Intel Launches Articul8 – Poised To Revolutionize Enterprise AI!
Updated on Thu, Jan 4, 2024
Following Intel's co-founder, Robert Noyce's legendary words, Intel's gone and unleashed a new beast in the AI jungle!
Enter Articul8 AI, a brainchild spun out by Intel, fueled by aspirations to dominate the AI-powered enterprise software market. Backed by Florida-based asset manager and investor DigitalBridge, this innovation signals a pivotal moment for the tech giant.
Steering the ship is CEO Arun Subramaniyan, a former VP and GM at Intel's data center, his team of ex-Intel personnel reflects Intel's continued interest in the AI space.
So, what's Articul8 all about?
Articul8 AI, read as Articulate AI, stems from Intel's prior collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), birthing a generative AI system that transcends mere text and image comprehension. Utilizing Intel's hardware and a blend of open-source and proprietary software, this system, nestled within BCG's data centers, aims to address stringent security needs.
The genesis of this system dates back a couple of years within Intel's walls but recent fine-tuning honed its prowess, catering specifically to BCG's requirements, as reported by CRN.
Initially exclusive to BCG, Intel has diligently expanded this platform to encompass industries hungry for heightened security and specialized domain expertise across financial services, aerospace, semiconductor and telecommunications.
Would Intel's Articul8 be any different? If yes, then how?
An Intel spokesperson shared insights, highlighting Articul8's product built from the ground up to serve enterprises. According to the spokesperson, “Intel and Articul8 will remain strategically aligned and Intel plans to leverage Articul8’s enterprise gen AI software for internal use cases as well as offer it to end customers as part of a joint go-to-market partnership. This collaboration will drive consumption of Intel compute offerings [and] Intel will continue to leverage Articul8’s AI domain knowledge and expertise as Intel continues to grow its footprint in the generative AI market.”
Offering expedited deployment, scalability, security and cost-effectiveness, the platform ensures data, training and inference stay within the enterprise's security perimeter. Besides, flexibility in deployment, be it cloud, on-premises, or hybrid, adds a cherry on the cake.
According to Marc Ganzi, DigitalBridge CEO, “Every global enterprise today is challenged to integrate GenAI capabilities into their workflows. Articul8 has built a scalable and easy-to-deploy GenAI software platform that is already enabling enterprises to unlock value from their proprietary data. We see GenAI as a pivotal force driving digital infrastructure, and we are pleased to collaborate with Intel to support Articul8’s growth.”
However, you might be wondering why has Intel made this move:
The collaboration between Intel and Articul8 isn't just a passing phase; it's a strategic alliance. Intel plans to integrate Articul8's enterprise GenAI software internally while extending it to end customers via a joint go-to-market partnership.
This move resonates with Intel's recent strategy of seeking external funding for business units. The launch of Articul8 echoes their pattern of spinning off divisions, aligning with CEO Pat Gelsinger's ambitious revival plan.
“With its deep AI and HPC (high performance computing) domain knowledge and enterprise-grade GenAI deployments, Articul8 is well positioned to deliver tangible business outcomes for Intel and our broader ecosystem of customers and partners. As Intel accelerates AI everywhere, we look forward to our continued collaboration with Articul8," said Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO.
Gelsinger aims to fortify Intel's presence in advanced chip manufacturing and Articul8's role fits seamlessly into this vision, positioning Intel to compete vigorously against industry rivals like Nvidia and AMD.
Now that Intel has set foot in the AI world with Articul8, it would be interesting to see if it will be able to compete with other AI giants.
Do you think Articul8 will be an opportunity for Intel to make a grand entry into the realm of GenAI-powered enterprise solutions? How will Intel’s clients benefit from this new AI-powered solution?
