Duality Tech

"We’re very happy and proud about our growing relationship with Intel. We’re firm believers in standards and open source, particularly open source cryptography, because open standards and open source implementations are required to trust cryptographic libraries. We engaged with Intel very early on the notion of standards for homomorphic encryption, and we’ve had ongoing engagements which have continued to bear fruit, such as our membership in the AI Builders ecosystem, where we’re able to get visibility for our products to allow organizations to run analytics on sensitive data without having full access to the data itself. One of the things that’s nice about the Intel 3rd generation Xeon processors, particularly for homomorphic encryption, is that the underlying encryption compute primitives are vectorized operations. So these very advanced instruction sets for vectorized operations, called AVX, help accelerate Duality products on Intel hardware."

Dr. Kurt RohloffCTO and co‐founder of Duality Technologies


"By working with AI Builders, we have been able to add support for AVX-512 to our Augmented Neuron solution very quickly.

The optimized models give a clear benefit both for basic inference time, as well as for throughput. Using OpenVINO will also enable us to potentially use integrated Intel GPUs, which is of great interest to Irisity. From a pure R&D perspective it has been very valuable to be able to evaluate the hardware with support from Intel.”

Stefan NilssonComputer Vision Specialist, Irisity


“Intel SGX is one of the few effective confidential computing technologies addressing the security of data-in-use, which enables high-valued data including trained AI models to be widely shared, traded, and used in a secure way without losing privacy and ownership -- and this cannot be, at this moment, effectively achieved by other GPU based architectures. We have been closely working with Intel in multiple collaboration scopes since early 2018, and Intel AI Builders is definitely one of the most exciting programs, from which we are given access to intel’s hardware supporting the next generation of confidential computing, and our privacy-preserving AI tests have been conducted and meet perfectly our initial requirements.”

Lei ZhangDirector of Information Security, iExec


“We have a huge amount of data which we’ve been collecting for the last five years, a lot of our models were GPU based incurring tremendous cost, and the computational power required for GPUs is significantly more. That’s when we realized that using Intel’s technology and expertise in hardware computing could be of tremendous value, not just for us but for all our consumers as well. When we joined AI Builders, we started transferring all of our AI models to OpenVINO. This exercise made us realize that none of our core AI models require GPU, and now they’re all running on Intel Xeon Scalable processors, and we’ve increased our hardware resource utilization as a result. What really made this journey incredible is that shifting from GPU based architectures to Intel Xeon and OpenVINO improved our speeds by several times more than we anticipated. So, it’s been a fantastic journey so far and we’re still engaged with Intel AI Builders and will hopefully continue this journey going forward.”

Sharath PuranikDirector of Product & Engineering at Stylumia


“While working with a key government project we were tasked to analyze crowd dynamics and deploy facial recognition at scale across 250 cameras. We had to track customers, analyze facial expressions, count the people all in real time, and this required heavy GPU based compute, as you can imagine the infrastructure required to do that is quite massive. We had to look at more optimized solutions, so any performance improvement that we could achieve could mean a lot of savings to the customer, and that’s when we were introduced to the AI Builders program. We were able to learn how to optimize using Intel’s distribution of the OpenVINO toolkit, so that we can infer using a converted IR model. What that meant for us was a significant improvement increase over what we had earlier as a baseline, so today we can process cameras using a single CPU instance.”

Shameer ThahaGlobal Chief Strategy Officer, Accubits


“Our relationship with Intel has expanded over the last few years from both a customer and partner perspective. Due to the way our models are constantly adapting in production we need to be really efficient on CPU. The AI Builders team has helped us a lot with benchmarking our translation system and helping to make it really efficient by putting in CPU specific optimizations, such as Intel optimizations for TensorFlow. This makes a meaningful difference for our system in the live production setting by helping to improve speed and lower cost.”

Spence GreenCEO of Lilt

“We needed help to optimize our footprint and have been using Intel Xeon servers for deployments and Intel NUCs for our edge. Our customers were interested to know how much capacity we could squeeze out of each server, making our solution more scalable and at the same time reducing our footprint across the many sites we have. We worked with the AI Builders engineering team on our predictive maintenance and vision use cases to use OpenVINO, and learned a lot in the process, specifically how to effectively pin cores, work on multiple sockets, understand accuracy, quantization, and post training optimization on our models. Thanks to this optimization for multiple use cases we have seen 2 to 3X improvement in performance while not compromising accuracy.”

Ganesh IyerCTO of Knowledge Lens


With a high-performance medical application like ours, a major share of the AI workloads are carried out by the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit. As our customers' platforms don't adhere to a single hardware configuration, we must assess various hardware platforms in advance so we can verify that the performance falls within our specifications. Intel® DevCloud for Edge serves this exact purpose and enables us to benchmark our AI workloads on a variety of platforms not found on-premise.

Chris SchneeCMO, MaxQ AI

"We deploy AI technologies in multiple areas of our business, but the one with the greatest impact is in supporting our identity validation product, which currently sees broad adoption in the financial services and FinTech space. During an identity validation process, we need to make sure that the person is who they say they are, and this involves making sure that the identification documents they are presenting are real documents that have not been manipulated. We are currently leveraging Intel AI technologies in this document validation process, deploying optimized code libraries and stacks that have greatly improved our model development times and vastly reduced the amount of computing resources needed to run these models in production. This has enabled us to innovate much faster, quickly building, training and validating new machine learning models to handle documents. It has also improved our bottom line results, since we can use the same infrastructure resources to handle much larger loads.

The engagement with the Intel team and their close support were fundamental in enabling us to quickly test and then deploy the Intel technologies on our production environment, with minimal impact to our clients. We are very excited to continue this partnership in the future, and we are already looking into other areas of the business where we use machine learning as potential candidates to benefit from Intel technologies.
