IBM, one of the early leaders in AI, has launched an all-new generative AI and data platform, Watsonx.
IBM Watson was one of the earliest AI platforms that saw widespread use and adoption. With ChatGPT-like generative AI representing the next major evolution of the technology, IBM is getting onboard with its new Watsonx.
“With the development of foundation models, AI for business is more powerful than ever,” said Arvind Krishna, IBM Chairman and CEO. “Foundation models make deploying AI significantly more scalable, affordable, and efficient. We built IBM watsonx for the needs of enterprises, so that clients can be more than just users, they can become AI advantaged. With IBM watsonx, clients can quickly train and deploy custom AI capabilities across their entire business, all while retaining full control of their data.”
The company says Watsonx will allow businesses to use IBM-curated models to help adapt AI to their needs:
With watsonx, IBM is offering an AI development studio with access to IBM-curated and trained foundation models and open-source models, access to a data store to enable the gathering and cleansing of training and tuning data, and a toolkit for governance of AI into the hands of businesses that will provide a seamless end-to-end AI workflow that will make AI easier to adapt and scale.
