[openstack-dev] [new][cognitive] Announcing Cognitive - a project to deliver Machine Learning as a Service for OpenStack

0 votes

Hi!

It is a great pleasure to announce the development of a new project called
Cognitive. Cognitive provides Machine Learning [1] as a Service that
enables operators to offer next generation data science based services on
top of their OpenStack Clouds. This project will begin as a StackForge
project baed upon an empty cookiecutter [2] repo. The repos to work in are:
Server: https://github.com/stackforge/cognitive
Client: https://github.com/stackforge/python-cognitiveclient

Please join us via iRC on #openstack-cognitive on freenode.

We will be holding a doodle poll to select times for our first meeting the
week after summit. This doodle poll will close May 24th and meeting times
will be announced on the mailing list at that time. At our first IRC
meeting, we will draft additional core team members. We would like to
invite interested individuals to join this exciting new development effort!

Please commit your schedule in the doodle poll here:
http://doodle.com/drrka5tgbwpbfbxy

Initial core team: Steven Dake, Aparupa Das Gupa, Debo~ Dutta, Johnu
George, Kyle Mestery, Sarvesh Ranjan, Ralf Rantzau, Komei Shimamura, Marc
Solanas, Manoj Sharma, Yathi Udupi, Kai Zhang.

A little bit about Cognitive:
Data driven applications on cloud infrastructure increasingly rely on
Machine Learning. Most data driven applications today use Machine Learning
(ML). This often requires application developers and data scientists to
write their own machine learning stack or deploy other packages to do any
kind of data science based applications. Data scientists also need to have
an easy way to rapidly experiment with data without having to write basic
infrastructure for data manipulations. Cognitive is a Machine Learning
service on top of OpenStack and provides machine learning based services to
tenants (API, workbench, compute service).

For information about blueprints check out:
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cognitive
https://blueprints.launchpad.net/python-cognitiveclient

For more details, check out our Wiki:
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Cognitive

Please join the awesome Cognitive team in designing a world class Machine
Learning as a Service solution.

We look forward to seeing you on IRC on #openstack-cognitive.

Debo~ Dutta (on behalf of the initial team)

From my little experience, "drafting" core members before even actually
having a code base has drawbacks. Also, it seems the initial starting team
is already large enough for ensuring support for 1 or 2 release cycle.

Hey! What's the Neutron PTL doing there? Sorry we need his reviews we can't
loan it to you!

I wonder what kind of services you would offer; also you could have shared
something about the architecture of this service. Is it providing a full
machine learning stack, or just facilitating the use of existing one?

But I see that there's a link to a wiki page below. This might have all the
answers.

... and unfortunately the wiki is empty ;)

Hi Salvatore

Thanks a lot for your comments.

Timing: Yes it is time to do this! The nature of applications running on
clouds is indeed changing.

Initial group: We asked around for folks interested and we got a lot more
people than we expected. The idea is to get something out there in a stack
forge project and build something good. This group already has people who
have built things like this already in the past. Hence confident about the
success.

Participation: We want this to be inclusive from scratch independent of who
is a PTL or a contributor or merely a curious individual to give us ideas
:) The community will get it right. Maybe I should have clarified that
these are the members interested in seeing this happen.

Wiki page: The wiki page will be ready in 1-2 days. Also we would like to
have a discussion during the summit to see what we should build in the
community. Would be delighted to get your thoughts.

Services: Some of the services this could provide:
* create experiments: define data sources, train models, then perform
classification, clustering, data cleaning etc.
* have experiment templates that can be reused
* have an editor (maybe a horizon plugin) to drag and drop the workflow and
generate an API that when called from an app would provide results
* ML primitives that could be targeted initially: 1) classification 2)
clustering 3) Anomaly detection

thx

Hi,

as there is no any details on the project yet done, if this project will
deploy ML frameworks it'll be direct duplication of Sahara's functionality
(we already support HDP and CDH deployments and they are provided tons of
tools for ML). So, I think that it could be built on top of Sahara or even
as part of Sahara probably. I'd like to propose you to take a deeper look
on Sahara and avoid duplicating it.

Thanks.

Hi Sergey

Thanks a lot for your interest. The bare bones API proposal is up on the
wiki page http://wiki.openstack.org/Cognitive

Sahara is about deploying and managing big data workloads like hadoop,
spark etc. Cognitive is about a simple API to do predictive analytics,
learning, data science workflow etc etc. Thus the goals are different. AWS
has Elastic MapReduce (in the same space as Sahara) and also AWS Machine
Learning (http://aws.amazon.com/machine-learning/) for which there is no
parallel. Should we point them to our internal 1st version of Cognitive on
our github which we opened.

If it requires to use big data toolchains to do our job, we will definitely
leverage Sahara for that, and not replicate the good work done in Sahara.
Our primary goal is to build (within the community) a simple machine
learning API (and a service) that abstracts the pain of data science for
the app developer.

thx

PS: FWIW I am at the summit till tonight so we could catch up here.

One more thing and a typo in my mail - we would be happy to point folks
to an very early version (in Django) we prototyped and opened up recently.

