Eclipse AI, Cloud & Edge (AICE) Working Group

The Eclipse AI, Cloud & Edge (AICE) is an Eclipse Working Group, currently in construction, to promote the advancement, development and experimentation of open source software for AI, Cloud & Edge technologies. It also manages and operates an open lab (the “AICE OpenLab”) that provides a set of resources to achieve these goals.


The AICE WG and the associated AICE OpenLab achieve 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.

We worked with AICE to audit our current setup and improve the performance of our MLOps pipeline for epileptic seizure detection. We started from a working, although non-optimal, prototype and turned it into a fully optimised, reproducible and scalable workflow that can be seamlessly deployed almost anywhere.

We now have a clean and well-structured repository that we can reuse for future developments, and a set of established best practices to help us build and deliver better software solutions.
