The Linux Foundation, along with founding organizations AT&T and Tech Mahindra, has started working on the Acumos Project. The Acumos Project aims to make artificial intelligence (AI) available to everyone by providing a common framework and platform for the free exchange of machine learning solutions, said the organization in a statement. The project is expected to launch early next year.

The Acumos platform will be user-centric, with an initial focus on creating apps and microservices, says the foundation. The project is expected to create an industry standard for making AI applications and models reusable and easily accessible to any developer.

The Linux Foundation will host the platform and its AI marketplace. Code will be available near the time of the project’s launch in early 2018.
