With applicability of artificial intelligence and machine language becoming pervasive across various sectors in India and around the world, noted tech giants are now open-sourcing more and more of their AI and ML projects.

This is a good sign of organic growth in the field because AI enthusiasts believe phasing out black box model will eventually de-escalate the risks associated with it. This will also allow coders to understand the breadth and depth of the technology and use it for the larger good.

Taking The White Box Route

With tech giants like Google, Facebook and Amazon completely betting on the ‘openness‘ of AI, it is certain that in the coming years, we sure are going to hear some big news related to the tech. According to recent reports, open source AI can increase innovation, enable faster time-to-market products, and lower the costs of production for companies.

Google: While Google unveiled its open source machine learning framework TensorFlow as early as 2015, today, the framework is used by companies like Airbnb, Uber, SAP, eBay, to name a few. It is currently available in Python, C++, Haskell, Java, Go, Rust, and most recently, JavaScript.

Amazon: Following in Google’s step, Amazon opened up its internal machine learning courses to developers. The company see this an opportunity to hire more efficient people so as to accelerate its growth. Talking to a leading online portal after its launch, Matt Wood, Amazon’s, GM of deep learning and AI said, “The coursework helps consolidate best practices, and demonstrates how to get started on a range of AWS machine learning services, including Amazon SageMaker, AWS DeepLens, Amazon Rekognition, Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, and Amazon Comprehend.”

IBM: In yet another major step towards democratising AI’s functionality, IBM too jumped into the open-source bandwagon with its Fabric for Deep Learning (FfDL). The software is available through GitHub. The service is provided along with Watson Studio and it is equipped with tools for data scientists, application developers and subject matter experts.

Elaborating about the features of FfDL, IBM said in a post, “The platform uses a distribution and orchestration layer that facilitates learning from a large amount of data in a reasonable amount of time across compute nodes. A resource-provisioning layer enables flexible job management on heterogeneous resources, such as GPUs and CPUs on top of Kubernetes.”

Facebook: The latest addition to the AI/ML open-source club is none other than Facebook. On 19 December, the company made the announcement that it will open source the code and data of Deep Focus, the AI rendering system powering Half Dome, its next-generation prototype VR headset. “With DeepFocus and Half Dome, we now have the tools to better understand how realism contributes to the user’s experience in VR and AR. And though we’re currently using DeepFocus with Half Dome, the system’s deep learning–based approach to defocusing is hardware agnostic,” Oculus said in a post.

OpenAI: But as big names are betting on AI/ML, OpenAI, a non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research company was set-up by Elon Musk and Sam Altman as a counter-movement to ensure the technology wasn’t being exploited. Both the founders were concerned about existential risk from artificial general intelligence, leading them to establish the NGO as a check-and-balance measure. Their pool of 60 permanent staff and engineers work towards discovering and enacting the path to safe artificial general intelligence. The company publish at top machine learning conferences, open-source software tools for accelerating AI research globally. Vishal Sikka, the former Infosys CEO, is also a board member of the group and Infosys in among its main sponsors and participant.

Amazon AWS launches database to challenge blockchain

The Amazon QLDB database is only obtainable in performance but offers an “apparent, unchallengeable, cryptographically demonstrable ledger …

Amazon recently declared a new type of centralized database marked at being a contestant to permissioned blockchains. The Amazon QLDB database is only obtainable in performance but offers an “apparent, unchallengeable, cryptographically demonstrable ledger database service”. Those are few of the features that permissioned blockchains aim to achieve.

Numerous industries fear the entry of Amazon, particularly insurance and banking. But Amazon starting a blockchain contestant is a fasten out of the blue. Chiefly because it was a comparative straggler in starting a new blockchain hosting.

As per Ragnar Kruse, CEO, all participants in the online advertising and real-time bidding market segments are interested in transparency throughout the entire lifecycle of an online ad auction, from the initial auction to the winning bid, and ultimately through to the final impression delivery and who it’s actually shown to,”. “Since we act as a centralized point of trust in this value chain, we’re really excited about Amazon QLDB.

Gartner has been noticing many common denominators in talented multi-company or consortia-led blockchain projects, of which AWS QLDB satisfies the second and third. The mainstream of industry and participants require a blockchain where every member has admittance to the same type of source of truth. The information is immutable and cannot be erased or efficient.

A cryptographically and self-sufficiently demonstrable audit track is required to content the use case, for instance, to show the origin or state of an asset.

The numerous members in the blockchain groups all have a conferred interest in its achievement, and there is no single entity in direct control of all actions. These features are not readily available using traditional legacy technologies and are core components to user interest in adopting blockchain and distributed ledger technology.

Amazon conjointly declared the launch of Amazon Managed Blockchain. Usually, to participate in a very permissioned blockchain, every node on a permissioned network must found out the hardware, install code, and tack access and network settings. Scaling systems could be a challenge as a result of there’s a desire to observe the network and manage handiness. The new absolutely managed blockchain service aims to handle these pain points.

Currently, the service supports Hyperledger cloth and Ethereum. It permits the network to span multiple AWS accounts and tack code, security and network settings. It uses the AWS Key Management Service, therefore there ought no to found out secure key storage. the corporate claims the network will scale to thousands of applications running uncountable transactions.

Perhaps as a nod to the scaling, one feature could be a pick API to permit members to poll whether or not to feature or take away members. Given most permission networks have formal agreements that’s quite an curious giving, tho’ probably the pickability could be enclosed in future governance agreements.

In some ways in which this product is competitory with Azure worktable tho’ the latter has a lot of intensive options.

The DTCC provides settlement solutions for stock and derivatives markets. “As crucial monetary market infrastructure, the business depends on U.S. to produce innovative solutions that scale back risk, increase transparency and evolve with market and regulative wants,” same Rob Palatnick, decision maker, Chief Technology designer, DTCC.

“We believe that blockchain technology represents a people chance to re-imagine post-trade infrastructure. We tend to area unit happy to be mistreatment Amazon Managed Blockchain to explore prospects with Hyperledger cloth, wherever we are able to still lead business initiatives round the exploration and adoption of blockchain. Amazon Managed Blockchain automates the preparation of blockchain infrastructure, transferral high handiness and sturdiness in a very absolutely managed package, fast the adoption of distributed ledger technology.”
