What's New in TensorFlow 2.5

After version 2.4, the Google Brain team has now released the upgraded version of TensorFlow, version 2.5.0. The latest version comes with several new and improved features. TensorFlow 2.5 now supports Python 3.9, and TensorFlow pip packages are now built with CUDA11.2 and cuDNN 8.1.0. In this article, we discuss the major updates and features of TensorFlow 2.5.0.

Major Features and Improvements

  • Support for Python3.9 has been added.
  • tf.data:
    • tf.data service now supports strict round-robin reads, which is useful for synchronous training workloads where example sizes vary. With strict round robin reads, users can guarantee that consumers get similar-sized examples in the same step.
    • tf.data service now supports optional compression. Previously data would always be compressed, but now you can disable compression by passing compression=None to tf.data.experimental.service.distribute(...).
    • tf.data.Dataset.batch() now supports num_parallel_calls and deterministic arguments. num_parallel_calls is used to indicate that multiple input batches should be computed in parallel. With num_parallel_calls set, deterministic is used to indicate that outputs can be obtained in the non-deterministic order.
    • Options returned by tf.data.Dataset.options() are no longer mutable.
    • tf.data input pipelines can now be executed in debug mode, which disables any asynchrony, parallelism, or non-determinism and forces Python execution (as opposed to trace-compiled graph execution) of user-defined functions passed into transformations such as map. The debug mode can be enabled through tf.data.experimental.enable_debug_mode().
  • tf.lite
    • Enabled the new MLIR-based quantization backend by default
    • The new backend is used for 8 bits full integer post-training quantization
    • The new backend removes the redundant rescales and fixes some bugs (shared weight/bias, extremely small scales, etc)
    • Set experimental_new_quantizer in tf.lite.TFLiteConverter to False to disable this change
  • tf.keras
    • tf.keras.metrics.AUC now support logit predictions.
    • Enabled a new supported input type in Model.fittf.keras.utils.experimental.DatasetCreator, which takes a callable, dataset_fnDatasetCreator is intended to work across all tf.distribute strategies, and is the only input type supported for Parameter Server strategy.
  • tf.distribute
    • tf.distribute.experimental.ParameterServerStrategy now supports training with Keras Model.fit when used with DatasetCreator.
    • Creating tf.random.Generator under tf.distribute.Strategy scopes is now allowed (except for tf.distribute.experimental.CentralStorageStrategy and tf.distribute.experimental.ParameterServerStrategy). Different replicas will get different random-number streams.
  • TPU embedding support
    • Added profile_data_directory to EmbeddingConfigSpec in _tpu_estimator_embedding.py. This allows embedding lookup statistics gathered at runtime to be used in embedding layer partitioning decisions.
  • PluggableDevice
  • oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN) CPU performance optimizations from Intel-optimized TensorFlow are now available in the official x86-64 Linux and Windows builds.
    • They are off by default. Enable them by setting the environment variable TF_ENABLE_ONEDNN_OPTS=1.
    • We do not recommend using them in GPU systems, as they have not been sufficiently tested with GPUs yet.
  • TensorFlow pip packages are now built with CUDA11.2 and cuDNN 8.1.0

Breaking Changes

  • The TF_CPP_MIN_VLOG_LEVEL environment variable has been renamed to to TF_CPP_MAX_VLOG_LEVEL which correctly describes its effect.

Bug Fixes and Other Changes

  • tf.keras:

    • Preprocessing layers API consistency changes:
      • StringLookup added output_modesparse, and pad_to_max_tokens arguments with same semantics as TextVectorization.
      • IntegerLookup added output_modesparse, and pad_to_max_tokens arguments with same semantics as TextVectorization. Renamed max_valuesoov_value and mask_value to max_tokensoov_token and mask_token to align with StringLookup and TextVectorization.
      • TextVectorization default for pad_to_max_tokens switched to False.
      • CategoryEncoding no longer supports adaptIntegerLookup now supports equivalent functionality. max_tokens argument renamed to num_tokens.
      • Discretization added num_bins argument for learning bins boundaries through calling adapt on a dataset. Renamed bins argument to bin_boundaries for specifying bins without adapt.
    • Improvements to model saving/loading:
      • model.load_weights now accepts paths to saved models.
    • Keras inputs can now be created directly from arbitrary tf.TypeSpecs.
    • Two new learning rate schedules added: tf.keras.optimizers.schedules.CosineDecay andtf.keras.optimizers.schedules.CosineDecayRestarts.
  • tf.data:

