Showcasing AI That Solves Real World Business Challenges

By Victor Thu

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not just for novelty sake and publicity announcements! This is a fundamental belief at Petuum, where solve real-world challenges with AI, which is why we are excited to showcase a number of our AI technologies at ICML 2019.

ICML is one of the premier conferences for Machine Learning (ML) scientists. Each year, the conference attracts thousands of scientists who want to collaborate and share the latest development in AI/ML. This year, ICML is in Long Beach, California, where Petuum’s CEO, Professor Eric Xing, is the general chair for ICML 2019.

As a Platinum Sponsor of this prestigious conference, Petuum aims to share several innovations that we are providing to customers.

Petuum has been delivering state-of-the-art AI solutions to customers who sometimes get overlooked like those in the industrial manufacturing sector. We provide solutions to these customers that is not solely based on ML modeling. We are focused on learning the intricacies of their entire environment and processes from the different variable constraints to operational excellence initiatives and more. Petuum works with the customer’s subject matter experts to incorporate these various elements to deliver a solution that is beneficial to industrial customers.

At Petuum’s ICML booth, visitors can see live demos of PetuumMed, our flagship healthcare product suite. Attendees can see firsthand how Petuum looks at challenges in healthcare today and provides a series of key solutions that address the entire lifecycle of care. We combine multiple sophisticated methodologies where PetuumMed can ingest medical images and subsequently compose an understandable human report. And that’s just one of the many use cases! PetuumMed combines the latest in machine learning to enable real-time medical decision support and point-of-care assistance across the care continuum.

ICML attendees talking to PetuumMed product manager, Xin Gao, about our advanced ML for healthcare.

Many of you are probably familiar with our founders’ breakthrough work called “Poseidon”, where we fundamentally removed the scaling barriers with hardware resources. At ICML, Petuum is introducing our next evolution in scalable ML, “Arion”. This next generation of highly scalable ML will further advance ML training and take it to the next level once again.

In addition to the above real-world solutions that Petuum is providing to customers, we are committed to collaborating and sharing with the AI/ML community. Here is a list of Petuum’s accepted papers and workshops at ICML where you can learn more about our work:
