Hugging Face raised $100 million for open/collaborative machine learning
Big news from our friends at Hugging Face:
Hugging Face is now the fastest growing community & most used platform for machine learning! With 100,000 pre-trained models & 10,000 datasets hosted on the platform for NLP, computer vision, speech, time-series, biology, reinforcement learning, chemistry and more, the Hugging Face Hub has become the Home of Machine Learning to create, collaborate, and deploy state-of-the-art models.
What will they spend the money on? Good stuff:
Thanks to the new funding, we’ll be doubling down on research, open-source, products and responsible democratization of AI.