    • Exposing tf.data.experimental.ExternalStatePolicy, which can be used to control how external state should be handled during dataset serialization or iterator checkpointing.
    • Changing tf.data.experimental.save to store the type specification of the dataset elements. This avoids the need for explicitly specifying the element_spec argument of tf.data.experimental.load when loading the previously saved dataset.
    • Add .element_spec property to tf.data.DatasetSpec to access the inner spec. This can be used to extract the structure of nested
    • datasets.
    • Add tf.data.experimental.AutoShardingPolicy.HINT which can be used to provide hints to tf.distribute-based auto-sharding as to where in the input pipeline to insert sharding transformations.
    • Make tf.data.Options persistent across tf.function and GraphDef boundaries.
  • XLA compilation:

    • tf.function(experimental_compile=True) has become a stable API, renamed tf.function(jit_compile=True).
    • XLA can now compile MirroredStrategy: the step function passed tostrategy.run can now be annoted with jit_compile=True.
  • tf.distribute:

    • Rename experimental_prefetch_to_device in tf.distribute.InputOptions to experimental_fetch_to_device to better reflect the purpose.
  • tf.lite:

    • class tflite::Subgraph:
      • Removed the tensors() method and the non-const overload of the nodes_and_registration() method, both of which were previously documented as temporary and to be removed.
        • Uses of tensors() can be replaced by calling the existing methods tensors_size() and tensor(int).
        • Uses of the non-const overload of nodes_and_registration can be replaced by calling the existing methods nodes_size() and context(), and then calling the GetNodeAndRegistration method in the TfLiteContext returned by context().
    • NNAPI
      • Removed deprecated Interpreter::UseNNAPI(bool) C++ API.
        • Use NnApiDelegate() and related delegate configuration methods directly.
      • Replaced the model cache key for models computation algorithm with one guaranteed to be stable across runs.
  • 16 bits quantization

  • Added int16x8 support for ABS, REDUCE_MAX and REDUCE_MIN operators.

  • Additional tests and fixes for ADD and SUB operators.

  • Added support for saved model’s session initializer through TFLiteConverter.from_saved_model.

  • Added DEPTH_TO_SPACE support in Post training quantization.

  • Added dynamic range quantization support for the BatchMatMul op.

    • Both symmetric and asymmetric quantized input tensor are supported.
  • Add RFFT2D as builtin op. (RFFT2D also supports RFFTD.) Currently only supports float32 input.

  • Add 5D support to SLICE op.

  • TFLite Supports SingatureDef:

    • TFLiteConverter exports models with SignatureDef
    • Interpreter supports getting a list of signatures and getting callable function for a given signaturedef.
  • Add int8 support for ReshapeV2.

  • Add experimental support for optimization with sparsity.

  • Add nominal support for unsigned 32-bit integer tensor types. Note that very few TFLite kernels support this type natively, so its use in mobile ML authoring is generally discouraged.

  • Add support for static hash tables through TFLiteConverter.from_saved_model.

  • The Python TF Lite Interpreter bindings now has an option experimental_preserve_all_tensors to aid in debugging conversion.

  • Quantized x86 execution defaults to Ruy GEMM library for platforms with AVX support.

  • Deprecate tf.compat.v1.lite.experimental.get_potentially_supported_ops. Use tf.lite.TFLiteConverter directly to check whether a model is convertible.

  • Add support to select one of three different built-in op resolvers

  • Enabled post training with calibrations for models that require user provided TensorFlow Lite custom op libraries via converter.target_spec._experimental_custom_op_registerers. used in Python Interpreter API.

  • TF Core:

    • Corrected higher-order gradients of control flow constructs (tf.condtf.while_loop, and compositions like tf.foldl) computed with tf.GradientTape inside a tf.function.
    • Changed the default step size in gradient_checker_v2.compute_gradients to be exactly representable as a binary floating point numbers. This avoids poluting gradient approximations needlessly, which is some cases leads to false negatives in op gradient tests.
    • Added tf.config.experimental.get_memory_info, returning a dict with the current and peak memory usage. Deprecated tf.config.experimental.get_memory_usage in favor of this new function.
    • Extended tf.config.experimental.enable_tensor_float_32_execution to control Tensor-Float-32 evaluation in RNNs.
    • Added a ‘experimental_payloads’ field to tf.errors.OpError and its subclasses to support more detailed error reporting. This is inspired from Abseil Status payloads: https://github.com/abseil/abseil-cpp/blob/master/absl/status/status.h
  • tf.summary:

    • New tf.summary.graph allows manual write of TensorFlow graph (tf.Graph or tf.compat.v1.GraphDef) as a summary. This is not a replacement for the trace-based API.
  • Set /d2ReducedOptimizeHugeFunctions by default for Windows builds. This provides a big compile-time speedup, and effectively raises the minimum supported MSVC version to 16.4 (current: 16.8).

