versions (two or more) perform, and uncover trends on service metrics across versions.

The Open Science Prize: Solve for SWAP gates and graph states

We're excited to announce the IBM Quantum Awards: Open Science Prize, an award totaling $100,000 for any person or team who can devise an open source solution to two important challenges at the forefront of quantum computing based on superconducting qubits: reducing gate errors, and measuring graph state fidelity.

AI Data Tracker Encourages Scientific Research into COVID-19 Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions

What impact do measures such as shelter-in-place, mask wearing, and social distancing have on the number of COVID-19 cases? How do the COVID-19 quarantine measures that have been implemented by North American countries compare to South American countries? These are just a few questions about the wide range of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) that have been applied by governments, globally.

Efficient Deep Learning Training on the Cloud with Small Files

Here I describe an approach to efficiently train deep learning models on machine learning cloud platforms (e.g., IBM Watson Machine Learning) when the training dataset consists of a large number of small files (e.g., JPEG format) and is stored in an object store like IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS). As an example, I train a […]

Probabilistic Programming with Pyro in WML

In a previous post we explained how to write a probabilistic model using Edward and run it on the IBM Watson Machine Learning (WML) platform. In this post, we discuss the same example written in Pyro, a deep probabilistic programming language built on top of PyTorch. Deep probabilistic programming languages (DPPLs) such as Edward and […]

Probabilistic Programming with Edward in WML

Edward is a deep probabilistic programming language (DPPL), that is, a language for specifying both deep neural networks and probabilistic models. DPPLs draw upon programming languages, Bayesian statistics, and deep learning to ease the development of powerful AI applications. Probabilistic languages let the user express a probabilistic model as a program with an intuitive formalism […]

Ocean Tensor Package: General-Purpose Software for Tensor Computation

Recent years have brought a tremendous proliferation of hardware acceleration and computation devices such as GPUs and FPGAs to address the ever-increasing need for computational power. Deep learning, which requires the processing of large volumes of data through computationally intensive neural networks, has both been enabled by and driven the development of advanced computational hardware. […]

Restoring Balance in Machine Learning Datasets

If you want to teach a child what an elephant looks like, you have an infinite number of options. Take a photo from National Geographic, a stuffed animal of Dumbo, or an elephant keychain; show it to the child; and the next time he sees an object which looks like an elephant he will likely […]
