Linux Foundation Announces Open Platform for Building Enterprise AIs

The Open Platform for Enterprise AI (OPEA) supported by the Linux Foundation AI & Data Foundation is designed to foster extensible, accessible, and scalable AI platforms for enterprise developers. OPEA aims to accelerate secure, cost-effective generative AI (GenAI) deployments for businesses by driving interoperability across a diverse and heterogeneous ecosystem, starting with retrieval-augmented generation (RAG).

The Linux Foundation AI & Data Foundation has recently announced the Open Platform for Enterprise AI (OPEA) as its latest Sandbox Project. OPEA is a collaborative effort that brings together industry leaders, including Intel, Red Hat, VMware, Cloudera, MariaDB Foundation, and others, to develop open-source AI solutions for companies worldwide.
