Determined AI is a San Francisco-based startup that provides a software stack designed to train AI models faster, at any scale, using its open source machine learning (ML) platform. HPE says it will combine Determined AI's unique software solution with its world-leading AI and high-performance computing (HPC) offerings to enable ML engineers to easily implement and train machine learning models to provide faster and more accurate insights from their data in almost every industry.
"As we enter the Age of Insight, our customers recognize the need to add machine learning to deliver better and faster answers from their data," says Justin Hotard, senior vice president and general manager, HPC and Mission Critical Solutions (MCS), HPE. "AI-powered technologies will play an increasingly critical role in turning data into readily available, actionable information to fuel this new era. Determined AI's unique open source platform allows ML engineers to build models faster and deliver business value sooner without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure."
Building and training optimized machine learning models at scale is considered the most demanding and critical stage of ML development, and doing it well increasingly requires researchers and scientists to face many challenges frequently found in HPC. These include properly setting up and managing a highly parallel software ecosystem and infrastructure spanning specialized compute, storage, fabric and accelerators. Additionally, users need to program, schedule and train their models efficiently to maximize the utilization of the highly specialized infrastructure they have set up, creating complexity and slowing down productivity.
Determined AI's open source machine learning training platform is designed to close this gap by helping researchers and scientists focus on innovation and accelerate their time to delivery by removing the complexity and cost associated with machine learning development. This includes making it easy to set up, configure, manage and share workstations or AI clusters that run on-premises or in the cloud.
