The Eclipse AI, Cloud & Edge (AICE) Working Group is where the AI, Cloud & Edge ecosystems meet to innovate and grow with open source.

The aim of the AICE Working Group is to accelerate the adoption of AI, Cloud & Edge technologies and standards, through the provision and operation of a collaborative work and test environment for its participants, the engagement with research and innovation initiatives and through the promotion of open source projects to AI, Cloud & Edge developers.

Vision and scope

The Eclipse AI, Cloud & Edge (AICE) Working Group manages and operates an open lab (the “AICE OpenLab”) that provides a set of resources to promote the advancement, implementation, and verification of open source software for AI, Cloud, and Edge computing.

The AICE WG and the associated AICE OpenLab does this by:

  • Fostering open and neutral collaboration amongst members for the adoption of open source technologies
  • Defining, publishing and promoting reference architectures, blueprints and distributions of open source software that have been verified for industry AI, Cloud, and Edge standards, requirements, and use cases
  • Developing and providing open source verification test suites, test tools, calibrated datasets and hosted test infrastructure for industry AI, Cloud, and Edge standards, requirements and use cases
  • Ensuring that key requirements regarding privacy, security and ethics are integrated into all the OpenLab activities
  • Partnering with industry organizations to assemble and verify open source software for their standards, requirements, and use cases
  • Promoting the AICE OpenLab in the marketplace and engaging with the larger open source community
  • Managing and funding the lab infrastructure resources to support this work

For more information, see the Working Group official charter.

Program & Projects

We are currently in the process of drafting the program for the future Working Group.

The AICE OpenLab

Status: Running, see the dedicated page for more details.

The AICE OpenLab is a platform where partners can discuss and share AI-related resources, experiences and benchmarks.

It relies on AI4EU Experiments to provide a marketplace and visual editor to execute complex AI workflows, and also provides a Kubernetes cluster for the execution, demonstration and benchmarking of workflows.

The first project to use the OpenLab platform is the AURA use case.

The AURA Healthcare use case

Status: Running, see the dedicated page for more details.

Work with the AURA healthcare association on an ML workflow that detects epileptic seizures before they happen, based on ECGs.

  • Work with the team on the portability and industrialisation of the prototype.
  • Bring the AURA ML workflow to the AICE OpenLab marketplace to foster exchange and collaboration on their solution.
  • Provide a k8s cluster to execute resource-intensive tasks and demonstrate the workflow.
