Take an AI Test Drive
Get a head-start on successful AI adoption
The global race to AI (artificial intelligence) is well and truly underway. No matter what industry you're in, the goal is the same: work smarter and more efficiently, not necessarily harder. While still technically difficult, more powerful tools are becoming available that make artificial intelligence technologies more accessible.
Working with industry leading partners Intel, SUSE, NetApp and Juniper, we have developed the Fujitsu DX Innovation Platform. Part of the DX Innovation Platform is the Fujitsu AI Test Drive. Our AI Test Drive provides you the unique opportunity to trial the latest, purpose-built AI infrastructure with 100% control and use of your own data for curation, ingestion and cleaning. The AI Test Drive is the result of the architects who worked on it and is based on a wide variety of reference architectures.
We can assemble the components as we need them for the respective projects and build the scenarios that are relevant for you.

Why should you try out the AI Test drive?
Building a business case is one of the biggest hurdles for data scientists looking to leverage AI. The typical infrastructure required to run AI projects is specialized and costly, making it essential to build a strong business case so that decision-makers are both confident and comfortable with the significant investment required. However, developing this business case can be challenging without access to the compute power needed to accurately determine the project’s requirements. The Fujitsu AI test drive can largely overcome this by providing state-of-the-art AI infrastructure to help you as a data scientist to understand your needs, validate and benchmark your data, and select the right AI infrastructure. You can bring your use case and benchmark against the latest AI technology or try out one of our pre-installed use cases. At the AI Test Drive you can Test different hardware options to determine which AI platform is right for you. Furthermore, you will be able to uncover dependencies and understand interoperability of components. The AI Test Drive is the result of the architects who have worked on it and is based on a wide variety of reference architectures. We are also in cooperation with eco-system partners for having AI specialists available for projects daily. As the needs associated with AI become more complex you can rely on our eco-system to close skill gaps and discuss your optimal AI platform setup with our experts. Undertaking Fujitsu’s AI test drive will give you faster time to value for your AI projects. It brings all the hardware and software together in one place to give you a simplified, fast, and secure way of accessing AI and validating theories and models to gain a head start in the global race to AI adoption.
AI is all about GPUs, or is it?
Graphics processing technology has evolved to deliver unique benefits in the world of computing. Designed for parallel processing, the GPU (graphic processing unit) is used in a wide range of applications, including graphics and video rendering. Although they’re best known for their capabilities in gaming, GPUs are becoming more popular for use in creative production and AI. Over time, also CPUs (central processing unit) and the software libraries that run on them have evolved to become much more capable for deep learning tasks. For example, through extensive software optimizations and the addition of dedicated AI hardware, such as Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost) in the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, CPU-based systems have enjoyed improvements in deep learning performance. For many applications, such as high-definition-, 3D-, and non-image-based deep learning on language, text, and time-series data, CPUs shine. CPUs can support much larger memory capacities than even the best GPUs can today for complex models or deep learning applications (e.g., 2D image detection). Besides the obvious cost advantage, there are other reasons to challenge the thinking AI = GPU. For example, CPU based systems are generally simpler and more robust, e.g., for the implementation in edge environments. GPUs have a higher power consumption and cooling requirements while CPUs are available in various proven standard systems for easy deployed in the data center and on the edge. Additionally, the commitment of Intel for developing on the oneAPI open standard helps ensure maximum code reuse across stacks and architectures and tools like OpenVINO simplify deep learning inference deployment for hundreds of pre-trained models for CPU based systems. The development of AI solutions on the AI Test Drive, such as the Fujitsu Sentiment Analyzer, show how maintaining a common workflow reduces time and cost for more experimentation and better accuracy. This is how to scale AI everywhere - partnering with a broad, open software ecosystem. Today, CPUs let you build the AI you want, where you want it, on the x86 architecture you know. Let us test your solution together on the AI Test Drive to find out what fits your individual needs.
