Why Petuum Optimum vs Traditional Solutions

  • Sophisticated techniques for data cleaning and normalizing so the AI is robust to noisiness, unlike traditional solutions
  • Applied ML/DL models that learn based on real data, avoiding assumptions of linearity or correlation, and sensitive to linear, non-linear, temporal and long-range patterns in the data
  • Repeatable machine learning pipelines and standardized interfaces with control systems, for scalable, rapid deployment and time to value
