Today’s Artificial Intelligence solutions tend to be specialized in specific applications and functions, and rely on maintenance by a select few developers. They are talent-intensive, expensive, difficult to reproduce, and overall unsustainable. As a result, AI currently remains inaccessible to most organizations.
We provide an AI software platform that allows enterprises to design, build, experiment, customize, operate and own vertical AI solutions in a wide range of industries and areas, such as healthcare, industrial manufacturing and utilities, financial services, telecommunications, autonomous driving, and beyond. Petuum lets enterprises easily understand and leverage AI to gain deep insight for better decision-making and improved productivity and efficiency.
Petuum was founded by scientists and professors from Carnegie Mellon University, including Dr. Eric Xing, who is ranked the top CS/AI researcher in the world. Our mission is to enable organizations to own, build and become informed users of their AI solutions, without relying on expensive talents. We do this by transforming AI into an industrial technology, complete with standardized processes, software design tools, building blocks for data processing and ML, and customizable reference designs that allow AI solutions to be consistently mass-produced, with low total cost, support for small to very large data sizes, and high task accuracy. These software technologies are supported by Petuum's training programs for AI engineering, which are aimed at teaching industrial subject matter experts and business analysts to become AI builders and informed users. In this way, Petuum is enabling the eventual integration of AI into the foundation of every industry.
With $108 million in investor funding led by SoftBank, Petuum is one of the highest-funded AI and Machine Learning startups. Petuum was named a 2018 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, one of only 61 start-ups in the world to be so honored. Read more
