Featuring 200 hours of content, 90 thought leaders and experts, and 40+ workshops and training sessions, Europe 2024 will keep you up-to-date with the latest topics and tools in everything from machine learning to generative AI and more.


Trending New Open Source Projects

  • OK-Robot is a zero-shot modular framework that effectively combines the state-of-art navigation and manipulation models to perform pick and place tasks in real homes. It has been tested in 10 real homes on 170+ objects and achieved a total success rate of 58.5%.
  • Hyperdiv is a framework for rapidly developing reactive browser UI apps in Python, with built-in components, terse immediate-mode syntax, and minimal tool boilerplate.
  • Evo is a biological foundation model capable of long-context modeling and design. Evo has 7 billion parameters and is trained on OpenGenome, a prokaryotic whole-genome dataset containing ~300 billion tokens.
  • Fuzzy Search is a Multilingual frontend library for searching objects with ids (entities) by their names and features (terms). A query takes usually well below 10 ms and powered by n-grams with a novel approach of character sorting.
  • kubetail is a Web-based, real-time log viewer for Kubernetes. Viewing application logs in a containerized environment can be challenging. Kubetail solves this problem by providing an easy-to-use, web-based interface that allows you to view all the logs for a set of Kubernetes workloads (e.g. Deployment, CronJob, StatefulSet) simultaneously, in real-time.
  • Ente is a fully open-source, end-to-end encrypted alternative to Google Photos. It is built with TypeScript and has recently gained 4,210 stars.
  • Conductor is an event-driven orchestration platform that is open-source. It is written in Java and has gained 835 stars recently.
  • Fabric is an open-source framework for augmenting humans using AI. It provides a modular framework for solving specific problems using a crowdsourced set of AI prompts that can be used anywhere.
