AIST Artificial Intelligence Cloud (AAIC) is a cloud-based shared platform to accelerate research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). The AAIC supports combined use of high performance computing and big data analytics technologies for our research, 1) Computing inspired by brain architecture and Neuro-computing and 2) Data-Knowledge integration. This platform is expected to contribute to technological innovation in AI and its diverse related fields by AI Research Center in AIST and our research partners and companies.
The AAIC system has the latest 400 GPUs, 4 PB storage and high performance and reliable network, as shown in the architecture diagram and specifications below. The system is available for all employees of AIST and people who have signed collaborative research contracts with AIST.
