Machine learning is a complex technology. So we need simple and Free and Open solutions to create applications so that will solve complex problems we humans face. To trust machine learning applications there is simply no other option than using fully transparent technologies. So Free and Open in the spirit of the Free Software Foundation (https://fsf.org).

If you or your company is committed to openness make sure to support the BM-Support.org Foundation. Supporting this foundation is free! Check https://www.bm-support.org/join/

This publication would never have reached version 1.0 without your help. So I gratefully thank all people who devote time and knowledge to give input to this publication.
