Zinrai Deep Learning System - accelerate AI responsibly
What does it take to innovate responsibly with AI solutions?
For businesses worldwide, artificial intelligence has become an indispensable and widely used tool with the power to deliver competitive advantage. With its ability to identify patterns and detect anomalies in mountains of digital data, AI, once trained, is tireless in processing standard tasks. From deep learning solutions, machine learning solutions, intelligent automation, and cognitive computing to robotics, computer vision, natural language processing, and knowledge reasoning - artificial intelligence technology delivers the ‘next level’ in business.
While the benefits gained are both exceptional and crucial to driving innovation, AI solutions come at a cost, with long term implications for future generations and the environment. AI systems are extremely power hungry, with training a single AI model said to release as much carbon as 5 cars in its whole lifetime* [*data from the MIT technology review]
Within AI the most effective method has been found to be deep learning which makes the computation of multi-layered neural networks feasible. Widely adopted across multiple industries, deep learning provides the technology needed to work with extremely large data sets, enabling businesses to address a wide range of areas, not restricted to:
- fraud mitigation
- increased process automation to reduce human interaction
- faster, more accurate predictions
- proactive insight into customer needs
- autonomous vehicles with object detection
- driver to mobility-as-a-service
While deep learning provides immense benefits and has the capability of changing the way we live, it also has the largest carbon footprint. So, the question is how can we take advantage of AI deep learning while ensuring a better tomorrow?
The answer is Zinrai Deep Learning System (ZDLS) powered by Deep Learning Unit (DLU) - Fujitsu’s unique AI processor optimized for deep learning. ZDLS with DLU uses fewer resources, less cost and energy, enabling organizations to mitigate the risk of an increasing carbon footprint as generated by today’s AI systems.
