AI Operations: It Can’t Be Just an Afterthought


By Grant Gustafson | October 30, 2018 | HPC, machine learning, deep learning, AI



I’d like to draw your attention to a webinar taking place tomorrow, Wednesday October 31st, at 11am CDT. This is a must-attend webinar for anyone who is exploring how to deploy and manage an Artificial Intelligence (AI) environment. 

In the worlds of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL), operations and deployment are subjects that often falls by the wayside. And the split reality between everyday on-premises Artificial Intelligence (AI) work and the industry’s fascination with more aspirational cloud-based AI work only makes matters worse.

For adoption of AI/ML/DL to be actionable for Enterprise customers, the full spectrum of on-premises and cloud-based work needs to be accommodated. Deployment and operations across environments needs to be consistent. On-premises provisioning and deployment should feel cloud-like in ease-of-use, and hybrid scenarios need to be handled robustly. Installation and management of frameworks and models needs to be handled too.

Dell, NVIDIA and Bright Computing have joined forces to sponsor this webinar, which will feature GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guests, Adnan Khaleel from Dell EMC, and Professor Sambit Bhattacharya of Fayetteville State University, a customer of Bright Computing.

Fayetteville State University first became a Bright Computing customer in August 2017, when it chose to deploy Bright Cluster Manager for use in ground-breaking Artificial Intelligence (AI) research. Bright technology was installed to support Fayetteville’s specific advances in deep architectures for artificial neural networks, to build an automated computer system that could analyze text and video data. Professor Bhattacharya is a long-time supporter of Bright Computing, having previously commented that “Bright Cluster Manager is the obvious choice for our clustered infrastructure needs.”
