12 Opensource Tools for Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now in trend because people are looking for some sought of technology that makes their lives more easy and valuable. Even the smartphones are shifting their focus towards Artificial Intelligence. Big companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are already working on it and contributing in the form of Opensource AI Tools. For example, Facebook came up with an open-source AI project called Torchnet to accelerate the AI research and in the same way, Google open-source AI project is DeepMind Lab.  A Recent study at Standford University stated that the AI (report) will show it huge impact in coming years. So, today in this article we are going to show some variety of useful open-source artificial intelligence software that helps in building your AI projects.
