At ApacheCon North America, Felix Cheung, member of the Project Management Committee (PMC) for Apache Spark, Zeppelin, and Incubator, will be leading the Big Data, Machine Learning and Streaming tracks. Below is what to expect from the Machine ... [More] Learning Track. Also, be sure to check out Felix’s full podcast interview on our Machine Learning Track Feathercast. Plus, find the full series of ApacheCon Q&As and Feathercasts interviews with Felix and other track leaders below along with helpful links.. Q: Tell us about the Machine Learning Track? A: We have two tracks on machine learning focused on platform innovations and deep learning. We have several new projects and some of these are incubating projects like TVM, MXNet, and Project Submarine, which is part of Hadoop. Another exciting feature that’s part of the Machine Learning Track is Apache MXNet. This project is incubating right now under the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) but has grown and evolved over the last couple of years. I am excited to have a homegrown project from Seattle, where I’m located, grow to become a worldwide project. One thing MXNet is doing is providing another approach to observing deep learning and our track will offer several related presentations about this topic. Apache TVM provides a way to bring the machine learning model and have it optimized for a different hardware type. For example, GPU and FPGA, are some of the accelerated hardware that can be run on Apache TVM using deep learning. We have world-renowned speaker, Tianqi Chen, who is the brain behind TVM, MXNet, and XGBoost. He created all these projects and we are excited to have him present at our ApacheCon Machine Learning Track.  Q: What makes this a must-attend track? A: The Machine Learning Track will focus on all aspects of machine learning and deep learning frameworks. We will explore how it runs on top of the big data ecosystem using Hadoop and how it seamlessly integrates with these frameworks. For example, we will look at how to integrate it with the data source and have it run on Hadoop Submarine and also other projects, like Apache Zeppelin, while remaining interactive and effective. I encourage everyone to check out the Machine Learning Track at ApacheCon for more information about these concepts. I'm looking forward to there machine learning presentations. This is an area that is growing and evolving quickly and I'm happy to see there's more attention given to this area. I definitely suggest checking out ApacheCon and coming out to learn about these innovations.  ApacheCon Q&As and Feathercasts  * ApacheCon Q&A and Feathercast with Rich Bowen * Big Data Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Streaming Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Machine Learning Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Geospatial Software Track Q&A and Feathercast with Geoge Percivall * Geospatial Software Track Q&A and Feathercast with Geoge Percivall Important Dates and Deadlines * Register at https://apachecon.com/acna19/. * Discounted Hotel Rooms: Book your room before prices go up 29 August!

What’s interesting about this track is that we received an overwhelming response from the community in terms of submitting streaming-related speaking proposals. We decided to have this as a dedicated track so that we can focus on the many interesting learning uses cases. There will be a lot of interesting presentations on different projects like Kafka as well as newer projects  Q: What can attendees look forward to at this track? A: The Streaming Track provides great ways to learn about trends, newer developments and innovations. Companies will be interested in learning more about Interactive Query and Streaming SQL developments. The Streaming SQL presentation will address the entire topic and examine how to resolve relationships between streaming data and syntax extension in regards to carrying data that comes along within stream processing. We will have Kenneth Knowles and very knowledgeable people from different companies presenting this information about this space, including Julian Hyde. Meeting and talking to project leads and committers in person is another valuable benefit to attending the track. By asking questions and learning, attendees can find themselves working with these projects as well.   ApacheCon Q&As and Feathercasts  * ApacheCon Q&A and Feathercast with Rich Bowen * Big Data Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Streaming Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Machine Learning Track Q&A and Feathercast with Felix Cheung * Geospatial Software Track Q&A and Feathercast with Geoge Percivall * Geospatial Software Track Q&A and Feathercast with Geoge Percivall Important Dates and Deadlines * Register at https://apachecon.com/acna19/. * Discounted Hotel Rooms: Book your room before prices go up 29 August!

