OpenAI Embeddings

Embedding vectors (or embeddings) play a central role in the challenges of processing and interpretation of unstructured data such as text, images, or audio files. Embeddings take unstructured data and convert it to structured, no matter how complex, so they can be easily processed by software. OpenAI offers such embeddings, and this article will go over how they work and how they can be used.

Take Control of ML Projects

The decision to move Elasticsearch to proprietary licensing awakened a sleeping giant. The open source community rapidly flexed its muscle to ensure a true open source option for fast and scalable search and analytics—which many users depend on for ML projects—would continue to be available. The result is OpenSearch, a community-driven hard fork of Elasticsearch 7.10.2, built with Apache Lucene and available under the fully open source Apache 2.0 license.

Anomaly Detection as a Service with Metrics Advisor

We humans are usually good at spotting anomalies: often a quick glance at monitoring charts is enough to spot (or, in the best case, predict) a performance problem. A curve rises unnaturally fast, a value falls below a desired minimum or there are fluctuations that cannot be explained rationally. Some of this would be technically detectable by a simple automated if, but it's more fun with Azure Cognitive Services' new Metrics Advisor.

Let’s visualize the coronavirus pandemic

Since February, we have been inundated in the media with diagrams and graphics on the spread of the coronavirus. The data comes from freely accessible sources and can be used by everyone. But how do you turn the source data into a data set that can be used to create something visual like a dashboard? With Python and modules like pandas, this is no magic trick.
