  • We changed our backend to combine different selection strategies. The new approach should try to cover better for the various objectives.

Performance improvements

  • Loading active learning scores has been accelerated by optimising the multiprocessing usage.
  • We tweaked our backend to handle more requests and scale better during higher workloads. This results in some faster response time in the UI and also the Lightly Worker might slightly run faster.

Bug fixes

  • There was a bug in the API that prevented the loading from existing checkpoints when specified in the worker_config. This has been fixed in the API and will resolve the issue also for older versions of the Lightly Worker.
