As part of the flurry of announcements coming this week out of AWS re:Invent, Amazon announced the release of Amazon SageMaker Operators for Kubernetes, a way for data scientists and developers to simplify training, tuning and deploying containerized machine learning models. Packaging machine learning models in containers can help put them to work inside organizations faster, but getting there often requires a lot of extra management to make it all work. Amazon SageMaker Operators for…"New Amazon tool simplifies delivery of containerized machine learning models"
Even to an experienced carpenter, it may not be obvious what the best way is to build a structure they’ve designed. A new digital tool, Carpentry Compiler, provides a way forward, converting the shapes of the structure to a step-by-step guide on how to produce them. It could help your next carpentry project get off the screen and into the shop. “If you think of both design and fabrication as programs, you can use methods…"‘Carpentry Compiler’ turns 3D models to instructions on how to build them"
Yesterday, Apple launched its new 16-inch MacBook Pro. This was notable for one major reason: the keyboard. Apple has backtracked on its controversial butterfly design and has gone back to the old design: the scissor switch. Or, as Apple refers to it: the Magic Keyboard. While the butterfly experiment appears to be over, the reality of day-to-day life with this keyboard isn’t. And Apple needs to do something about that. For those who haven’t been following…"Apple’s gone back to its old keyboard — now it should replace the butterfly models for free"

Apple has never released…"New ceramic and titanium Apple Watch models spotted in watchOS 6 beta"
Today, Procore, a construction software company, announced Procore BIM (Building Information Modeling), a new tool that takes advantage of Apple hardware advances to bring the 3D construction model to iOS. Dave McCool, senior product manager at Procore, says that architects and engineers have been working with 3D models of complex buildings for years on desktop computers and laptops, but these models never made it into the hands of the tradespeople actually working on the building.…"Procore brings 3D construction models to iOS"
Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge It looks as though Apple’s iPad lineup will get a bit bigger.

The site reported earlier this month…"Apple might release two additional iPads models this year"
Valve has released 3D files to help people build mods and accessories for its new Index virtual reality headset. The gaming company posted high- and low-resolution models â€” along with other documentation â€” on GitHub under a Creative Commons license. Anybody can download and use the files to design their own creations, but they can’t sell anything without getting clearance from Valve first. The Index headset, which started shipping last week, is a high-end VR…"Valve released 3D models so anyone can mod the Index VR headset"
Today, Google Cloud announced Kubeflow pipelines and AI Hub, two tools designed to help data scientists put to work across their organizations the models they create. Rajen Sheth, director of product management for Google Cloud’s AI and ML products, says that the company recognized that data scientists too often build models that never get used. He says that if machine learning is really a team sport, as Google believes, models must get passed from data…"Google Cloud wants to make it easier for data scientists to share models"
