ML and AI Tools and Frameworks for Developers

Machine Learning and AI tools and framework

Artificial intelligence is a complex area including specialized mathematical algorithms, computing machines, software programs and many more. Artificial intelligence solutions are implemented in almost all areas of social activities in business research and other fields. The importance of an artificial intelligence developer has therefore become so crucial in today’s modern era[1]. If you want to know about Artificial intelligence in web development make sure to check our article “AI & Web development?”.

The number of tools and frameworks available to data scientists and developers has increased as machine learning becomes more prominent. Microsoft, IBM, Google, and AWS have machine learning APIs that they respective cloud platforms. It makes easier for developers to build services by summarizing some of their machine learning algorithms’ complexities. Let’s discuss how artificial intelligence software can be properly developed and how best to find and hire AI engineers.[2]

As follows, we introduce top machine learning tools[3].

1.Google ML Kit

Google ML KIT

ML Kit is a mobile SDK that offers a powerful package to Google’s machine learning expertise. Even developers new to machine learning are easy to use for Android and iOS applications. With a few lines of code, you can implement the functionality you need.

To get started with the ML Kit, comprehensive knowledge of neural networks or models is not necessary. It provides APIs. ML Kit can help you to your custom Tensor-flow[4] Lite models in mobile applications.

You can use machine learning techniques in your apps with the aim of the ML Kit. The Google Cloud Vision API[5], TensorFlow Lite[6], and the Android Neural Networks API[7] is Google ML technologies that can be combined in one SDK. The functionality is available on the device or in the cloud are as follows.

2. OpenNN

openn neural networks

OpenNN is Abbreviation of Open Neural Networks Library. It is a software library which is written by C + + programming language. It implements a major area of research into deep learning (as a subfield of machine learning)which is known as neural networks.

OpenNN implements data mining methods and provides a set of functions. These can be integrated into other software tools. There is no graphical user interface, some functions can be integrated with Specific visualization tools.[8]

OpenNN’s main advantage is high performance. To higher processing speed and better memory management, it is developed in C + + and implements parallel CPU with CUDA via OpenMP and GPU to accelerate processing.

A wide range of materials including tutorials on the site[9]. A Neural Designer tool is available for advanced analytics. This tool helps you simplify data entries by creating visual content like graphs and tables.

Here you can download OpenNN [10].

3. Apache Mahout

Apache Mahout

As the definition of Apache Mahout(TM) says, “It is a distributed linear algebra framework and mathematically expressive Scala DSL designed to let mathematicians, statisticians, and data scientists quickly implement their own algorithms”. [11]

  • Mathematically Expressive Scala DSL
  • Support for Multiple Distributed Backends (including Apache Spark)
  • Modular Native Solvers for CPU/GPU/CUDA Acceleration

This was the exclusive field of academics and companies with large budgets for research. In today’s, the need for intelligent application is growing. Intelligent applications can learn from data.

Apache Mahout is used to creating applications using machine learning techniques including collaborative,

categorization and clustering. It is filtering to find commons in large groups of data or to tag large web content volumes.

Mahout scalability[12]:

  • Scalable for large sets of data – The core of machine learning algorithms is Implementation of large distributed and scalable systems.
  • Scaled to support all of the business cases – it is distributed within the commercially friendly license of Apache Software.
  • Scalable community – A wide community with dynamic, diverse and responsive features which facilitates discussions on the project and its possible use.

Many of the implementations rely on the Apache Hadoop[13] platform, so how it works should be well understood.

4. HPE Haven On-demand

HPE Haven OnDemand

HPE [15] is a platform for cloud services that simplify how data can be interacted and turn it into an asset at any time. They offers a large collection of applications programming interfaces (APIs) for machine learning to interact in a different way with structured and unstructured data. Some of these APIs can be employed in cognitive computing and data science. Depending on the definitions and objectives of the problem, there are a number of ways to address problems in these realms.[16]

The APIs offered at the launch should be familiar to those who worked on Bluemix or the Microsoft Azure Marketplace with IBM Watson. Most of them provide common business functions, like enterprise search or converting file formats, and even needle – moving apps for machine learning are relatively familiar.[17]

5. Accord.NET


This Framework is a .NET framework that implements machine learning .NET written in C#. image and audio processing libraries are completely combined with frameworks. This framework is a complete framework to build a degree of production in computer audition, statistics applications, computer vision and signal processing for all-purpose even commercial purpose.[18]  The project’s source code is available in the Gnu Lesser Public License (version 2.1)[19].

The framework includes the source code of libraries and NuGet[20] packages and executable installers. The covered areas are image and signal processing, numerical linear algebra, statistics, numerical optimization, machine learning and supporting libraries (like as visualization and graph plotting).[21]

This project was created for the extension of AForge.NET Framework[22] capabilities. AForge.NET has been incorporated into itself. The latest version of it joined the two frameworks which are called the Accord.NET.[23]

A set of instance applications allows you to quickly get up and running and a documentation and wiki help to fill in the details.

The purpose of this article is to give an overview of the trending machine learning and frameworks tools. A treasure trove of resources for developers who just started their careers and experts will be found through the list above. Although some depend on a particular programming language, others can be used in a variety of instances, including in the cloud. Both software and cloud-based offerings enable developers to benefit from each other’s benefits[31].

Before building a machine learning application, it can be a difficult task to select one technology from the many options. Therefore, before making a final decision, it is important to evaluate several options[32]. To help you select the machine learning framework that best suits your workflow consults an artificial intelligence engineer[33].

We are witnessing some common themes surfacing as these tools now develop. Flexibility in these software functions often costs performance or scalability or both. If a toolset is tightly linked to a language or deployment format, it is typically more difficult to reshape it bigger, wider, faster or fatter[34]. Over time, platforms or wider community – driven migration to the most efficient, powerful, open, smartest and most “trainable” tools are likely to be consolidated[35].
