Today’s artificial intelligence solutions tend to be specialized in specific applications and functions, and rely on maintenance by a select few developers. They are talent-intensive, expensive, difficult to reproduce, and overall unsustainable. As a result, AI currently remains inaccessible to most organizations.
Petuum was founded by scientists and professors from Carnegie Mellon University, including Dr. Eric Xing, who is ranked the top CS/AI researcher in the world. Our mission is to enable organizations to own, build and become informed users of their AI solutions, without relying on expensive talent. We do this by transforming AI into an industrial technology, complete with standardized processes, software design tools, building blocks for data processing and ML, and customizable reference designs that allow AI solutions to be consistently mass-produced, with low total cost, support for small to very large data sizes, and high task accuracy. These software technologies are supported by Petuum’s training programs for AI engineering, which are aimed at teaching industrial subject matter experts and business analysts to become AI builders and informed users. In this way, Petuum is enabling the eventual integration of AI into the foundation of every industry.
Petuum was named a 2018 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, one of only 61 start-ups in the world to be so honored.
With our research, development, and technical strength, we solve problems at the forefront of machine learning, distributed systems, and human-computer interaction.
