About Petuum

Todays Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) solutions are expensive, high-maintenance, skill-intensive, and difficult to reproduce and mass distribute. Such solutions are also extremely specialized in their applications and functions, and rely on maintenance by a select few developers. AI is currently inaccessible to those who would benefit from it the most. Petuum's mission is to virtualize and standardize AI and ML programming and computing, and transform it into a simple-to-use, transparent, repeatable, and everyday tool for all enterprises.
