Much as Open Source has changed industries, industry has also changed Open Source. We should expect Open Source to continue to evolve as other technologies and segments embrace and participate in Open Source. Its evolution will in part be driven by the incentives that exist for organisations to participate.

This presentation discusses how changing technologies can modify the incentives for organisations to participate in Open Source. For example, how platforms as a service has changed participation models in these service technologies.

We will also hypothesize on how the Open Source community can ensure incentives exist to enable broad sustainable participation in 3 technology areas of future importance: Machine Learning, Standards and Open Hardware.