So, in case if Cognitive will use Sahara to create big data clusters - then
it sounds ok.

Hi Sergey

Thanks a lot for your interest. The bare bones API proposal is up on the
wiki page http://wiki.openstack.org/Cognitive

Sahara is about deploying and managing big data workloads like hadoop,
spark etc. Cognitive is about a simple API to do predictive analytics,
learning, data science workflow etc etc. Thus the goals are different. AWS
has Elastic MapReduce (in the same space as Sahara) and also AWS Machine
Learning (http://aws.amazon.com/machine-learning/) for which there is no
parallel. Should we point them to our internal 1st version of Cognitive on
our github which we opened.

If it requires to use big data toolchains to do our job, we will
definitely leverage Sahara for that, and not replicate the good work done
in Sahara. Our primary goal is to build (within the community) a simple
machine learning API (and a service) that abstracts the pain of data
science for the app developer.

thx

PS: FWIW I am at the summit till tonight so we could catch up here.

Hi,

as there is no any details on the project yet done, if this project will
deploy ML frameworks it'll be direct duplication of Sahara's functionality
(we already support HDP and CDH deployments and they are provided tons of
tools for ML). So, I think that it could be built on top of Sahara or even
as part of Sahara probably. I'd like to propose you to take a deeper look
on Sahara and avoid duplicating it.

Thanks.

Hi Salvatore

Thanks a lot for your comments.

Timing: Yes it is time to do this! The nature of applications running
on clouds is indeed changing.

Initial group: We asked around for folks interested and we got a lot
more people than we expected. The idea is to get something out there in a
stack forge project and build something good. This group already has people
who have built things like this already in the past. Hence confident about
the success.

Participation: We want this to be inclusive from scratch independent of
who is a PTL or a contributor or merely a curious individual to give us
ideas :) The community will get it right. Maybe I should have clarified
that these are the members interested in seeing this happen.

Wiki page: The wiki page will be ready in 1-2 days. Also we would like
to have a discussion during the summit to see what we should build in the
community. Would be delighted to get your thoughts.

Services: Some of the services this could provide:
* create experiments: define data sources, train models, then perform
classification, clustering, data cleaning etc.
* have experiment templates that can be reused
* have an editor (maybe a horizon plugin) to drag and drop the workflow
and generate an API that when called from an app would provide results
* ML primitives that could be targeted initially: 1) classification 2)
clustering 3) Anomaly detection

Hi!

It is a great pleasure to announce the development of a new project
called Cognitive. Cognitive provides Machine Learning [1] as a Service
that enables operators to offer next generation data science based services
on top of their OpenStack Clouds.

I was indeed wondering when "Machine Learning as a Service" would come
up...

This project will begin as a StackForge project baed upon an empty
cookiecutter [2] repo. The repos to work in are:
Server: https://github.com/stackforge/cognitive
Client: https://github.com/stackforge/python-cognitiveclient

Please join us via iRC on #openstack-cognitive on freenode.

We will be holding a doodle poll to select times for our first
meeting the week after summit. This doodle poll will close May 24th and
meeting times will be announced on the mailing list at that time. At our
first IRC meeting, we will draft additional core team members. We would
like to invite interested individuals to join this exciting new development
effort!

From my little experience, "drafting" core members before even
actually having a code base has drawbacks. Also, it seems the initial
starting team is already large enough for ensuring support for 1 or 2
release cycle.

Please commit your schedule in the doodle poll here:
http://doodle.com/drrka5tgbwpbfbxy

Initial core team: Steven Dake, Aparupa Das Gupa, Debo~ Dutta, Johnu
George, Kyle Mestery, Sarvesh Ranjan, Ralf Rantzau, Komei Shimamura, Marc
Solanas, Manoj Sharma, Yathi Udupi, Kai Zhang.

Hey! What's the Neutron PTL doing there? Sorry we need his reviews we
can't loan it to you!

A little bit about Cognitive:
Data driven applications on cloud infrastructure increasingly rely on
Machine Learning. Most data driven applications today use Machine Learning
(ML). This often requires application developers and data scientists to
write their own machine learning stack or deploy other packages to do any
kind of data science based applications. Data scientists also need to have
an easy way to rapidly experiment with data without having to write basic
infrastructure for data manipulations. Cognitive is a Machine Learning
service on top of OpenStack and provides machine learning based services to
tenants (API, workbench, compute service).

I wonder what kind of services you would offer; also you could have
shared something about the architecture of this service. Is it providing a
full machine learning stack, or just facilitating the use of existing one?

But I see that there's a link to a wiki page below. This might have
all the answers.

... and unfortunately the wiki is empty ;)

Please join the awesome Cognitive team in designing a world class
Machine Learning as a Service solution.

We look forward to seeing you on IRC on #openstack-cognitive.

Debo~ Dutta (on behalf of the initial team)

Debo,

The Sahara cats are having a contributors meetup right now in room 218. @ ODS. I have prior commitments so won’t be able to attend, but perhaps some of the cognitive folks could make the meetup there.

Sergey,

If the Sahara contributors plan on walking the city tonight, feel free to send me info off-list and I’ll try to make it.

Regards
