  • The Next Ubuntu Wallpaper Contest Needs to Focus on Quality

    A new long-term support release of Ubuntu is on the way, and so too is a brand new Ubuntu wallpaper contest.

    In recent years long term support releases of Ubuntu have tended to include a “greatest hits” package of supplementary wallpapers, often sourced from those that won wallpaper competitions in the preceding three releases.

    That approach has a logic to it as an LTS release, is, in many ways, a “best of” itself. Plus, there’s some real honour for those whose art is selected to ship in a version of Ubuntu that gets used across tens of millions of desktops, as opposed to just a few hundred thousand (which is still a pretty awesome feat, as is).

    But for the next LTS Ubuntu’s community team is going back to basics. They’re going to run a wallpaper contest that community artists, professional and amateur alike, can take part in. Further details on the contest are going be be announced at some point, but they’ve already begun hyping it up on their social media.

  • Smart, agile MLOps on any cloud – Canonical releases Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 | Ubuntu

    Today, the Canonical Data Platform team announced the release of Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 – the state-of-the-art MLOps platform. The new release enables data science teams to securely collaborate on AI/ML innovation on any cloud, from concept to production.

    Charmed Kubeflow is free to use: the solution can be deployed in any environment without constraints, paywall or restricted features. Data labs and MLOps teams only need to train their data scientists and engineers once to work consistently and efficiently on any cloud or on-premise. Charmed Kubeflow offers a centralised, browser-based MLOps platform that runs on any conformant Kubernetes – offering enhanced productivity, improved governance and reducing the risks associated with shadow IT.

    The latest release adds several features for advanced model lifecycle management, including upstream Kubeflow 1.4 and support for MLFlow integration.

    Data scientists can get started today with Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 using Juju, the unified operator framework for hyper-automated management of applications running on both virtual machines and Kubernetes. The new release is in the CharmHub stable channel now, and can be deployed to any conformant Kubernetes cluster using a single Juju command.

  • Canonical releases Charmed Kubeflow 1.4 to simplify enterprise AI projects

    Canonical Ltd. on Tuesday released Charmed Kubeflow 1.4, the newest version of its platform for simplifying enterprise artificial intelligence projects.

    U.K.-based Canonical is the maker of Ubuntu, one of the most widely used versions of the Linux operating system. Ubuntu is especially popular in the enterprise, where it’s commonly used to power public cloud environments. The operating system is frequently deployed together with Kubernetes.

    A growing number of enterprises are running AI models in their Kubernetes environments to support machine learning initiatives. In 2018, Google LLC released an open-source tool called Kubeflow to simplify the task of running AI software on Kubernetes. Canonical’s newly updated AI platform, Charmed Kubeflow, is a customized version of Google’s Kubeflow designed to be easier to use.

    Canonical provides the software under an open-source license. In addition to Kubeflow’s core features, Charmed Kubeflow includes automation code that the company says simplifies a number of day-to-day management tasks. The software can be deployed in the public cloud, as well as on-premises.

  • Reproducible Builds: Supporter spotlight: Jan Nieuwenhuizen on Bootstrappable Builds, GNU Mes and GNU Guix

    The Reproducible Builds project relies on several projects, supporters and sponsors for financial support, but they are also valued as ambassadors who spread the word about our project and the work that we do. This is the fourth instalment in a series featuring the projects, companies and individuals who support the Reproducible Builds project. We started this series by featuring the Civil Infrastructure Platform project and followed this up with a post about the Ford Foundation as well as a recent ones about ARDC and the Google Open Source Security Team (GOSST). Today, however, we will be talking with Jan Nieuwenhuizen about Bootstrappable Builds, GNU Mes and GNU Guix.
