Yesterday’s discussion covered two topics: (a) sparse tensor support in TFF - currently possible, but in need of better APIs and components for aggregation (we’d welcome contributions here), and (b) a review of a proposal to develop a transport layer for TFF runtime to support communication between silos and a centralized orchestrator in scenarios where silos can’t have ingress points (and must be the ones to initiate the point-to-point connections with the orchestrator). The review will continue in the next meeting scheduled @2pm on September 8. Meeting notes from yesterday are posted on GitHub . More interactive discussions to follow on the Discord server . Thanks everyone!
