Among the companies that are being financed by SoftBank Group Corp. are SambaNova Systems, which is developing hardware and software that will run artificial intelligence applications. The company’s technology is being used to build self-driving cars. SambaNova is also developing a new type of computer chip that will be used in smartphones, according to a SoftBank press release. SambaNova has raised $676 million in Series D financing.
SoftBank Group Corp. leads $676 million Series D financing for SambaNova Systems
Founded in Palo Alto, California, SambaNova Systems develops hardware and software for artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. SambaNova’s goal is to build the world’s most advanced systems platform that runs AI applications on the edge of the data center and in the cloud. Its system includes custom chips and a software-defined hardware architecture. SambaNova’s flagship product is a cloud-based platform called Dataflow-as-a-Service that allows enterprises to tap into its AI system without having to maintain it themselves.
SambaNova’s basic offering is called the DataScale SN10-8R, which features 12 terabytes of DDR4 memory. It can be purchased outright or used as a service to be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. A DataScale system costs $10,000 per month for use, and a customer can purchase a single machine or multiple systems. The system is designed to run a variety of workloads including high performance computing, inference, training, and more.
The company claims that its technology dramatically improves the performance of AI apps. The software-defined hardware approach means that the systems can be customized to a customer’s requirements.
The company’s hardware and software are used to run artificial intelligence applications
Founded by ex-Oracle and Sun hardware executives, SambaNova Systems’ goal is to create the most advanced AI software and hardware. Its flagship product is DataScale, a reconfigurable “dataflow” architecture that delivers unprecedented accuracy and scale. Using open standards and a hardware system based on the Reconfigurable Dataflow Architecture, SambaNova provides a seamless dataflow solution for machine learning applications.
In addition to its dataflow-as-a-service, SambaNova also offers a complete AI platform that empowers organizations to deploy the most impactful AI technologies. This includes digital health, seismic analysis, and computer vision. The company’s data platform allows enterprises to innovate, test new applications, and deploy AI solutions quickly and efficiently.
SambaNova has received more than $1.1 billion in venture financing. It is now one of the most successful AI startups in the world. SambaNova is now focused on delivering an extensible AI platform that helps businesses deploy AI in days.
The company’s AI model technology eliminates the need for labor-intensive hand-labeling of images, delivering higher image quality and a more comprehensive suite of defect detection capabilities. The company’s models also reduce redundancy and improve performance and fidelity.
The company’s technology is used to build self-driving cars
GV and Intel Capital have invested in SambaNova Systems, an artificial intelligence hardware company. The company provides a comprehensive hardware platform for deep learning. Its technology is used to build self-driving cars. The company has raised $150 million in Series B investment from both GV and Intel Capital.
The company’s approach to building a new platform from scratch stems from the work of Olukotun and Christopher Re at Stanford University. It aims to build a system that is efficient and optimized for AI operations. The company has filed one patent.
The company’s technology has been tested in California, Florida, and Washington D.C. The company’s vehicles are capable of identifying objects in fractions of a second. The company’s autonomous cars are designed to respond to traffic jams, stop for obstacles on the road, and automatically adjust speed.
The company’s technology uses a mix of sensors including radar, Lidar, and Sonar. These sensors detect the range, angle, and velocity of objects in front of the car. The system also calculates the distances between the vehicle and obstacles.
Its software is used to run artificial intelligence applications
Despite the hype surrounding artificial intelligence, most companies are still struggling to implement the technology in their business. SambaNova is one of the startups that is aiming to help companies make the leap. The company, which is based in Silicon Valley, specializes in developing hardware and software for artificial intelligence applications.
SambaNova recently closed a $676 million funding round led by SoftBank Group Corp. The investment is part of the second round of SoftBank’s Vision Fund. SambaNova has also secured investments from Intel Capital, GIC, and Temasek. Among its customers, SambaNova’s AI system is being tested by the Department of Energy. Its algorithms analyze billions of data points and provide results within minutes. It has also signed contracts with several biopharma companies.
SambaNova also plans to develop a service called Dataflow-as-a-Service. It will allow enterprises to tap into its AI system without having to maintain it. The company’s flagship product is a software and hardware platform that is built to accelerate AI applications. Its tensor streaming processors have a simpler architecture than a CPU, which means they can handle the workloads associated with artificial intelligence. The processors are available on demand through the Nimbix Cloud.