  • TensorRT

    • Removed the deprecated session_config parameter for the TF1-TRT converter TrtGraphConverter. Previously, we issued a warning when the value of the parameter is not None.
    • The TF2-TRT converter TrtGraphConverterV2 takes an object of class TrtConversionParams as a parameter. Removed three deprecated fields from this class: rewriter_config_templateis_dynamic_op, and max_batch_size. Previously, we issued a warning when the value of rewriter_config_template is not None. We issued an error when the value of is_dynamic_op is not True. We didn’t use the value for max_batch_size for building TensorRT engines. Add parameters use_dynamic_shape to enable dynamic shape support. The default is to disable dynamic shape support. Add dynamic_shape_profile_strategy for selecting a dynamic shape profile strategy. The default is profile strategy is Range.
    • Issue a warning when function get_tensorrt_rewriter_config is used.
  • TF XLA

    • Add new enum value MLIR_BRIDGE_ROLLOUT_SAFE_MODE_ENABLED to tf.config.experimental.mlir_bridge_rollout to enable a “safe” mode. This runs the MLIR bridge only when an analysis of the graph only when an analysis of the graph determines that it is safe to run.
    • Add new enum value MLIR_BRIDGE_ROLLOUT_SAFE_MODE_FALLBACK_ENABLED' to tf.config.experimental.mlir_bridge_rollout` to enable a fallback for the MLIR bridge in a “safe” mode. This runs the MLIR bridge in a FallbackEnabled mode when an analysis of the graph determines that the graph does not have unsupported features.
  • Deterministic Op Functionality:

    • Add determinism-unimplemented exception-throwing to the segment-sum ops. When the environment variable TF_DETERMINISTIC_OPS is set to "true" or "1" (when op-determinism is expected), an attempt to run the following ops on a GPU will throw tf.errors.UnimplementedError (with an understandable message) when data is a floating-point type, including complex types (if supported): tf.math.segment_prodtf.math.segment_sumtf.math.unsorted_segment_meantf.math.unsorted_segment_sqrt_ntf.math.unsorted_segment_prodtf.math.unsorted_segment_sum, and therefore also tf.convert_to_tensor when value is of type tf.IndexedSlices (such as in the back prop though tf.gather into a dense embedding). See issue 39751 which this change addresses, but does not solve. This exception-throwing behavior can be disabled by setting the environment variable TF_DISABLE_SEGMENT_REDUCTION_OP_DETERMINISM_EXCEPTIONS to "true" or "1". For more information about these changes, see the description in pull request 47772.
    • In previous versions of TensorFlow, when a GPU was available, tf.sparse.sparse_dense_matmul introduced truly random noise in the forward path for data of type tf.float32 but not for data of type tf.float64 (for which there was no GPU implementation). In this current release, GPU support for other floating-point types (tf.float16tf.float64tf.complex64, and tf.complex128) has been added for this op. If you were relying on the determinism of the tf.float64 CPU implementation being automatically selected because of the absence of the tf.float64 GPU implementation, you with either need to force the op to run on the CPU or use a different data type.

Big Data Visualization: What, Why, Tips and Tools

Wondering what is big data visualization and how you can apply it for your business? Here's a guide to help you get started.

Because we live in a data-driven society, it’s likely that you’re constantly bombarded with complex sets of data that you need to transmit to your coworkers in an easy-to-grasp way.

The challenge is that almost no one wants to look at large lists of numbers and data, and important information can be easily lost within the midst of chaotic spreadsheets. But there is a solution, and that is big data visualization.

Today, we’ll be covering what big data visualization is and why it’s important, different big data visualization techniques you can use, tips and tricks for creating easily intelligible large data sets and the best big data visualization tools you can use.

By the end of this article, you’ll feel like a real data scientist and be competent in creating pie charts, bar charts, heat maps, histograms, interactive charts and more for big data visualization.

So let’s get into it, shall we?

What is Big Data Visualization?

Big data visualization is the representation of large sets of data through visual aids, whether that be through pie charts, heat maps, bar charts or any other kind of chart types or visual representation.

Analyzing and understanding large data sets and data analytics is no easy task and it can be especially difficult trying to relay that same information to colleagues who are not data-driven or data scientists.

