What is FastText and what are its top alternatives?

It is an open-source, free, lightweight library that allows users to learn text representations and text classifiers. It works on standard, generic hardware. Models can later be reduced in size to even fit on mobile devices.
FastText is a tool in the NLP / Sentiment Analysis category of a tech stack.

Why we built an open source, distributed training framework for TensorFlow , Keras , and PyTorch:

At Uber, we apply deep learning across our business; from self-driving research to trip forecasting and fraud prevention, deep learning enables our engineers and data scientists to create better experiences for our users.

TensorFlow has become a preferred deep learning library at Uber for a variety of reasons. To start, the framework is one of the most widely used open source frameworks for deep learning, which makes it easy to onboard new users. It also combines high performance with an ability to tinker with low-level model details鈥攆or instance, we can use both high-level APIs, such as Keras, and implement our own custom operators using NVIDIA鈥檚 CUDA toolkit.

Uber has introduced Michelangelo (https://eng.uber.com/michelangelo/), an internal ML-as-a-service platform that democratizes machine learning and makes it easy to build and deploy these systems at scale. In this article, we pull back the curtain on Horovod, an open source component of Michelangelo鈥檚 deep learning toolkit which makes it easier to start鈥攁nd speed up鈥攄istributed deep learning projects with TensorFlow:

In mid-2015, Uber began exploring ways to scale ML across the organization, avoiding ML anti-patterns while standardizing workflows and tools. This effort led to Michelangelo.

Michelangelo consists of a mix of open source systems and components built in-house. The primary open sourced components used are HDFS, Spark, Samza, Cassandra, MLLib, XGBoost, and TensorFlow.
