The future is looking better and better for robot butlers and virtual personal assistants. Automatic speech recognition just got a little better as the popular open source speech recognition toolkit Kaldi now offers integration with TensorFlow.
What sets up an open source project for success? Is it a dedicated community? Star power? A clever name and an even cleverer concept? It turns out that behind almost every great open source project is the support of a great organization or enterprise.
Open source makes the world go round, from Google, Facebook and Twitter to Android smartphones and Linux in self-driving cars. The Linux Foundation’s 2017 Open Source Jobs Report confirms that the hiring market for developers with open source skills is hot, hot, hot. Are you ready?
We’ve been so focused on the benefits blockchain has on the finance sector that we’ve forgotten about the legal industry. Enter the Accord Project, the world’s first consortium for smart legal contracts. It’s worth your attention because it seems to be the place where legal and tech come together. We invited Peter Hunn and Houman Shadab, founders of Clause.io to tell us more about the Accord Project and the aim of this initiative.
These days, it seems that tech companies can’t hire their AI or ML specialists fast enough. So if you’re looking to upgrade your skillset or just fiddle around with a cool new tool, we’ve got you covered with our top 5 picks for the best open-source tools for machine learning.
Open Container Initiative 1.0 is here! We’ve waited two years for this version but it was worth the wait. Although there is still work to be done —a formal certification program will be launched later this year— let’s take a moment to look at OCI 1.0.

In this article, Yaron Haviv explains why the open source community needs to work towards collaboration and standardization for the good of us all.
College classes are expensive. We like free things. Whether you’re interested in reviewing the basics of computer science or studying machine learning or artificial intelligence, there’s an embarrassment of riches available for free online.
If you’re looking for a new gateway framework, look no further. IBM has now made their lightweight, infinitely extensible API Microgateway open source.
Open source was originally meant to help us break free from the shackles of proprietary software. But coding and maintaining an open source project is basically a full-time job. Volunteering time and experience means the community thrives, but who benefits from all this unpaid labor? And how do we foot the bill for all of these servers, anyways?
It’s a wonderful time to be a space nerd. NASA has dropped their 2017 software catalog because everyone needs code for an autonomous swarm of robots.
“Open source is complicated, especially for newcomers,” GitHub said in its roadmap for Open Source Guides. Open Source Guides is a collection of resources for individuals, communities, and companies who want to learn how to run and contribute to open source.
As many startups of the last decade, SoundCloud’s architecture started as a Ruby on Rails monolith, which later had to be broken into microservices to cope with the growing size and complexity of the site. The microservices initially ran on an in-house container management and deployment platform. Recently, the company has started to migrate to Kubernetes. In their talk at the DevOpsCon, Fabian Reinartz and Björn Rabenstein demonstrated the current Prometheus setup at SoundCloud, monitoring a large-scale Kubernetes cluster.
