Ktor, the web framework for Kotlin, announces new update
Ktor 1.3 was released with improved integration with the kotlinx.serialization library, and support for CIO (a co-routines-based I/O search engine) on Kotlin/Native to make a default multiplatorm engine used in HttpClient. 

An incompatible change was introduced in Ktor 1.3 in which HttpResponse no longer implements the Closeable interface. The HttpClient adds experimental support for proxy. If you need to send requests under proxy, you can configure its address in the corresponding parameters:

Also, there is no binary compatibility with 1.2.x, so if you use any external Ktor features you’ll need to recompile them against the latest version. 

The full details on the new release are available here.

IBM’s Cloud Annotations project gets a new automated labeling tool for data labeling
IBM’s Cloud Annotations project gets a new automated labeling tool that takes advantage of AI to assist the labeling process and to cut down the time that developers have to manually draw. 

Backed by IBM Cloud Object Storage, Cloud Annotations enables users to store as much data as they need, access the data from anywhere and share across multiple collaborators in real-time.

“Currently, it takes 200-500 samples of hand-labeled images for a model to detect one specific object,” IBM wrote in a post. “Autolabeling images speeds the process and gives developers back valuable time to work on other innovative projects.”
