First Open-Source Labeling & Annotation and Visualization Project at the Linux Foundation AI & DATA


Since the launch of BasicAI’s ‘Xtreme1’ on GitHub, hundreds of AI enthusiasts, students, engineers, and experts in the autonomous driving industry have contributed and rated the repository’s page. Even more, experts have joined the Xtreme1 community. More companies & individual developers are realizing how an open-source culture can drive more benefits than subscription-restricted AI models and data.

Today, BasicAI announced its donation of Xtreme1 to the Linux Foundation (LF), a consortium that provides a neutral, trusted hub for developers and organizations to code, manage, and scale open-technology projects and ecosystems.

Xtreme1 is the world’s first open-source multi-sensory training data platform and the first ML Data Ops Software in the Linux AI & Data Ecosystem.

Linux Foundation Landscape: AI & Data Projects

Linux Foundation hosts a plethora of top-notch projects in modern technology such as deep learning repository, ‘PyTorch,’ incubated by Meta AI; ‘Delta Lake,’ by Databricks (parent company of Spark);’ AresDB,’ by Uber; ‘Milvus,’ by Zilliz; and ‘Doccarray,’ by Jina AI.

About LF AI & DATA Foundation

LF AI & DATA Foundation is a specialized Linux Foundation organization founded under the Linux parent company in March 2018. LF AI & DATA’s mission as described by Ibrahim Haddad, Executive Director of LF AI & DATA Foundation, is to “build and support an open artificial intelligence (AI) and data community, and drive open source innovation in the AI and data domains by enabling collaboration and the creation of new opportunities for all the members of the community” (LF AI & DATA).

Why Xtreme1?

Alex S. Liu, CTO at BasicAI, says, “BasicAI is committed to bringing more MLOps features to maintain and grow the community of Xtreme1”.

Xtreme1 accelerates the modeling process with advanced AI-powered tools, thousands of project-distilled ontologies, and a wide variety of data curation features. Xtreme1’s tools make cultivating datasets faster than ever before by maximizing data labeling and processing efficiency (a 72%+ increase in data labeling efficiency for 2D-3D LiDAR-CV Sensor Fusion).

After only two months of being publically available, Xtreme1 has built a substantial community that is attracting supporters and users across the globe. Community members have been able to exchange opinions and make contributions to better Xtreme1, together. With the help and support of the Linux Foundation, Xtreme1 will continue to grow as a more unbiased, safe, and trusted multi-sensory training data platform. The donation of code libraries to LF AI & DATA will be crucial to the continued growth of Xtreme1. Going forward, Xtreme1 will connect to other open-source projects (such as ones within the Linux Foundation) as well as other expert developers. Xtreme1’s addition to the Linux Foundation also helps users to govern and curate datasets with the help of open-source AI technology that is cross-compatible with other open-source projects.

Xtreme1 provides value to the AI community by:

  1. Supporting extreme & highly-efficient data labeling for 2D images, 3D LiDAR and 2D/3D Fusion datasets

  2. Providing built-in AI-powered pre-labeling and interactive models that support 2D/3D object detection, segmentation, and classification

  3. Supplying an Ontology center for sharing AI problem definitions of object classes and data attributes in your model training

  4. Supporting features such as data visualization, organization, versioning, validation, consensus, and analysis

  5. Supporting an engineer-friendly open API and SDK for quick integration and development

The mission, “Open Arms to Open Source” has always guided the development of Xtreme1 within BasicAI‘s engineering team. After donating the Xtreme1 project to LF AI & DATA, Xtreme1 will enjoy a future led by stakeholders in different fields and regions — all with different technical backgrounds. The fusion of multivariate discussions will help Xtreme1 continue to play a role in the wider, competitive AI and computer vision stages.

As the first data Labeling & Annotation project in the LF AI & DATA open-source landscape, BasicAI’s Xtreme1 is committed to setting the standards in the data labeling industry and ushering new projects forward to add to new projects to add to the development of data labeling technology. BasicAI and LF AI & DATA will unite to accelerate open-source technology and promote commercial adoption on a global scale to foster a promising ecosystem for open-source innovation.
