Machine Learning SIG

The Machine Learning SIG's goal is to make Fedora the best platform for all things related to Machine Learning. We aim to act a hub in the gap between the Astronomy, Bigdata, Fedora Medical and Science and Technology SIGs and also between all interesting projects related to machine learning in Fedora.

Machine Learning Projects


Thoth is a promising project which uses artificial intelligence to analyze and recommend software stack for artificial intelligence applications. It's based on an assumption that the proper combination of tools and libraries can have a significant impact on the performance of your project.

Thoth is now in the alpha state but it should be soon ready for beta testers.

Github organization:

Optimized TensorFlow builds

The Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence (AICoE) provides a simple Python package index with builds of Tensorflow optimized for Fedora/Centos/RHEL.

Machine Learning Packages

New packages

When submitting a new ml-related package for review, please add "Blocks: ML-SIG" to your review-request. After the review has been granted don't forget to remove it, when filing the SCM-request, please.

When you are filing your SCM-admin-request, you should make sure to request InitialCC for "ml-sig".


New Package SCM Request
Package Name: pkgname
Short Description: summary of package
Owners: foo bar
Branches: f18 f19 f20 el5 el6
InitialCC: ml-sig

Packages waiting for your review

You can find them on the ML-SIG review-tracker.

We would be glad if you would take one or a few. :)

Existing packages

Unfortunately, there is no FAS group for Machine learning SIG so it's not easy to find all the packages we participate on. But we are working to fix it and create a FAS group which will help us to find all related packages and make our contributions easier.

What are we going to do?

  • We're gonna update this wiki page so it can serve as a hub of interesting projects, links to important content, RPM packages etc. Do you know about anything we should have here? Let us know!
  • We'll help ML developers as much as we can. Do you need some help or some new RPM package in Fedora? Let us know!
  • We'll try to make Fedora the best distribution for AI/ML developers and users. Do you know how? Let us know!


There is no formal process for participating; joining the mailing list, hanging out on IRC, or participating in meetings are all fantastic ways to get involved.

A little self-introduction on the mailing list would be nice, too. And, if you want to, add yourself to our members-section above.

Mailing list


We will likely hang out on at #fedora-ml. German members may want to come into #fedora-ml-de, too.

Haven't used IRC for communication before? More information on how to use IRC is available here.


We also have a Telegram group since Flock 2019. You can find it at

The plan is to create a bridge between Telegram and IRC so people can use what they prefer.


We shall have them, and see how it goes.

more to come soon.
