Press Release: Baidu Joins the Open Invention Network Community

DURHAM, N.C., June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Open Invention Network (OIN), the largest patent non-aggression community in history, and Baidu, the largest Chinese language search engine and one of the leading artificial intelligence (AI) companies in the world, announced today that Baidu has joined as a community member. As an active supporter of open source and an important contributor of global open source technology, Baidu is committed to promoting the rapid development of AI through an open source platform and facilitating industrial transformation.

“Artificial intelligence-driven and internet-based services continue to spawn new industries while advancing business performance through actionable intelligence. As a global leader in internet and AI-related services and products, Baidu recognizes the benefits of shared innovation inherent in open source,” said Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network. “We are pleased Baidu has joined our community and committed to patent non-aggression in Linux and adjacent open source technologies.” 

“Baidu is and will always be a strong supporter and participant of open source," said Cui Lingling, the head of Baidu’s Patent Department, “Baidu has launched a number of open source platforms including Apollo (Autonomous Driving Platform), PaddlePaddle (Parallel Distributed Deep Learning) and the like, and has been actively building patent cooperation. Baidu is a world-leading artificial intelligence platform company. Baidu’s participation in the OIN community shows our consistent commitment to open source innovation. Baidu will continue to support Linux patent protection and help foster a healthy Linux ecosystem."

OIN’s community practices patent non-aggression in core Linux and adjacent open source technologies by cross-licensing Linux System patents to one another royalty-free. Similarly, OIN licenses its patents royalty-free to organizations that agree not to assert their patents against the Linux System. The OIN license can be signed online at

PaddlePaddle, as the only independent R&D deep learning platform in China, has been officially open-sourced to professional communities since 2016. DuerOS, as an open operating system, has released an open platform, and built a voice ecosystem, and also provided support for third party integration. Baidu Cloud primarily provides AI solutions, cloud infrastructure and other services to enterprises and individuals. Apollo, as the world's largest open-source autonomous driving platform, supports commercial production of autonomous driving vehicles and incorporates autonomous driving capabilities, including valet parking.
