IBM states on the official blog--
We are excited to announce one of the first initiatives in this space — an open source enterprise Model Asset eXchange, or “MAX”. MAX is a models app store that aims to ignite a community of data scientists and AI developers, enabling them to easily discover, rate, and deploy machine learning models. MAX is a one-stop exchange for data scientists and AI developers to consume models created using their favorite machine learning engines, like TensorFlow, PyTorch, and Caffe2, and provides a standardized approach to classify, annotate, and deploy these models for prediction and inferencing, including an increasing number of models that can be deployed and customized in IBM’s recently announce AI application development platform, Watson Studio.
This message is very much echoed by Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation. “IBM’s release of Model Asset eXchange gives developers a new source for deep learning models. We look forward to seeing the innovation unlocked from the MAX community through collaboration with our forthcoming Acumos AI community.”
