working in many other organizations under the DMLC umbrella. In mid 2016 some of the contributors
joined Amazon and continued to contribute to MXNet. In Jan-2017 a proposal was made to Incubate
at Apache, Amazon was supportive of this initiative and has been contributing in terms of
code and documentation and also partnering with other organizations such as Nvidia and Intel
to further advance MXNet.
