MariaDB Fixes Business Source License, Releases MaxScale 2.1

Creator of The Open Source Definition and longtime Slashdot reader Bruce Perens writes: MariaDB is releasing MaxScale 2.1, a new version of their database routing proxy, and has modified its timed-transition-to-Open-Source “Business Source License” to make it more acceptable to the Open Source community and more easily usable by other companies. I’ve blogged the issues I had with the license and how MariaDB has fixed them, and Kaj Arno has blogged the MariaDB side of the story. Here’s an excerpt from Perens’ blog post: “The BSL is a parameterized license. The licensor chooses the license which is transitioned to, the date of the transition, and the limitation. The problem with this is that it was so parameterized that if you told someone the license was ‘BSL 1.0,’ they would not have any idea what license they really had. It might transition to any of 100 Open Source licenses, or to

Google Releases TensorFlow 1.0 With New Machine Learning Tools

An anonymous reader shares a VentureBeat report: At Google’s inaugural TensorFlow Dev Summit in Mountain View, California, today, Google announced the release of version 1.0 of its TensorFlow open source framework for deep learning, a trendy type of artificial intelligence. Google says the release is now production-ready by way of its application programing interface (API). But there are also new tools that will be part of the framework, which includes artificial neural networks that can be trained on data and can then make inferences about new data. Now there are more traditional machine learning tools, including K-means and support vector machines (SVMs), TensorFlow’s engineering director, Rajat Monga, said at the conference. And there’s an integration with the Python-based Keras library, which was originally meant to ease the use of the Theano deep learning framework. And there are now “canned estimators,” or models, Monga said, including simple neural networks to start

YouTube says it now has automatically captioned 1 billion videos
