Having recently entered its beta stage, SingularityNET is moving quickly. Its current aim is to demonstrate the early benefits of a functional AI marketplace where anybody can access and purchase AI algorithms that have historically only been available to Silicon Valley tech companies. So far, these algorithms include gene-annotation services and an AI toolset for genomic underpinning, image and emotion recognition services, object detection, and speech-recognition.
As part of the partnership, SingularityNET will conduct feasibility studies, deliver AI centric workshops, and develop algorithms which impact Domino’s business operations. Domino’s will broaden its ability to access scalable algorithms to solve some of the most pressing supply chain and logistics challenges. For SingularityNET, the partnership represents a a key milestone in its journey to bring enterprise buyers AI services through its marketplace.
Domino’s CEO, Mr Ba U Shan-Ting, added:
“We are currently in the midst of transforming our core products and our data delivery platform to bring more speed and efficiency to our customers. Our newest transformation effort is occurring in our Operations function, where we are automating significant portions of our delivery operations and consolidating our operations centres. SingularityNET’s AI algorithms and services will allow us to explore these efficiencies at scale.”