Hi all. Today, we will briefly show you about PHP7.4 support which will be available in the next NetBeans version i.e. NetBeans 11.2. First of all, I strongly hope that new features are tested by PHP users before NetBeans 11.2 is released ... [More] because there should be bugs. Definitely, we need your help! If you are interested in them, please test it. You can download a dev version here. Then, we could merge new changes quickly thanks to our committer Tomas Mysik. Thanks a lot for your review, Tomas! PHP 7.4 Support To enable it, you have to set PHP 7.4 as the PHP version of your PHP project. (Right-click your project node, click Project Properties.) NetBeans provides support for the new syntaxes for PHP 7.4. Null Coalescing Assignment Operator Spread Operator in Array Expression Numeric Literal Separator Typed Properties 2.0 Arrow Functions 2.0 New Hints Suggestion for converting a simple closure to an arrow function Suggestion for using combined assignment operators Of course, code completion, formatting, go to declaration, and mark occurrence features for the above syntaxes should also be fixed. That's all for today. As always, please test it. You can download a development version from Jenkins Build. If you find some issues or enhancements, please report them to JIRA with your exact steps to reproduce them. (Components: php - Editor). Thanks. [Less]

Today the Apache MXNet community is pleased to announce the 1.5.0 release of Apache MXNet deep learning framework. We would like to thank the Apache MXNet community for all their valuable contributions towards the MXNet 1.5.0 release. With this ... [More] release, we bring the following new features to our users. For a comprehensive list of major features and bug fixes, please check out the full Apache MXNet 1.5.0 release notes. Automatic Mixed Precision (experimental) Training Deep Learning networks is a very computationally intensive task. Novel model architectures tend to have increasing numbers of layers and parameters, which slow down training. Fortunately, software optimizations and new generations of training hardware make it a feasible task. However, most of the hardware and software optimization opportunities exist in exploiting lower precision (e.g. FP16) to, for example, utilize Tensor Cores available on new Volta and Turing GPUs. While training in FP16 showed great success in image classification tasks, other more complicated neural networks typically stayed in FP32 due to difficulties in applying the FP16 training guidelines. That is where AMP (Automatic Mixed Precision) comes into play. It automatically applies the guidelines of FP16 training, using FP16 precision where it provides the most benefit, while conservatively keeping in full FP32 precision operations unsafe to do in FP16. To learn more about AMP, check out this tutorial . MKL-DNN: Reduced precision inference and RNN API support Two advanced features, fused computation and reduced-precision kernels, are introduced by MKL-DNN in the recent version. These features can significantly speed up the inference performance on CPU for a broad range of deep learning topologies. MXNet MKL-DNN backend provides optimized implementations for various operators covering a broad range of applications including image classification, object detection, and natural language processing. Refer to the MKL-DNN operator documentation for more information. Dynamic Shape(experimental) MXNet now supports Dynamic Shape in both imperative and symbolic mode. MXNet used to require that operators statically infer the output shapes from the input shapes. However, there exist some operators that the output depends on input data or input arguments. Now MXNet supports operators with dynamic shape such as contrib.while_loop, contrib.cond, and mxnet.ndarray.contrib.boolean_mask Large Tensor Support Before MXNet 1.5.0, MXNet supports maximal tensor size of around 4 billon (2^32). This is due to uint32_t being used as the default data type for tensor size, as well as variable indexing. Now you can enable large tensor support by changing the following build flag to 1: USE_INT64_TENSOR_SIZE = 1.(Note this is set to 0 by default) This enabled large scale training for example large graph network training using Deep Graph Library. Dependency Update MXNet has added support for CUDA 10, CUDA 10.1, cudnn7.5, NCCL 2.4.2, and numpy 1.16.0. These updates are available through PyPI packages and build from source, refer to installation guid for more details. Gluon Fit API(experimental) Training a model in Gluon requires users to write the training loop. This is useful because of its imperative nature, however repeating the same code across multiple models can become tedious and repetitive with boilerplate code. We have introduced an Estimator and Fit API to help facilitate training loop. Additional feature improvements and bug fixes In