Azure Project Bonsai - Physical CartPole Project
In my previous post I revisited the Bonsai platform. Now it's time to actually start preparing to put it into production! (this will become more clearer over time 😉) To start off with a spoiler: Project Bonsai - It's impressive! 😎
The Azure Project Bonsai Platform Revisited
It has been almost an entire year ago since I have visited the Bonsai platform that I covered in my previous post. Since then a lot changed on the platform, so the time has come to revisit it and see in more detail what exactly changed (on the surface of course)!
Schedule Kubernetes CronJob to restart pods automatically
For a project I needed a way to automatically schedule pods to be deleted every 3 hours. This was due to the nature of the project where we wanted a cleanup in memory due to zombie processes appearing. It's not a clean fix, but it was necessary for production to run stable while we were patching things.
Tutorial - Creating an Email Microservice with Typescript and Dapr
Once in a while a new project comes out that I am totally hyped about! Dapr is such a Project! In this article I would like to go in-depth on how we can quickly (< 10min!!!) create a Microservice that will send an email through a Microservice invocation mechanism!
How to set up a Typescript Project with Yeoman
Typescript is quite cumbersome to set-up... it's not built in in Node.js but it is important to write stable code with type checking. Since I write a lot of Typescript projects, it's quite handy to have an explanation on how to set-up a typescript project quickly.
Gradually adopting Autonomous Systems in Production
Reinforcement Learning is something I have been covering a while now! Lately, I have seen this space growing tremendously but keep on seeing the same issue arising each time: "How can I as a company with an existing infrastructure / applications (= brownfield) adopt Reinfocement Learning?"
Analyzing ML/RL Model Performance with Azure Synapse Analytics Spark Pools
I have been following Azure Synapse Analytics since it was still in development and the mock-ups were not finished yet. The vision that Azure Synapse Analytics brings is simply amazing, bringing an End-to-End analytics platform that seamlessly mixes SQL Dedicated, SQL On-Demand, and Spark to prepare, analyze and publish your data needs.
Machine Learning Operations - MLOps explained
MLOps is the continuation of DevOps, extended for Machine Learning. It allows data scientists, data engineers, application developers, and the operations team to collaborate, reducing the time from model creation towards first production deployment.
Creating a Raspberry PI Cluster (1 Raspberry Pi & 4 Pi Zeros) with Cluster Hat
A couple of years ago, I decided to buy a Raspberry PI cluster with Clusterhat. In all that time however, I never too the time to configure it correctly to make it able to run Kubernetes. So now I decided to invest some time and get some learnings back from it!
Implementing Deepmind's MuZero Algorithm with Python
Deepmind has achieved a huge milestone by publishing its latest paper around Reinforcement Learning in Nature - 23/DEC/2020. How they were able to train a Reinforcement Learning algorithm that masters Go, Chess, Shogi and Atari without needing to be told the rules.