That’s where big data visualization comes in. By transforming your large data sets into visually appealing infographics or interactive charts, you can easily convey your data points to fellow decision-makers.

When your data is plotted out on graphs in a visual way and metrics are made easily readable, no data gets lost in the mix, no matter how large or small, and it makes decision-making for the future a breeze.

Because you can’t make adequate decisions or advance significantly without analyzing your raw data, it’s important that companies use great data visualization methods to keep everyone in the loop.

Let’s take BMW for example.

Image Source

In 2020, BMW was able to track the number of sales for electric cars that they had and then compare it to other car companies’ sales, but not only.

They also were able to track the countries that bought the highest amount of their electric cars.

Image Source

This is a prime example of big data visualization in action. When you track your analytics and data, you can see where your wins are and when to celebrate or where your losses are and how you can make adjustments for the future.

Now, imagine for a moment that all this information was just written out plainly on a spreadsheet and had unstructured data all over it.

It would be hard to understand and assess how the company is doing and would take a long time to communicate to employees how their work has affected the sales of the cars.

This is why visualizing big data is so important. With just a glance and within seconds, you can easily see what cars are selling best and in what countries.

No time is wasted going through spreadsheets and trying to make sense of unstructured data — just visual analytics laid out for all to see and understand.

 

Why is Data Visualization Important in Big Data?

We live in a time where the internet and social media have exploded at an extraordinary rate, and information can be gathered within seconds and at the tips of anyone’s fingers.

With the rise of this technological era, it’s important that data can be visualized and consumed quickly and efficiently — especially since the human brain now has an attention span of about 8 seconds, according to this study by the Technical University of Denmark.

Because companies, businesses and organizations can gather data more quickly than ever, this means that they need to be able to visualize that data in an equally quick and easily consumable way.

The best way to efficiently communicate your ever-coming, new data is through visualizing big data. This will bring your complex data to life and anyone who looks at it will be able to understand and grasp it with just a glance.

Edit and Download

Take the image above as an example. With just a quick look at the statistics that are clearly visualized, you can make a data-based assumption.

Now, imagine if this data was just written out plainly on a spreadsheet. It would take much longer to understand and make an assumption based on the numbers.

By using big data visualization techniques, you’ll be able to get the most value from your data and analytics and make sure that everyone who says your data analysis will be able to interpret, understand and use your data. This, in turn, will help your company excel.

When you use data visualization techniques, it will optimize your use of data, help decision making and planning go smoothly, you’ll be able to identify and mitigate risk, extract loads of useful data and insights and improve your overall strategy and direction of your company.

There are no losses to using a visual representation of data, only wins. But there are lots of different types of data visualization that you can use.

Let’s discuss the different types of big data visualization and assess which one will work best for you.

 

What Are the Types of Big Data Visualization?

There are lots of different types of data visualization that data analysts like to use and depending on the amount of data. A data analyst may choose to use a pie chart to express their numerical data or a bar chart.

When looking at big data analytics regarding locations, one might choose to use an interactive heat map or maybe a pivot table.

We’re going to look at 8 common types of big data visualization and some data visualization examples for each to help you decipher which one will work best for you.

 

Type #1: Line Charts

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

A line chart, also known as a line graph, is a graphic representation of data that plots a fixed value on one side and a variable on the other.

A line chart is a fantastic way to represent the relationship of data. You can use a line chart to represent changes and fluctuations of things within a certain period of time.

 

Type #2: Bar Charts

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

A bar chart, also known as a bar graph, uses bars to compare different data points or data sets.

Many data scientists will use bar charts to visually represent their data analysis. You can use a bar chart to compare large amounts of data, fluctuations of quantities or different categories.

The taller the bar, the larger the numerical value and vice versa.

 

Type #3: Pie Charts

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

Pie charts, donut charts, circle graphs or whatever you choose to call them, are representations of data that are split into smaller segments and sizes to represent their numerical value.

When you use a pie chart, it becomes easy to see and compare how the different segments relate and differ from each other.

When using a pie chart, try not to overload it with too many different values. When you split the pie chart into more than 7 segments, it can become difficult to understand the data.

 

Type #4: Heat Maps

Image Source

A heat map is a visual representation of data that is laid out on a map or table and uses different nuances and intensities of colors to represent its data.

Using a heat map can be especially helpful when you need to analyze data that seems to be never-ending. When you have an extremely wide value range, using a heat map makes it much more simple to quickly visualize and analyze large amounts of complex data at a glance.

