The founding members of LF Deep Learning are Amdocs, AT&T, B.Yond, Baidu, Huawei, Nokia, Tech Mahindra, Tencent, Univa, and ZTE.
The latest update is extensive and comes as the project is under the shadow of an impending merger with five other hosted networking projects within the Linux Foundation.
