Digital consulting firm Infosys (News - Alert) has just announced the release of a new applied AI Cloud, which will allow developers to utilize machine learning hardware and software stacks across private and public networks.

The cloud will be a part of Infosys Colbat, and is built on Nvidia DGX A100 systems. Nvidia’s infrastructure will allow hundreds of project teams to run deep learning operations at the same time, giving developers the ability to maximize workloads with high computing power and exceptional performance. Nvidia has also incorporated its Multi-Instance Graphics Processing Unit technology for processing AI algorithms centrally or locally on any device.

“Many organizations are eager to infuse their business with AI but lack the strategic platform on which they can pool expertise and scale the computing resources needed to build mission-critical AI applications,” said Charlie Boyle, vice president and general manager of DGX Systems at Nvidia

The AI cloud platform developed by Infosys and Nvidia will allow organizations to access cognitive services such as chatbots, supply chain oversight, and smart retail checkouts. The cloud also makes it easy to integrate company data for continuous AI training. Artificial intelligence is quickly being integrated across all business sectors, but some companies lack the resources and computing power to tackle these projects. This new AI solution would allow faster adaptation to cloud resources, and give less equipped developers the chance to integrate machine learning into company operations.

“For a long time now, AI has been playing a key role in shaping consumer experience,” said Balakrishna D.R., senior vice president and head of AI and automation services at Infosys. “Cloud, data analytics and AI are now converging to bring the opportunity for enterprises to not just drive consumer experience but reimagine processes and capabilities too.”
