Subject February 2016 SystemML Incubator Podling Report - Draft
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 02:08:36 GMT

The SystemML podling report for February is due tomorrow. Please let me
know if any additions or changes need to be made to the following draft.




SystemML provides declarative large-scale machine learning (ML) that aims at
flexible specification of ML algorithms and automatic generation of hybrid
runtime plans ranging from single node, in-memory computations, to
distributed computations running on Apache Hadoop MapReduce and Apache

SystemML has been incubating since 2015-11-02.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Grow SystemML community: increase mailing list activity,
     increase adoption of SystemML for scalable machine learning, encourage
     data scientists to adopt DML and PyDML algorithm scripts, respond to
     user feedback to ensure SystemML meets the requirements of real-world
     situations, write papers, and present talks about SystemML.
  2. Core library improvements, including Apache Spark integration.
  3. Produce a release.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  Our JIRA site is up and operational.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  Our mailing list in January had 123 messages (7 of which were Jenkins). We
  have had several useful discussions on the mailing list concerning various
  aspects of SystemML. A data scientist has created JIRAs regarding
  issues and we are addressing these issues. We have had several useful
  additional discussions on our JIRA site and in our Pull Request

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Numerous additions have been made to the project, including core
  functionality, usability improvements, and documentation. The project has
  96 commits since January 6. In the last 30 days, 126 new issues have been
  reported on our JIRA site and 68 issues have been resolved. We are in the
  process of producing our first Apache release, version 0.9.0.
  RC3 passed the SystemML PMC vote and is currently being voted on by the

Date of last release:
