A new report highlights the demand for startups building open source tools and technologies for the snowballing AI revolution, with the adjacent data infrastructure vertical also heating up. A broader look at the “top 50 trending” open source startups last year reveals that more than half (26) are related to AI and data infrastructure. This ethos often translates into commercial open source startups which might not have a traditional center of gravity anchored by a brick-and-mortar HQ. For comparative purposes, there are other indexes and lists out there that give a steer on the “whats hot” in the open source landscape. So the ROSS Index has emerged as a useful complementary tool for figuring out which open source “startups” specifically are worth keeping tabs on.
