AI model interoperability: ONNX (Microsoft & Facebook)

Microsoft and Facebook create open ecosystem for AI model interoperability - Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit

"Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) format ... provides a shared model representation for interoperability and innovation in the AI framework ecosystem. Cognitive Toolkit, Caffe2, and PyTorch will all be supporting ONNX. Microsoft and Facebook co-developed ONNX as an open source project"

One more thing Microsoft & Facebook did together: an huge-capacity across-ocean optical cable:

Microsoft and Facebook just laid a 160-terabits-per-second cable 4,100 miles across the Atlantic - The Verge

"The Marea cable also provides a path to network hubs in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, where the next billion internet users are anticipated to come from."
