Libre is a (proposed) open/free collaborative teams based AI research group. There are very many people who want to become experts in Deep Learning/Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence and there exists lots of good online resources. What's missing is an organisation where you can learn from your peers and that's what Libre intends to fill.
In order that we work well together we do ask for commitment:
We work in teams:
We are no fan of the religious nature of Agile/Scrum, but we need a common framework so that everyone can work together. We really mean that people will be working in self contained teams with known sprint goals.
We recognise that different people will have different goals. Some people may be very academic and have as their main goal lots of publications. Some people may want to commercially exploit the results, perhaps by forming a start up. We want to support everyone, CC BY-NC was chosen to both ensure that code was available for academic use whilst allowing the key parties to relicence under other terms so not impeeding startup growth.
