Targeting at openness and advancing state-of-art technology, Microsoft Research (MSR) had also released few other open source projects.

  • OpenPAI : an open source platform that provides complete AI model training and resource management capabilities, it is easy to extend and supports on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments in various scale.
  • FrameworkController : an open source general-purpose Kubernetes Pod Controller that orchestrate all kinds of applications on Kubernetes by a single controller.
  • MMdnn : A comprehensive, cross-framework solution to convert, visualize and diagnose deep neural network models. The "MM" in MMdnn stands for model management and "dnn" is an acronym for deep neural network.
  • SPTAG : Space Partition Tree And Graph (SPTAG) is an open source library for large scale vector approximate nearest neighbor search scenario.
  • nn-Meter : An accurate inference latency predictor for DNN models on diverse edge devices.

We encourage researchers and students leverage these projects to accelerate the AI development and research.
