ARMONK, N.Y., Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today introduced AI OpenScale, a new technology platform that addresses key challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) adoption, such as concerns over how AI applications make decisions, the global shortage of AI skills and the complexities of working with disparate AI tools from multiple vendors.

IBM's new technology platform is the first of its kind. It will enable companies to manage AI transparently throughout the full AI lifecycle, irrespective of where their AI applications were built or in which environment they currently run. AI OpenScale can detect and address bias across the spectrum of AI applications, as those applications are being run.

As part of AI OpenScale, IBM also will debut NeuNetS, a major scientific breakthrough in which AI builds AI – making it possible to create complex, deep-neural networks from scratch. This will help address the AI skills gap and accelerate scaling AI.

"To accelerate AI adoption, businesses need one place to run all their AI," said David Kenny [pictured], senior vice president, IBM Cognitive Solutions. "We are committed to enabling our clients to use the AI of their choice, regardless of vendor – and use IBM AI OpenScale to make it transparent and easy to manage. Only through enabling businesses to trust and scale their AI will we enable the AI economy." More...
