The Goal

We founded to share and promote the innovative ways Sitecore community members are applying machine learning to solve business problems with our favourite platform.

Our goal is to grow a repository of thought leadership, videos, models and sample code as an inspiration to any Sitecore enthusiast who wants to get started in this exciting space.

We’re currently building out the foundations of the repository. If you’ve published a Sitecore Machine Learning solution that offers clear business value, we’d love to add your work! Drop us a line.
