The digital revolution has created an ecosystem of consumers who interact with technology on a daily basis, generating data by the second. Today, data has become an important asset and plays a significant role in the development and application of a wide array of solutions around the world, and the DHI companies are no exception.
The 21 subsidiary companies under DHI all operate on the forefront of a diverse range of industries and own a large collection of data. This has created an ecosystem where a substantial amount of data is constantly being generated. To optimally leverage this tremendous volume of big data stored within the companies of DHI and make smart investments, the InnoTech Department at DHI, after due diligent research, is developing a platform for data storage and analysis.
The platform will be customized with technical specifications targeted for Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) computation as primary objective and data transformation and storage as secondary objectives. Additionally, the platform will enable DHI and its group of companies to implement good data collection practices, streamline AI/ML processes and operations, and run analysis.
Some of the features of the on-premise AI/ML Platform include:
The AI/ML Platform will be the first of its kind for DHI and a stepping stone toward innovation in the country. The Platform will be a fundamental building block in integrating AI/ML applications (as well as Deep Learning) to various technology projects in the near future.
The InnoTech team has ordered the Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) server which has been customized specifically for AI/ML computation with:
Once it is delivered the infrastructure will be set up and configured with the necessary security protocols and network access.
