Open Source AI: Projects, Insights, and Trends

Open Source AI: Projects, Insights, and Trends

The Linux Foundation surveyed 16 popular open source AI projects – looking in depth at their histories, codebases, and GitHub contributions. Our conclusion? Building the right community around your open source AI project is critical to its success. Here’s why:

  • Incubators work. We identify several examples of projects that have benefited dramatically from joining an incubator.
  • Community governance matters. Open source projects with more diverse contributor patterns last longer and are more likely to survive when a major contributor changes strategy.
  • Consolidation is happening. We discuss several examples of projects that have halted, or may halt, development as contributors flock to other competing projects.
