Cray and Stradigi AI partner to crack the code on enterprise AI implementation

22 Oct 2018 Seattle, Montreal - Cray Inc. and Stradigi AI, a Canadian artificial intelligence (AI) solutions provider, have signed a strategic partnership to offer AI implementation solutions combining Stradigi AI's specialized data science skills with Cray's supercomputing expertise and advanced technologies. Under the partnership, Cray will bundle Stradigi AI's domain expertise with its Cray Accel AI starter kit to deliver tailored solutions for proofs-of-concept to deployment at scale. The offering delivers two necessary ingredients to successful AI adoption: access to seasoned AI data scientists and workflow experts and ownership of technology tuned to conquer AI business process implementations.

"This partnership will offer significant growth potential for both companies to serve a wide-range of industries. Together, we will give clients the capability to tackle the most demanding use cases and break through to AI's full potential for their businesses", stated Basil Bouraropoulos, CEO & Co-Founder at Stradigi AI. "We are excited to expand our footprint with Cray and help clients accelerate their digital transformation."

Headquartered in Montreal, Stradigi AI's fast-growing team is able to quickly develop configurable, scalable and secure solutions that solve real-life business problems using artificial intelligence. Stradigi AI's global clients are made up of enterprises spanning a wide-range of industries. Their strategic and research partnerships include agreements with Cossette, IVADO and the Vector Institute.

"We look forward to partnering with Stradigi AI to bring an indisputable edge to organisations that are embarking on their AI journey", stated Per Nyberg, vice president of market development, artificial intelligence and cloud at Cray. "We know that successfully going from planning, to PoC, to implementation in AI means a company must break through workflow iterations, address skills shortages, and commission significant compute power. The Cray Stradigi AI partnership is a great match for bringing these capabilities and competitive advantage to our customers."
