Linux Foundation Launches LF Deep Learning Foundation to Accelerate AI Growth


As this week’s Open Network Summit gets underway, The Linux Foundation has debuted the LF Deep Learning Foundation, an umbrella organization focused on driving open source innovation in artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning. 

The goal of the LF Deep Learning Foundation is to make these new technologies available to developers and data scientists.

Founding members of LF Deep Learning include Amdocs, AT&T, B.Yond, Baidu, Huawei, Nokia, Tech Mahindra, Tencent, Univa, and ZTE. Through the LF Deep Learning Foundation, members are working to create a neutral space where makers and sustainers of tools and infrastructure can interact and harmonize their efforts and accelerate the broad adoption of deep learning technologies.

In tandem with the launch of LF Deep Learning, The Linux Foundation also debuted the Acumos AI Project, a platform that will drive the development, discovery, and sharing of AI models and AI workflows. AT&T and Tech Mahindra contributed the initial code for the Acumos AI Project.
