Charmed Kubeflow now integrates with MindSpore


on 8 November 2022

This article is more than 1 year old.

The integration allows users to leverage deep learning for AI/ML projects within the MLOps platform

On 8 November 2022, at Open Source Experience Paris, Canonical announced that Charmed Kubeflow, Canonical’s enterprise-ready Kubeflow distribution, now integrates with MindSpore, a deep learning framework open-sourced by Huawei. 

Charmed Kubeflow is an end-to-end MLOps platform with optimised complex model training capabilities designed for use with Kubernetes. Part of a robust set of integrations, the new, native integration with MindSpore provides access to unified APIs and end-to-end AI capabilities for model development, execution and deployment. MindSpore offers AI-native execution modes, fully using the computing power provided by Huawei’s hardware.  

MindSpore: an innovative AI framework with wide industry adoption

Industry partners and developers have actively participated in MindSpore’s development since it first became open source in 2020. MindSpore serves over 5,000 businesses and has been downloaded over 2.49 million times. More than 6,600 developers have contributed code to the program, and more than 110 universities and 40 top research institutes have used MindSpore for scientific research and teaching. 

MindSpore is optimised for Huawei hardware, such as Ascend/GPU/CPU, and can be quickly deployed in cloud, edge and mobile scenarios, allowing engineers to develop solutions for a wide spectrum of use cases. MindSpore runs on the Jupyter Notebook, a web-based interactive computing platform. When creating the Notebook, engineers can choose the MindSpore image from the default Jupyter Lab image list, assign certain CPU resources and spin up a notebook instance that can run MindSpore and its Vision suite code to do machine learning experiments.

Robust integrations for MLOPs at scale 

By providing a native integration with MindSpore and collaborating with Huawei on this open-source project, Canonical is providing the MLOPs ecosystem with an increasingly rich toolset. Charmed Kubeflow integrates with multiple AI/ML tools, such as MLFlow, which provides a central model registry, and Spark, which facilitates data streaming.  The MindSpore integration provides access to the solution’s various features,  such as unified programming and operators, automatic model partitioning and dynamic and static computation graphs.
