[ANN] New project for exploring large, multimedia datasets

Fellow jovyans! Just a quick note to let you know about an open source project that we’ve been working on and just released: Kangas DataGrid. It is designed to help you explore large datasets that include multimedia (currently, just images, but we’re planning video, audio, and more).

It was really easy to integrate Kangas with Jupyter Notebooks (but took a good amount of work to integrate with Google Colab). We have some example scripts and notebooks here:

There is some interesting technology in here that I’ll be posting about soon, including working with Next.js and a new query language that we built (Python syntax, but is interpreted partly in SQL, and partly in Python).

Hope you find it useful! And feel free to make requests and ask questions at the repo!
