Portability of code and environment is one of the challenge every data scientist faces. The code can be framework dependent or it can be machine dependent. The end result – A model that works like a charm on one machine might not do so on another.

Last week we saw a couple of significant developments in this regard – first, it was announced that Pandas would no longer be supported on Python 2 from next year. Then, we saw Intel open source nGraph, a framework-neutral compiler, library and runtime that allows you to run models on various devices.

Apart from these, this past week saw other huge developments in the machine learning industry. Google has created a deep neural network that can detect cancer in real-time, Cars.com is using machine learning to predict sales and to enrich the buyer experience, and other fascinating ongoings were covered in AVBytes last week.
