Marvin-AI is an open-source artificial intelligence (AI) platform that helps
data scientists, prototype and productionalize complex solutions with a
scalable, low-latency, language-agnostic, and standardized architecture
while simplifies the process of exploration and modeling.

Marvin-AI has been incubating since 2018-08-21.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Increase activity from current contributors and community.
 2. Finish the new version of Toolbox.
 3. Update old examples

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 No.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 We have expanded "Marvin-lab" at the university and several postgraduate
 students in the artificial intelligence field are using marvin as their
 research tool.

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 1. Minor bug fix
 2. Refactoring the toolbox to allow the architecture change (Marvin
 Daemon).
 3. Discussions about architectural changes and a plugin system to make
 the code less bloated.

### How would you assess the podling's maturity?

 Dave Fisher: There are discussions and it looks like Luciano is providing
 guidance.
 If there were another mentor involved it might help the podling.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. Increase activity from current contributors and community.
 2. Build compatibility with all the mainstream storages for artifact
 persistence.
 3. Finish the new version of Toolbox.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?
 * A lot of conversations about the project in last few months happened
   in private channel, because of some contributing groups known to each
   other. We have already warned everyone about the importance of
   discussing on open lists.

### How has the community developed since the last report?
 * in the last few months we have focused on development of university
 communities,
 we set up "Marvin-lab" at the university we have the partnership, and
 several postgraduate
 students in the artificial intelligence field started using marvin as
 their main tool for their research.

### How has the project developed since the last report?
 * Minor bug fixes.
 * Compatibility with MS Azure Blob for artifact persistence.
 * New contents and structure improvements in project documentation.
 * AutoML module and integration with Apache Spark MLib in construction.
