G-Core Labs launches platform to help develop AI-based apps faster
G-Core Labs, an international provider of cloud and edge solutions, has launched an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that is part of the company’s public cloud. The platform reportedly allows business and development teams to significantly reduce the time-to-market of their applications based on artificial intelligence.
G-Core Labs is an international cloud and edge specialist in content delivery, public cloud, hosting and security solutions for any business headquartered in Luxembourg.
The platform supports a full machine learning cycle of any complexity, allowing you to organise continuous delivery of models, collaborate on them in real time and access a catalogue of ready-made templates and models.
The platform is currently based in Luxembourg. In the future, G-Core Labs plans to deploy it in all existing and promising regions of presence of the company’s public cloud, including the USA, Germany, Russia, Singapore, Brazil, and Australia.
“The G-Core Labs AI platform is a single comprehensive portal for the accelerated building, training, and deployment of applications based on artificial intelligence. The platform works on the one-stop-shop principle so that any developer can fully concentrate on the development of their ML models and services without worrying about preparing infrastructure, purchasing necessary software, getting set up, and providing frameworks, data storage systems, and technical support for all these elements.
Thanks to this, according to our estimates, companies and teams that work on products and models based on machine learning can speed up development 2–3 times in comparison to if they had to set up the entire infrastructure on their own,” says Vsevolod Vayner, G-Core Labs head of cloud platforms.
The AI platform integrates modern solutions for receiving and processing data, including: Kafka, Storm, Spark, PySpark, PostgreSQL, MS SQL, Oracle, MongoDB. It has data exploration and visualisation tools, such as Matplotlib, Seaborn and TensorBoard, along with numerous development tools such as Jupyter, PyCharm, Visual Studio Code, GitLab, GitHub, RStudio, XCode and Airflow.
The platform is said by G-Core Labs AI to open up opportunities for projects related to the recognition of people, images, objects and documents. Such applications will be useful in the retail, finance, insurance and media industries, in addition to healthcare and public safety.
For example, supermarket chains or fashion clothing stores can use a video surveillance system and an AI-based service to create a reliable profile of their visitors and customers in real time, as well as collect accurate data on how many people visit the store each day, week, month or quarter, how many were men or women, what their approximate age was, which products they paid attention to first, and, finally, whether the visitors left the store satisfied or not.
When it comes to healthcare, the AI platform can help create algorithms for analysing medical images, including X-rays, ECGs, and EEGs, thereby significantly increasing the accuracy of diagnoses in comparison to conclusions made by doctors independently.
Also, applications for recognising people and objects are beginning to be widely used in the media industry. “G-Core Labs development teams are currently working on AI-based products that allow an Internet user or a TV viewer, for example, to receive information in one click about the actors and landmarks in the frame, the players on a basketball court or football field, or the dress or watch an actor is wearing. This will provide great, new opportunities for advertisers,” adds Vsevolod Vayner.
G-Core Labs provides a wide range of services for customers of all industries that develop their business online. The company’s services include public cloud, managed hosting, content delivery network (CDN), advanced media platform for professional broadcasts and streaming of any complexity, protection against DDoS attacks of any level, protection against malicious bots, cloud content storage etc. G-Core Labs built its own global infrastructure on all continents with the best CDN performance in Europe, Russia and the CIS. The network has 100+ points of presence located in more than 65 cities around the world in reliable Tier IV and Tier III data centres.
The company’s clients are international and national brands in telecommunications, finance, media, software & video games developers and publishers, SaaS service providers and manufacturing companies. They include Avast, Michelin, SIBUR, MTS, Beeline, Megaphone, Tinkoff Bank, Wargaming holding (World of Tanks, World of Warships, World of Warplanes), American games publisher RedFox Games, TV channels in Europe and the CIS (Channel One, TNT, Match TV), Japanese video game publisher Bandai Namco, online retailers Lamoda, and AWOK.
