LF Deep Learning Foundation Announces Project Contribution Process

deep learning

The LF Deep Learning Foundation is now accepting proposals for the contribution of projects.

I am very pleased to announce that the LF Deep Learning Foundation has approved a project lifecycle and contribution process to enable the contribution, support and growth of artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning open source projects. With these documents in place, the LF Deep Learning Foundation is now accepting proposals for the contribution of projects.

The LF Deep Learning Foundation, a community umbrella project of The Linux Foundation with the mission of supporting artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning open source projects, is working to build a self-sustaining ecosystem of projects.  Having a clear roadmap for how to contribute projects is a first step. Contributed projects operate under their own technical governance with collaboration resources allocated and provided by the LF Deep Learning Foundation’s Governing Board. Membership in the LF Deep Learning Foundation is not required to propose a project contribution.

The project lifecycle and contribution process documents can be found here: https://lists.deeplearningfoundation.org/g/tac-general/wiki/Lifecycle-Document-and-Project-Proposal-Process. Note that sign-up to the general LF Deep Learning Foundation mailing list is required to access these materials.

If you are interested in contributing a project, please review the steps and requirements described in the above materials. We are very excited to see what kinds of innovative, forward-thinking projects the community creates.

If you have any questions on how to contribute a project or the types of support LF Deep Learning Foundation is providing to its projects, please reach out to me at snicholas@linuxfoundation.org.
