LogicPlum Releases Major Update to Streamline Artificial Intelligence for Enterprises


Enterprise AI solutions platform LogicPlum has released its latest update to improve functionality and practicality on its automated machine learning platform. Because it is extremely difficult to find data scientists who can do all these tasks well, it is likely an organization would have to hire an expert for each category. That is where LogicPlum comes in. LogicPlum can assist in every aspect of these sub-specialties. LogicPlum Chief Technology Officer Anoop Muraleedharan said, "We are committed to helping organizations experience maximum benefit from their AI solutions. We are uniquely positioned to help companies understand the challenges they face, in addition to the opportunities they have, with AI innovation. Our LogicPlum 3.0 platform release has been precisely constructed to accelerate organizations that are becoming AI-driven."

Khadas VIM3 NPU ToolKit Release & Video Demo


We've reviewed VIM3 with Android 9 shortly after launch, but until recently it was not possible to leverage the NPU since the software was not quite ready yet. The goods news is that Khadas has now released the NPU toolkit for both VIM3, and the cheaper VIM3L boards. The toolkit works in host PCs running Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04 with Tensorflow framework, and inference can run on both Linux and Android OS in Khadas VIM3/3L board. It includes an Inception v3 sample with 299 299 sample photos, among other demos. You'll find documentation to get started with model conversion and inference in Linux on Khadas Wiki.

Microsoft releases LightGBM


Microsoft has been really increasing their development of tools in the predictive analytics and machine learning space. Another such tool they released recently is LightGBM. From the Github site... LightGBM is a fast, distributed, high performance gradient boosting (GBDT, GBRT, GBM or MART) framework based on decision tree algorithms, used for ranking, classification and many other machine learning tasks. Microsoft is definitely increasing their attempts to capitalize on the machine learning and big data movement. I hope they continue to develop tools such as LightGBM and R with SQL Server.
