Why Neptune is the Best Alternative to Guild AI

ZERO MAINTENANCE

Is it easy to set up and maintain a Guild AI server and visualization dashboard for your entire team?

With Neptune you get all your experiment data saved and backed-up on a hosted server or on-prem installation. You can manage user permissions and share experiments in the beautiful UI with no additional overhead. Powerful, simple, and available for you and your team in minutes.

USER MANAGEMENT

Can you manage user permissions in Guild AI?

Neptune lets you manage users easily. You can give people access to projects and organizations. Additionally, Neptune gives you control over the user role: admin, contributor or viewer.

Get started
DASHBOARD VIEWS

Can you save different experiment dashboard views in Guild AI?

When you have multiple users working on many ideas the things you want to look at change and so should your experiment dashboard.
Neptune lets you customize, change, and save experiment dashboard views depending on your needs.

Get started
IMAGES DISPLAY

Can you scroll through your images and charts?

Neptune lets you log images and charts to multiple image channels and scroll through them to quickly see the progress of your model training. Get a full picture of what is happening in your training and validation loops by leveraging more information!

NOTEBOOK AUTOSNAPSHOTS

Does Guild AI snapshot your Jupyter notebooks automatically?

Neptune notebook integration automatically snapshots your .ipynb whenever you run a cell with neptune.create_experiment() in it. Whether you remember to submit your experiment or not everything will be safely versioned and ready to be explored.

ANALYZE EXPERIMENT DASHBOARD IN JUPYTER NOTEBOOK

Does Guild AI let you fetch your experiment dashboard directly to a pandas DataFrame?

With Neptune you can fetch whatever information you or your teammates tracked and explore it however you like. We have some nice exploratory features, like HiPlot integration to help you with that.

neptune.init('USERNAME/example-project')

make_parallel_coordinates_plot(

     metrics= ['eval_accuracy', 'eval_loss',...],

     params = ['activation', 'batch_size',...])

NOTEBOOK VERSIONING AND DIFFING

Does Guild AI let you track your exploratory analysis?

Neptune goes beyond the tracking of machine learning experiments and allows you to version your exploratory data analysis or results exploration as well!
Once it is saved in Neptune you can name, share, download or see diffs of your notebook checkpoints.
