Oracle has opened the source code of the GraphPipe tool to simplify the maintenance of machine learning models. It supports projects based on the TensorFlow, MXNet, Caffe2 and PyTorch libraries. They are intended for use in IoT-devices, custom web-services and corporate AI-platforms.

The tool eliminates the need for developers to create custom APIs. Also, it eliminates confusion when using multiple frameworks and prevents memory copying during deserialization. The developers hope that GraphPipe will become a standard tool for deploying models.

GraphPipe is free and available on GitHub. It consists of open source tools designed to work with artificial intelligence. For example, the TensorFlow framework and the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) project for creating portable neural networks are among them.

In September 2017, Microsoft introduced own tools for operating with machine learning. At the same time, the company released utilities for using Visual Studio Code when creating models based on the CNTK and Keras frameworks.

Neural Network to Create Educational Videos

The Automontazh project consists of 2 subsystems and is designed for automatic video lectures creating, no human editor needed

Russian engineers from SPbPU taught the neural network how to mount video lectures. It will help to quickly create educational videos.

The "Avtomontazh" (auto editing) project has been developed since 2017. It consists of two subsystems: "Autoslide" and "Auto Operator". The first automatically combines the video with the presentation of the lecturer. It receives two files and puts slides on the video in the right places. The second one receives a general plan video from different cameras and creates a final video: builds a plan, frames, changes angles.

The system has not yet entered the market, it is still being tested and finalized. However, the educational project "Lectorium", the owner of "Automontazh", is already using the program for processing finished lectures.
