Topic :

Detecting trends in Open Source technologies.

Abstract :

Open Source is the future of technology. However, the task of identifying what nascent open source technologies might be the stars a couple of years down the line, is like finding a needle in a haystack. We developed a solution that uses machine learning on unstructured and semi-structured data in the form of millions of open source projects and hundreds of thousands of technology articles, to predict high potential emerging technologies early in their journey. This helps our client (a Fortune 100 tech company) adapt to a rapidly changing open source ecosystem, and guide strategic decisions around R&D, product portfolio, M&A etc.
