Hugging Face Launches Optimum
Hugging Face, a developer-facing open source project, launched Optimum, a platform for building open-source Transformers optimization tools at scale, with over 100,000 lines of code. At Hugging Face, we strive to create the tools that transform the software development lifecycle. Hugging Face is an open source project, made possible by a team effort.
It might be easy to think of a toolkit like this as a glorified optimisation tool for the optimisation of systems. By contrast, I want something that can be used at a much larger scale as a more general, open-ended technology. It’s not simply an optimisation toolbox, but a framework for solving problems across a wide range of application domains. If the goal is to give users the ability to solve problems quickly, I wanted a product that works well from a software engineering perspective, and the ability to scale to large numbers of users. So, in the two years since my PhD thesis, I’ve built this tool.
I’m Hugging Face. Before you read, this is a story about how I got here, who I am, and what I do.
I’ve been working on Hugging Face since 2005, and I’ve tried to keep that time and experience aligned with my current work. As such, I’m really happy to announce Hugging Face’s first major release.
As a graduate student from 2006 to 2010, I’d been thinking about what kinds of tools I could build in my spare time, projects to get me through those years of student life. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to work on a set of research projects at Stanford University’s Software Engineering Institute. My contributions to these projects included writing many of the tools that are included in Hugging Face, and testing them at scale. I’m really proud that these tools are free and open-source. I’m grateful to the students, faculty, and staff at the Software Engineering Institute that trusted and supported me into my graduate studies.
After graduation, I moved to New Zealand, where I worked at the University of Auckland on machine learning projects. I returned to Australia in 2011, where I continued the work I started in New Zealand, helping with the creation of machine learning tools for the Australian National Data Service (ANDS). In 2013 and 2014, I worked as an assistant professor at the University of Canberra on more software engineering projects, and then joined the Open Science Graduate School at the Australian National University.
Optimum: An optimisation toolkit for transformers at scale.
The authors have developed an optimisation toolkit using high-level code libraries and existing optimisation primitives of an existing system.  It has some simple tools for speeding up the process of optimising for optimality, and some complex tools for optimising for minimality.  The tools are based on existing transformers and some new optimisation primitives. | Full Text: The authors have developed a toolkit that is capable of applying an optimisation policy that optimises a problem in a way that achieves all the objectives. This optimisation toolkit, Optimum, optimises transformers in a data-driven way, with a high degree of flexibility and support for existing transformers and optimization primitives. The resulting optimisation results are typically very good. | Full Text: In this tutorial, we will apply the optimisation toolkit to some toy problems of a specific application area. | Full Text: In the future, we are planning to extend the optimisation toolkit with support for more of the existing optimisation primitives to further increase the speed and ease of optimisation results. Optimum is an optimisation toolkit for optimising transformers at scale. It has some simple tools for speeding up the process of optimising for optimum, and some complex tools for optimising for optimum and minimality. The resulting optimisation results are typically very good.
The authors have developed an optimisation toolkit and an optimisation service: 1 Optimisation toolkit, Optimum, optimises transformers at scale; 2. An optimisation service for the optimisation toolkit; 3. A demonstration system; 4. An example optimization problem solution.
This paper describes the development of a framework for optimising transformers at scale, including optimisation tools and service APIs, where existing optimisation methods are integrated into the framework. The framework supports optimising for both optimal and (often more) minimum-cost solutions. A demonstration system is presented to illustrate the application of various techniques in the framework. The optimisation problem was chosen to be challenging, representative of a standard application area, and have some general features: the objective may not necessarily be feasible or optimisable at a given instant in time, and/or the objective is non-linear.
Optimisation of the Range calibration
The range calibration of the equipment is critical for the quality of the products. In many cases, it is performed manually on the basis of the measurements of the power of current or the power of voltage. This procedure involves the calibration of the range between the minimum value of the equipment, which is preset in the equipment and can be measured with a digital voltmeter, and the maximum value of the equipment. The values of both the minimum and maximum value of the equipment, which are preset in the equipment, define the ranges for their calibration. Due to the inherent errors to measurement of such ranges, the ranges from the preset values are determined on the basis of the measured values using the following equations:The range between the minimum value of the equipment and the maximum value of the equipment is represented by:Rmmin=min(Vin)Rmmax=max(Vout)Where Rin =Minimum current value of the range (V). Rmmin, Rmmax = Minimum and maximum value of the range (V). When it is assumed that an ideal current is 1 mA, the range Rin will be from 1 to 1. 61 mA (Rin=1 mA) and the range Rmmin will be from 0. 973 mA (Rmmin=0. However, in reality, the measurement can be made up to 9 to 13 times higher than this value, and the difference in the values of the range Rmmin and Rmmax can be up to 0. Since this deviation is large, the differences in both of the currents can get close to 0. 02 mA if the actual values of the currents are 0 mA or more. The current values from the measured values of the range are denoted as Rmin, Rmax, and by using the following equations can also be obtained:Rmin=min(Vin)Rmax=max(Vout)where Rin = Minimum current value of the range (V). Rinmin, Rmax = Minimum and maximum value of the range (V).
Joining the Discord Server.
I’m joined by a friend of mine, who is also a writer at SjMag.
friend Chris Cuthbert (who is also a writer at SjMag) in joining the Discord Server.
I won’t try to give the official rules or reasons for joining, because we can discuss that on the Discord Server and they might differ from the official rules.
Server, post here and we’ll try to sort it out.
Because that could mean being on the same server with someone else’s person.
This is a great idea, because this is also where the official chat channels live.
So, I’m joining in as well.
If you are using something like Skype or Discord for the first time, it probably does not work on a Linux machine.
So, if you already have a working Linux machine, you probably should use that instead. The cost of a Linux machine isn’t huge. However, the cost of the Linux machine isn’t free. And buying it with a discount is usually not a good idea.
So, if you are going to buy a paid computer and don’t already have a working Linux machine, I recommend you invest in a Linux machine as well.
If you are going to use Skype and Discord, I recommend you first switch to a Windows machine. I’ve even bought Windows machines myself because I thought if I wanted to keep using Skype and Discord that I would need a Mac, even though my Windows machine has a Mac Pro. But if I had to choose Windows over a Mac, I’d probably go with Windows.
So, you can skip this one completely.
But, if you want to switch to a Linux machine, you probably should go to the Ubuntu page first. It might be difficult for a new Linux user to understand, but it’s worth it.
Tips of the Day in Computer Hardware
I’m happy to announce that I’m back with another edition of the Windows Phone Hardware Advice column. In part one, we discussed the pros and cons of Windows Phone 7 in general, including features (such as the camera) that were missing from the platform due to Microsoft’s decision to abandon phones running Windows Phone 7 in favor of the less well-received Windows Phone 8. In this installment, we talk about the new camera and how some of the new features in Windows Phone 7. 5—like the ability to record video, access contacts via Cortana, and access Windows Live Essentials on the fly—still make it worthwhile. In the comments, users share their experiences.
We started our day with an overview of Windows Phone 7, a brief recap of Windows Phone 7. 5’s changes compared to the new Windows Phone 8, and a look at a bunch of apps running on the new platform. Next, we’ll talk about how you can use Windows Phone 7. 5 to access the best apps, and then we’ll check out the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 950 XL.
