  • Chameleon Changelog for May 2024

    by Mark Powers

    This month we’ve again been focusing on improvements to the Chameleon backend, but we still are excited to show our CHI@Edge peripheral guide and new CHI-in-a-box features. We also are preparing for an OpenStack upgrade on July 1st.

  • Optimizing Production ML Inference for Accuracy and Cost Efficiency

    Pushing the Boundaries of Cost-Effective ML Inference on Chameleon Testbed
    by Saeid Ghafouri

    In this blog post, we explore groundbreaking research on optimizing production ML inference systems to achieve high accuracy while minimizing costs. A collaboration between researchers from multiple institutions has resulted in the development of three adaptive systems - InfAdapter, IPA, and Sponge - that tackle the accuracy-cost trade-off in complex, real-world ML scenarios. Learn how these solutions, implemented on the Chameleon testbed, are pushing the boundaries of cost-effective ML inference and enabling more accessible and scalable ML deployment.

  • Seamless SSH Container Access with CHI@Edge

    Simplifying Your Development Process
    by Soufiane Jounaid

    Recognizing the need for easier modification of running containers, we’ve introduced a straightforward method for SSHing into CHI@Edge containers, enhancing your development and experimentation processes. Our new tutorial on Trovi helps you create an SSH-ready base container, extending the CHI@Edge “hello world” example to enable remote access. This allows you to troubleshoot, configure, and update containers as if they were real servers. Access the tutorial via the CHI@Edge dashboard, and start developing with enhanced flexibility and ease.

  • Summer with Chameleon Returns - June 11th & 13th (Virtual)

    A series of introductory tutorials on Chameleon
    by Marc Richardson

    Many folks in our community (now over 10,000 strong!) use our testbed for projects with student interns, REU sites, and summer courses. In Summer 2022, we started a series of introductory tutorials to help students quickly learn the ropes and hit the ground running on their summer projects. While Chameleon has extensive documentation, webinars, and blogs demonstrating our features and latest updates, these tutorials add extra structure, interaction, and context for those eager to harness the power of Chameleon.

  • SAVE THE DATE: November 18, 2024 - Reproducibility Workshop in Atlanta, GA
