LF AI & Data Day ONNX Community Virtual Meetup – March 2021

By February 4, 2021No Comments

The LF AI & Data Foundation is pleased to sponsor the upcoming LF AI & Data Day* – ONNX Community Virtual Meetup – March 2021, to be held via Zoom on March 24, 2021.

ONNX, an LF AI & Data Foundation Graduated Project, is an open format to represent deep learning models. With ONNX, AI developers can more easily move models between state-of-the-art tools and choose the combination that is best for them. 

The virtual meetup will cover ONNX Community updates, partner/end-user stories, and SIG/WG updates. Thanks to Baidu and Ti Zhou who volunteered to be the host for the workshop. If you are using ONNX in your services and applications, building software or hardware that supports ONNX, or contributing to ONNX, you should attend! This is a great opportunity to connect with and hear from people working with ONNX across many companies. 

Registration is now open and the event is free to attend. Capacity will be 500 attendees. Please see the event schedule below and also visit the event website for up to date information on this virtual meetup.
