  4. TensorFlow PrivacyLibrary for training machine learning models with privacy for training data.
  5. Universally Unique Lexicographically Sortable Identifiers128-bit compatibility with UUID; 1.21e+24 unique ULIDs per millisecond; Lexicographically sortable!; Canonically encoded as a 26 character string, as opposed to the 36 character UUID; Uses Crockford’s base32 for better efficiency and readability (5 bits per character); Case insensitive; No special characters (URL safe); Monotonic sort order (correctly detects and handles the same millisecond).
