Hi Deron,

Thanks for writing the draft. I also presented SystemML at Rice University.
Can you please add it to the report ?

Subject:	Draft - May 2016 SystemML Incubator Podling Report



Hi,


I created a draft for the May 2016 SystemML podling report that is due this
Wednesday. Please provide feedback if you'd like anything updated. For PMC
members, if the issue is private related to the project, please use the
private mailing list for discussion.

Thanks!

Deron

SystemML


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

Spark.


SystemML has been incubating since 2015-11-02.


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


  - 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.

  - Continue to produce releases.

  - Increase the diversity of our project's contributors and committers.


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

aware of?


  NONE.


How has the community developed since the last report?


  Our mailing list from February through April had 199 messages involving

  topics such as algorithms, DML functionality, usability, and bug fixes.
In

  addition, we have had many discussions on our JIRA site and in pull
request

  conversations. Fred Reiss presented at Spark Summit East on February 17
about

  SystemML internals. Berthold Reinwald spoke at the Spark Technology
Center on

  March 9 about scalable machine learning with SystemML. Niketan Pansare
spoke

  on April 28 at Datapalooza in Austin about declarative machine learning
at

  scale with SystemML. Researchers in Germany are working to add Flink as
an

  additional SystemML backend. On GitHub, the project has been starred 267

  times and forked 92 times.


How has the project developed since the last report?


  We produced our first Apache release, version 0.9.0-incubating. Numerous

  additions have been made to the project, including core functionality,

  usability improvements, and documentation. The project has had 204
commits

  since February 1. In the same time frame, 155 new issues have been
reported

  on our JIRA site and 77 issues have been resolved. 114 pull requests
opened

  since Febrary 1 have been closed.


Date of last release:


  2016-02-15 (version 0.9.0-incubating)


When were the last committers or PMC members elected?


  NONE
