OSGi Community Event 2018 Presentation by Tim Verbelen (imec)
Abstract: Nowadays AI is reaching new heights on the hype cycle, especially due to recent advances in deep learning techniques. A lot of deep learning frameworks exist for creating and training deep neural networks, the most popular ones being PyTorch and TensorFlow. However, how to integrate, deploy and manage these neural networks in complex software systems is often overlooked. In this talk we show how OSGi can be used as a modular runtime for deep learning models. We embed those models inside OSGi bundles, and use the extender pattern to make these available as OSGi services. You can then use your favorite OSGi specs such as DS and PushStreams to integrate these into your application.
