A proposal has been made to establish the AICE Working Group.
The proposed charter  indicates the Eclipse AI, Cloud & Edge (AICE) Working Group will manage and operate an open lab (the “AICE OpenLab”) that will provide a set of resources to promote the advancement, implementation and verification of open source software for AI, Cloud and Edge computing.
The AICE Working Group and the associated AICE OpenLab will do this by:
Fostering open and neutral collaboration amongst members for the adoption of open source technologies
Defining, publishing and promoting reference architectures, blueprints and distributions of open source software that have been verified for industry AI, Cloud, and Edge standards, requirements, and use cases
Developing and providing open source verification test suites, test tools, calibrated datasets and hosted test infrastructure for industry AI, Cloud, and Edge standards, requirements and use cases
Ensuring that key requirements regarding privacy, security and ethics are integrated into all the OpenLab activities
Partnering with industry organizations to assemble and verify open source software for their standards, requirements, and use cases
Promoting the AICE OpenLab in the marketplace and engaging with the larger open source community
Managing and funding the lab infrastructure resources to support this work
The proposed charter for this working group is now available for review. If you have any comments or feedback, please send them to the working group mailing list .
All Members of the Eclipse Foundation are invited to join and participate in this working group. If you are interested, please send them to the working mailing list . Based on the feedback and level of interest, the working group will be officially created early next month.
