A recent press release reports, “Verne Global, a provider of advanced data center solutions for high performance computing (HPC), today announced that VoiceBase, the leading provider of speech analytics for the cloud, is utilizing its HPC-optimized bare-metal infrastructure – hpcDIRECT – to accelerate the development of new artificial intelligence (AI) powered voice analytics services. California-based VoiceBase – which provides Speech Analytics services to customers including Amazon Web Services, Nasdaq and Twilio – selected Verne Global’s HPC infrastructure to speed up the training phase of deep learning neural networks, which underpins its rapidly expanding range of speech-to-text services, voice analytics and predictive analytics capabilities. This training phase – when the neutral network ‘learns’ by processing vast quantities of speech data, adjusting its algorithm and improving its accuracy as it goes – is incredibly compute intensive. By using Verne Global’s HPC-optimized data center campus in Iceland, Voicebase has witnessed a significant increase in the performance of these operations.”
The release goes on, “VoiceBase, which recently took part in an AI and HPC Field Trip to Iceland organized by Verne Global, began the hpcDIRECT platform after a rigorous trial. Leveraging Verne Global’s blueprints for bare-metal orchestration, this trial delivered immediate performance benefits. With VoiceBase planning to expand its services to include new languages and dialects, as well as to extend its predictive analytics capabilities, it quickly reached the decision to extend its R&D compute capabilities to Verne Global’s facility.”
