Open Source Innovation in Artificial Intelligence and Data

Our Mission

The mission of LF AI & Data is to build and support an open artificial intelligence (AI) and data community, and drive open source innovation in the AI and data domains by enabling collaboration and the creation of new opportunities for all the members of the community.



The LF AI & Data Foundation supports and sustains open source projects within artificial intelligence (AI) and the data space. You can think of us as a greenhouse growing and sustaining open source AI and data projects from seed to fruition. We provide support to projects for open development among a diverse and thriving community, in addition to a number of enabling services that include membership and funding management, ecosystem development, legal support, PR/marketing/communication, events support, trademark management, export control filings, and compliance scans.

Explore our current projects and contact us to discuss hosting your open-source AI or data project with our Foundation.
