Platform for Rapid Development and Deployment of AI App

Technology Overview

XpanAI platform covers end-to-end AI workflow from data preparation to the building of AI applications. The users including data scientists or data engineers can easily launch and manage any combinations of the tools required. The flexibility and agility of XpanAI platform matches the iterative nature of developing AI applications, and enables fast development and deployment. XpanAI platform is suited for enterprises with limited resources to develop the infrastructure and manage the computing resources required by processing huge amount of data. By using XpanAI platform, company can concentrate on developing their core competence to model data and build appealing AI applications. With the intelligence equipped into our platform, the AI applications built from our platform will achieve high efficiency and performance.

Technology Features, Specifications and Advantages

XpanAI platform is realized through a suite of micro-services using container-based computing orchestrated through Kubernetes. The micro-services abstract and automate the infrastructure management, resource management, machine learning tools and other tools required by different stages of AI workflows. XpanAI platform decouples the high-level logic from the low-level implementation and automate the repetitive low-level implementation. Key features include:

  • Smart AI-assisted Resource Management Automator (SARMA)
  • Launch of Jupyter notebook in minutes with access to Apache Spark; an enabler for distributed deep learning
  • Full Docker and Kubernetes integration.
  • Full Apache Spark integration for Big Data Processing.
  • Full integration of popular deep learning framework including Tensorflow and PyTorch.
  • Fully automated deployment driving CPU and GPU clusters over public clouds including Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
  • Launch of customizable development environment in minutes with pre-configured microservices such as database, dashboard scaffolding AI solutions.

Potential Applications

  • XpanAI platform served as a development and deployment platform to enable SMEs to rapidly develop and deploy AI applications.
  • XpanAI platform can be used as a training platform to help users to learn how to develop AI applications.

Customer Benefit

As a development and deployment platform, it offers the following benefits:

  • Easy and intuitive - Easy access to the data and tools by abstracting away low-level details with intelligence.
  • Scalability - Effective pipeline management with automatic scaling up/down based on demand for efficient and scalable deployment for each stage of the whole data pipeline.
  • Efficiency - Optimization engine to enhance the efficiency
  • Flexibility – Support GPU/TPU/CPU clusters over the cloud and on premise deployment.

As a training platform, it offers the following benefits:

  • Enables learners to have hands-on experience and practice of tools/framework/systems required by different stages of the fully development cycle of Al applications.
  • Centralized management of the libraries, tools and datasets.
  • Individual workspaces can be easily launched, allocated and destroyed.
  • Minimize deployment and maintenance effort.