addition to the new features, we have the following improvement on existing features, performance, documentation, and bug fixes: Improved experience with front-end APIs: Python, Java, Scala, C++, Clojure, Julia, Perl, and R Several important performance improvements on both CPU and GPU Fixed 200+ bugs to improve usability Added 10+ examples/tutorials and 50+ documentation updates 100+ updates on build, test, and continuous integration system to improve MXNet contributor experience Getting Started with MXNet: To get started with MXNet, visit the install page. To learn more about MXNet Gluon interface and deep learning, you can follow our comprehensive book: Dive into Deep Learning. It covers everything from an introduction to deep learning to how to implement cutting-edge neural network models. You can check out other related MXNet tutorials, MXNet blog posts, MXNet Twitter and MXNet YouTube channel. Have fun with MXNet 1.5.0! Acknowledgements: We would like to thank everyone from the Apache MXNet community for their contributions to the 1.5.0 release. [Less]

As we countdown the days and weeks to ApacheCon North America, we invited Rich Bowen, Apache Software Foundation’s Vice Present of Conferences, to talk about all the great things that we’ve got coming your way in Las Vegas at ApacheCon, 9-12 ... [More] September. Also, be sure to check out Rich’s full interview on our Apache Feathercast podcast. Q: ApacheCon will feature four days of Apache project content, including Big Data, Mobile, Machine Learning, Cloudstack, Cassandra. Share with us how ApacheCon has changed over time since you’ve been with the Foundation? A: We've been working toward a completely project-led schedule for the last few years, which is a big change from the early days. I'm excited about this year's event because this is the year that this approach has really come to fruition. Our projects are actually running their own content, which is interesting to see. What we do is ask our projects, "Do you want to put on your own conference? We'll handle the logistics. You bring the content." We had 17 projects this year say “yes”. We also have tracks on Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, we have the Community Track, which you'll be hearing about in an upcoming Feathercast interview with Sharan Foga. The Community Track answers the questions about what Apache is, how it works, and how can you build communities inside Apache. Ahead of the conference, we’ll be talking with many other Track Leaders including Giles Sirett who heads up the CloudStack Collaboration Conference, George Percivall who will lead the Geospatial Track, and Felix Cheung who will lead the Machine Learning and Streaming Tracks. Q: How will the ApacheCon keynotes and tracks provide attendees the opportunity to learn about how “The Apache Way” and help projects thrive? A: A lot of people in technology are working with one or more of our technologies already. But ApacheCon is the place to come and talk with the people who make that technology happen -- both to influence the paths that those projects take and to learn from the deep experts how to do your job better. I'm especially excited about some of our keynotes for this year’s event. Award-winning author and futurist David Brin, "father of Java," David Gosling, and 10-year-old CoderBunnyz/One Billion Kids Can Code founder Samaira Mehta will share their expertise on a wide range of topics including STEM, AI, SETI, java programming, privacy and national security. It's a long-running joke around ApacheCon that I use it to gather my heroes on stage so that I can meet them. And this year is no exception. Q: As the ASF looks to celebrate its 20th anniversary at ApacheCon, how has the “Apache Way” evolved over time? What kinds of "Tomorrow's Technology Today" projects can we expect to see at the conference? A: The ASF was founded 20 years ago with just two projects and now we've grown to 200 projects. Over the years, we've seen several inflection points in technology that have been driven by the Apache Software Foundation. For example, Apache is very instrumental in the development of the machine-learning and artificial-intelligence software eco-system with Hadoop and Spark and other related projects – things in the news today. What I’d say to potential attendees is that ApacheCon is the place to come to find out what you're going to be working on in the future. The future is invented at the ASF in our projects, which ultimately have a major impact in the technology world. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas at ApacheCon. We’ll spend four days learning about the latest innovations from dozens of Apache projects and their communities. === APACHECON NORTH AMERICA 2019 IMPORTANT DATES AND DEADLINES -- Sign up at https://apachecon.com/acna19/ -- Discounted Hotel Rooms: Book your room before 19 August!