 

Type #5: Histograms

histogram - weights of newborns

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

A histogram is a graphical and visual representation of complex data sets and the frequency of said numerical data displayed through bars.

Histograms are very similar to bar graphs but vary in the fact that they mostly focus on the repeated frequency of numerical data.

Type #6: Scatter Plots

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

A scatter plot, scatter chart or scatter graph, is a diagram that uses dots to represent and emphasize the different values of two or more numeric variables on an X and Y-axis.

Scatter plots are extremely useful to use when you have multiple large data sets and you want to know how they relate to each other and compare the importance of each value.

 

Type #7: Treemaps

Create your own charts and graphs!

Get Started For Free!

Treemaps are the visual representation of hierarchical data by using color-coded rectangles.

Users can use treemaps as a method to compare multiple sets of data and reflect the weight of each value in a project.

 

Type #8: Funnel Charts

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

Funnel charts are typically used in sales and represent the different stages that your users or customers go through during the sales process and demonstrate decreasing values as they move through your funnel.

By using a funnel chart, you can accurately see where you are losing or gaining your customers during the sales process.

Tip #2: Pick the Correct Form of Big Data Visualization

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

When it comes to visualizing your data, you need to make sure that you choose the correct chart type.

Because there are so many different ways to display your data, you need to weigh out the cons and pros of each and find out which one will work best for your infographic or presentation.

Take for example pie charts and bar graphs.

When you analyze data that is very different, you might want to use a pie chart. But if you want to represent data entries that are close together, you could use a bar chart for that.

If you’re trying to create data visualization for sales, you could use a funnel chart, pyramid chart or cone chart for that.

Each different visualization method has its time and place, and you need to analyze your data and think about what method will work best for your respective data.

Refer above to the “Big Data Visualization Types” section above to see which one will suit you best.

 

Tip #3: Make Sure Your Data is Easily Comprehensible

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

The whole point of big data visualization is to make it easy to understand at a glance.

It won’t be easily intelligible if you just start piling in large amounts of unstructured data and simply hope for the best. Or imagine you have tens of tiny little numbers on a bar graph that no one can see or read.

You need to make sure that anyone on your team, whether a data scientist or not, can understand what you’re trying to convey at a glance.

You can do this by using clear and bold text, contrasting font colors and background colors, not adding too many values to one chart and using compelling images to highlight your point, just like in the example above.

By adding too much text or too many values to a single graph, you risk confusing your audience even more. So keep it as simple and concise as possible.

 

Tip #4: Always Use Legends to Further Explain Your Data

Customize this template and make it your own!

Edit and Download

Using legends is absolutely vital for making your data easy to understand, so whether you’re creating a pie chart or bar graph, make sure you’re using a legend.

A legend is an area of your design that further explains each segment of your chart.

Many times people will assign a color to a segment in their chart, just like in the example above, and on the side add a little graphic element that explains what each color represents.

The legend is responsible for keeping the audience engaged and understanding everything you’re trying to convey.

 

Tip #5: Use Multiple Charts for Big Data

Visualize big data easily with this drag-and-drop tool!

Try It For Free

If you have a large amount of data that needs to be conveyed to your team, try using multiple graphs to do so.

Incorporating tons of data into a single chart will only make it hard for the human brain to stay on track and focus to try and understand what you want to share.

The best rule of thumb to follow here is KISS — keep it simple, stupid.

So instead of simply adding all your data to one pie chart and making it have 30 pie slices, why not create multiple graphs and break it down into bite-sized pieces? Pun intended.

By creating multiple matching charts, you can keep your data easily intelligible, cohesive and right on brand.

Just like in the example above, you can clearly understand all the data that’s being displayed because it is written out on two different donut charts.

You want to make sure your information is understandable by anyone at a glance, and you can do so by breaking down your data.

These releases can be downloaded from Maven Central:

Spring Integration for AWS extension of 2.5.1 has some minor bug fixes after the previous 2.5.0 announcement.

#3 Gohooper

About: 

Go Hooper Web Design was founded in 2006 by John Hooper and his best friend and soul mate Jessica Hooper. John was introduced to programming and development when he was 12 yrs. old (that's when 3.5 inch floppy disks were a big deal). 

Years later when he envisioned having a web agency, it was only a natural progression. At first the business was formed more out of necessity because of the typical run-around that webmaster's give their clients. 

He couldn't stand all the technical jargon and complexity that the average web design company in Miami was creating, leaving clients frustrated and in the dark. So in order to solve this problem he started GoHooper Web Design where the objective was to make everything transparent and understandable from the get go. website design in Miami
