• Articul8 AI is set to offer comprehensive support for a full-stack generative AI platform.
  • Intel built a generative AI model on its supercomputer hardware, trained on BCG’s proprietary data to read and understand lengthy lists in multi-page documents.

Recently, Intel Corp. announced the creation of Articul8 AI, an independent company that will provide generative artificial intelligence software capabilities to enterprise clients. DigitalBridge Group Inc., a digital infrastructure investment firm, supports this initiative.

Articul8 AI, or ‘Articulate AI’ in pronunciation, is gearing up to deliver full-stack support for a generative AI platform. Intel reports that this platform guarantees the secure handling of customer data, training, and inference, whether it’s within enterprise cloud, on-premises, or hybrid deployments. Customers are empowered with the flexibility to choose the configuration of their environments, deciding on how, where, and when.

The previous collaboration between Intel and the international consulting firm Boston Consulting Group Inc. on generative AI projects served as the foundation for the new business. A generative AI foundation model trained on BCG’s proprietary data was created by Intel using its supercomputer hardware, and it can read and comprehend lengthy lists of multi-page documents.

Global chair of BCG, Rich Lesser, said, “Our collaboration began nearly two years ago while the venture was still in the incubation stage at Intel. Since then, we have deployed Articul8 products for multiple clients seeking production-ready platforms with rapid time to market.”

Building upon the insights gained from that experience, the team extended the platform to meet enterprise performance standards, catering to specialized knowledge bases with stringent security requirements in financial services, aerospace, semiconductors, and telecommunications sectors.

Arun Subramaniyan, previously serving as Vice President and General Manager in Intel’s Data Center and AI Group, is set to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer at Articul8.

Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said, “With its deep AI and [high-performance computing] domain knowledge and enterprise-grade GenAI deployments, Articul8 is well-positioned to deliver tangible business outcomes for Intel and our broader ecosystem of customers and partners. As Intel accelerates AI everywhere, we look forward to our continued collaboration with Articul8.”

This announcement comes after Intel separated its programmable chip unit into an independent entity known as the Programmable Solutions Group, with plans for an initial public offering within the next two to three years. Notably, Mobileye Global Inc., Intel’s self-driving car technology company, went public in October 2022, achieving a valuation of USD 17 billion.
