Powered by AI: Oculus Insight

To unlock the full potential of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences, the technology needs to work anywhere, adapting to the spaces where people live and how they move within those real-world environments. When we developed Oculus Quest, the first all-in-one, completely wire-free VR gaming system, we knew we needed positional tracking that […]

Understanding Envoy Proxy and Ambassador HTTP Access Logs

Ambassador uses Envoy Proxy as its core L7 routing engine. Envoy Proxy provides a configurable access logging mechanism. Ambassador uses the default format string for Envoy’s access logs. These access logs provide an extensive amount of information that can be used to troubleshoot issues. These provide additional details about the response or connection if any […]

Presto Infrastructure at Lyft

Early in 2017 we started exploring Presto for OLAP use cases and we realized the potential of this amazing query engine. It started as an adhoc querying tool for data engineers and analysts to run SQL in a faster way to prototype their queries, when compared to Apache Hive. A lot of internal dashboards were […]

Deep probabilistic modelling with Pyro

Classical machine learning and deep learning algorithms can only propose the most probable solutions and are not able to adequately model uncertainty. The success of deep neural networks in diverse areas as image recognition and natural language processing has been outstanding in recent years. However, classical machine learning and deep learning algorithms can only propose […]

Speak to me: How voice commerce is revolutionizing commerce

We’ve seen profound advances in technology, especially with the development of artificial intelligence and deep learning which are increasingly for voice assistants. This, in turn, promises to bring about huge changes in consumer behavior — what’s being called “voice commerce”. This is a new channel, governed by a new set of rules. Here, communication is […]

Announcing Maesh, a Lightweight and Simpler Service Mesh Made by the Traefik Team

We are proud to introduce Maesh, Containous’ new service mesh designed from the ground up to be straightforward, easy to install and easy to use. Maesh allows for visibility and management of the traffic that flows inside your Kubernetes cluster, which is just as important as the ingress and egress traffic. Built on top of […]

Zoncolan: How Facebook uses static analysis to detect and prevent security issues

Zoncolan helps security engineers scale their work by using static analysis to examine code and detect security or privacy issues. Facebook’s web codebase currently contains more than 100 million lines of Hack code, and changes thousands of times per day. To handle the sheer volume of code, we build sophisticated systems that help our security […]

New advances in natural language processing

Natural language understanding (NLU) and language translation are key to a range of important applications, including identifying and removing harmful content at scale and connecting people across different languages worldwide. Although deep learning–based methods have accelerated progress in language processing in recent years, current systems are still limited when it comes to tasks for which […]

OPA Gatekeeper: Policy and Governance for Kubernetes

The Open Policy Agent Gatekeeper project can be leveraged to help enforce policies and strengthen governance in your Kubernetes environment. In this post, we will walk through the goals, history, and current state of the project. The following recordings from the Kubecon EU 2019 sessions are a great starting place in working with Gatekeeper: If […]
