I hope this email finds everyone well. I’m here to introduce myself but also ask for
anyone who would be interested in helping me out on a fun side project that me and my
colleague, Teng, have planned. I’m Kaitlyn Abdo and I’m an Associate Technical Marketing
Manager at Red Hat, specifically for the AI/ML products and offerings. Teng is a Principal
Technical Product Manager at Red Hat as well, but I’ll let Teng formally introduce himself
To give the TLDR, we want to package PyTorch for Fedora. We are looking for individuals in
the community who are interested in making this happen with us. We will be hosting most of
the discussion moving forward on the AI/ML discussion page
) on Fedora Discussion, but we will
still send out major communication through the mailing lists.
We are aware of several existing SIGs (ML SIG-https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/ML
Heterogeneous Computing Special Interest SIG-https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/HC
) and would like to help reignite
activity in a coordinated way. I talked to the leadership of the ML SIG about revamping
and possibly merging other less active SIGs to create a broader AI/ML SIG. The ML SIG
leadership agreed that this could be beneficial for communication and project purposes, so
I’m open to input from both leadership and individuals in other SIGs.
Please reach out to either me at kabdo(a)redhat.com or Teng at tema(a)redhat.com if you are
interested. We are in the very early stages of this and want to build a team of anyone who
would be interested. Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you!
