A Multinational Computer Technology and IT Consulting Corporation known by the nickname "Big Blue" i.e IBM on October 15, 2018 came up with the Artificial Intelligence (AI) OpenScale, a new technology platform that will enable companies to manage Artificial Intelligence transparently throughout the full Artificial Intelligence lifecycle, irrespective of the applications built or whichever environment the enterprise is working on.
IBM Artificial Intelligence (AI) supports machine learning and deep learning models that are developed and trained in any open source model, which includes Scikit learn, SparkML, Tensorflow, and Keras, and also supports the applications and models trained and hosted in any integrated development environment such as Seldon, Microsoft AzureML, and Watson.
"Our strategy is to use an open, interoperable approach to fuel the AI economy," David Kenny, senior vice president of IBM Cognitive Solutions, said in the release. "We believe AI OpenScale represents a new technology category and the start of a new era in the mass adoption of AI for business because it is open - making any AI much easier to operate and fully transparent."
The Artificial Intelligence OpenScale helps in auditability, automates explainability, and mitigates bias throughout the lifecycle of AI in a vendor-agnostic way. It also explains how AI recommendations are made in every business terms to help companies to understand how applications reach decisions.
IBM also announced the Industry-first service IBM Multicloud Manager, that automates how companies can move, manage and how they can integrate apps across multiple cloud environments.
Multicloud Manager also helps businesses to manage and combine workloads on clouds from providers including IBM and businesses like Microsoft, Amazon, and Red Hat. Multicloud Manager offers more visibility across clouds, improved governance and security, and automation to track risk.
IBM Multicloud Manager will be available in late October 2018, whereas, IBM AI OpenScale will be available in the next coming year through IBM Cloud Private and IBM Cloud.
