AI engineering: making AI real

Leestijd: 2 minuten

Few technologies create a level of hype, excitement and fear these days as artificial intelligence (AI). The uninitiated believe that general AI is around the corner and worry that Skynet will take over soon.

Not because the technology doesn’t work, as it does in several or even many cases, but because rolling out a machine learning (ML) or deep learning (DL) model in production-quality, industry-strength deployments remains a significant engineering challenge. Companies such as Peltarion help address some of these and do a great job at it.
