Aim 2.3.0 is out! Thanks to the community for feedback and support on our journey towards democratizing AI dev tools.

Check out the updated Aim at play.aimstack.io.

Below are the highlight features of the update. Find the full list of changes here.

Of course you can also query all those new metrics in the Explore page and compare, group, aggregate with the rest of the metrics!

Use the toggle to switch between grouping modes.

Line Chart Smoothing

Now you can apply smoothing on metrics. Here is how it works:

There are two type of smoothing options available: Exponential Moving Average and Central Moving Average. More on how it’s calculated.

We have added two more aggregation modes: standard error and standard deviation . Here is how it works:
