Become a Member

MLCommons is a community-driven and community-funded effort and we are proud to include a variety of member organizations from across the globe. As an open engineering consortium, membership is available on a non-discriminatory basis to a wide variety of organizations including corporations, academic researchers, nonprofits and government organizations, and select individuals.

Membership offers several benefits

If you are interested in membership, please contact

Submit MLPerf Results

If you are interested in submitting MLPerf benchmark results, please join the appropriate working group. Note that many of our benchmarks require that your company be a member in good standing to submit.

Typically, the registration deadline is several weeks in advance of submission to ensure that all submitters are aware of benchmark requirements and to provision the necessary resources.

Use MLPerf Results

MLPerf is a trademark of MLCommons. The use of the MLPerf results and trademark are described in our Policies.

Sign or Get Authorized on the CLA

Generally we encourage people to become a member if they wish to contribute to MLCommons projects. However, if you are interested in contributing to one of our open source projects and do not think your organization would be a good fit as a member, please fill out this CLA sign up form.

If your organization is already a member of MLCommons, you can also use the CLA sign up form to request authorization to commit code in accordance with the CLA.


We are a pretty friendly organization and easy to contact.
