Why I made an open source model zoo

Good job Eric, if I understand well, this can definitely be sort of github for training models!

I’m by no means educated enough about neural networks, deep learning, and anything in that realm but I’ve been worried for a while that the open source environment is loosing its pace lately, still focussed on building only the software, when nowadays a lot of value is in the data instead. The risk being, in my opinion that anything stemming from neural networks will need to be tied to few big providers: Google, Amazon, Microsoft and even Apple (potentially at least) already have the means to collect data and the headstart on building and analyzing it…

I really think the public would benefit from really owning their own neural network powered devices but for that to happen everyone would need to have access to the data.

Like what you read? Give Matteo Scotuzzi a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
