We believe in the power of choice for Machine Learning development, and continue to invest resources to make it easy for ML practitioners to train, deploy, and orchestrate models from a single unified data and AI cloud platform. We’re excited to announce our role as a founding member of the newly formed PyTorch Foundation, which will better position Google Cloud to make meaningful contributions to the PyTorch community. As a member of the board, we will deepen our open source investment to deliver on the Foundation’s mission to drive adoption of AI tooling by building an ecosystem of open source projects with PyTorch. We strongly believe in choice and will continue to invest in frameworks such as JAX and Tensorflow and support integrations with other OSS Projects including Spark, Airflow, XGBoost, and others.
