BigData Corp.

"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. We are also looking forward to opportunities to share our stories with other companies, and show them how much they can benefit from applying Intel technologies to their businesses."

"When it comes to the application or the algorithm, it needs to be fast and it needs to be accurate. And I will tell you that our relationship and collaboration with Intel has been invaluable in that regard. They have helped us with the Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform and optimized our code to run considerably faster. The fact that we can run our code means we can add more features and complexity, which increases accuracy. It's been quite helpful for us."

Gene Saragnese CEO, MaxQ AI


"We were greatly benefited by the assistance from AI Builders for Pytorch AI inference optimization. Although AI Training is important, for a medical company which cannot have continuous learning, retraining will only be conducted in short bursts a few times a year and AI updates controlled to ensure any new AI models are better (or no worse) than the previous (validates on past medical images).

The real benefit for us is optimizing the AI Inferencing which we expect to be used ongoing by users globally – which is likely to be the significant cost for us. We can benefit from both cost saving and scalability of our product with the Intel optimizations on Xeon Scalable."

Dr. Don Perugini Co-Founder & Managing Director, Presagen


"Overall, Intel latest Xeon processors have significant improvements on training and inference over previous generations for text, time series related sequence models and image related applications. We are impressed by this improvement, given that we focus on deep learning and majority of our on-premise deployments are only on CPUs. With Intel’s latest processors and the supporting software stacking for AI, we believe that the customers’ experience can be improved to a great extent. Even with our cloud product, we can now move good amount of modeling tasks to CPU instances, which can lower our cost too."

Yuan Shen CEO - Oneclick.ai
