Within the SODALITE H2020 project, one of the areas we are focusing on is the deployment of optimized containers with accelerator-specific ML models for Edge-based inference across heterogeneous Edge Gateways in a Connected Vehicle Fleet.
SODALITE is building a scalable tool to exploit the mountain images from web cams and user photos to estimate the snow pack in predict water availability in Alpine lakes.
The back-end for practically any new software application domain, from healthcare to aerospace, is in the data centre.
In recent years, the global market has seen a tremendous rise in utility computing, which serves as the back-end for practically any new technology, methodology or application-level advancement, from healthcare to aerospace.
One aspect of Sodalite is to monitor the usage of the resources on a Cluster and to use that information to adjust applications and their deployment to improve their performance.
Artificial Intelligence, the attempt to create an intelligent agent, gained popularity with the success of AlexNet for image recognition in 2012. The proposed combination of stacked neural networks (called Deep Neural network) and the use of GPUs to drastically reduce network training times compared to previous iterations, led to a boom in the use of such networks for image recognition and speech recognition.
This post is about Software Engineering and its perception in the technical field. You may remember that we launched a survey, where we tried to identify and better understand the role of Software Engineering in different technology sectors.
Infrastructure as code (IaC) simplify the provision and configuration of the IT infrastructure at scale. Enterprises are increasingly adopting IaC. For example, Intercontinental Exchange, who owns exchanges for financial and commodity markets, and operates 12 regulated exchanges and marketplaces, maintains 75% of its 20,000 servers using IaC scripts . As the size and complexity of the IaC projects increase, it is critical to maintain the code and design quality of IaC Scripts.
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is a novel paradigm that makes system administrators’ work quite similar to the work of programmers. In fact, today system administrators (sysadmins) do not have to manually perform the provisioning, configuration, and deployment processes as they can exploit some IaC languages to write pieces of code which automate such processes and can be executed more and more times.
A short introduction to Semantic Technologies, and SODALITE’s approach for their application in the software engineering domains.
