We are living in a golden age of machine learning research. Language models, GANs, and emerging text-to-image generation breakthroughs are happening faster than anyone can reasonably keep up with. Corporations with nation-state level funding are pouring billions of compute hours into generating models to solve specific domains of the general AI problem. But how can you leverage these pieces of academic-grade software to build a coherent gestalt entity?

I'm happy to announce the release of, a lightweight open source microservices architecture for linking together any number of AI research projects into a single consciousness. I'll also introduce Anna, the first proto-personality implemented in persyn.
