Crucially, Azure ML customers can now build their models trained on image data, without writing any training code. Should you want to do that anyway, writing the models for computer vision tasks is possible, thanks to the Azure ML Python SDK.
The overarching goal of the solution is to “easily build and optimize computer vision models while offering flexibility and control over the entire model training and deployment process.”
The reports are packaged in an easy-to-use dashboard. Furthermore, you can export your data to BigQuery, break everything down by product, region, and month, and see how you can reduce your emissions.
Google is following Microsoft, which has shared their Microsoft Emissions Impact Dashboard before the company from Mountain View, California. One has to praise the moves from tech giants to enable their clients to become more “green” in an effort to avoid a global climate catastrophe.
25 Years of KDE
Plasma, KDE’s project; one of the most popular desktop environments for Linux distributions (distros), turned 25 last week. It is known to the world as one of the best-looking environments for Linux distros out there.
Exactly at 9 o’clock, Matthias Ettrich emailed “de.comp.os.linux.misc” group with the title “New Project: Kool Desktop Environment. Programmers wanted!” He needed help developing the environment, and a set of apps to go along with it. As he noted towards the end, his project was destined to get negative feedback, as this was not what Linux developers wanted at the time:
BTW: Usually these postings get a lot of answers like "Use a Mac if you want a GUI, CLI rules!", "I like thousands of different widgets-libraries on my desktop, if you are too stupid to learn them, you should use windoze", "RAM prices are so low, I only use static motif programs", "You will never succeed, so better stop before the beginning", "Why Qt? I prefer schnurz-purz-widgets with xyz-lisp-shell. GPL! Check it out!", etc. Thanks for not sending these as followup to this posting :-) I know I'm a Dreamer…
Twenty-five years later, and you may enjoy using KDE on Fedora, Ubuntu, and other popular Linux distros. To celebrate the anniversary, the world got to install a new release of the environment, numbered 5.23.
Congratulations to the whole KDE Team for their quarter of a century running, and here’s to another 25 years!
Stylex - Facebook’s New CSS-in-JS Solution
A simple demonstration of the library:
Interestingly, as you add more styles, the size of your styles does not increase too much. The CSS stops growing after a bit — the library generates utility classes that get reused.
