By August 5, 2021No Comments

Acumos, an LF AI Foundation Graduated Project, has announced their software release, codenamed Elpis. We’re thrilled to see another great release from the community! 

Acumos is a platform and open source framework that makes it easy to build, share, and deploy AI apps. Acumos standardizes the infrastructure stack and components required to run an out-of-the-box general AI environment.
