PHILOSOPHY

Thinking Machines innovates with open source, open science, and open data. We have a vision of broadly accessible technological progress for all. Our Open TM initiative is one piece of the work we do to turn that vision into reality.

open source

We believe that open source culture lifts up our whole industry. Our goal is to set a standard in the region for building sustainably in the fast-moving world of data science. Here is where we share some of the most useful tools we've built.

open data

We've benefited from open data, and believe that sharing datasets of public interest benefits everyone, not just fellow data scientists. Here is where you'll find the datasets we share with government agencies, academic researchers, and civic data enthusiasts.

open science

We promote quality research that is reproducible and accessible to data practitioners. Here is where we share the papers, code, and data of our preprocessing, experimentation, and modeling workflow.

PRACTICES

To ensure that our open-source projects are of high-quality, we follow a set of standards and practices whenever we build, ship, and deploy our software. You are invited to take a look at how Thinking Machines do open-source, open data, and open science!
