Bonsai Launches Early Access Program to Accelerate Adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Enterprises

Berkeley, CA - May 3, 2017 - Bonsai, provider of an AI platform empowering enterprises to build and deploy intelligent systems, today introduced the Bonsai Early Access Program. Through this program, Bonsai will engage enterprises across industries such as robotics, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics and energy to jointly design, build and deploy AI models using the Bonsai Platform.

Today Bonsai also announced strategic investment from Microsoft Ventures, ABB Technology Ventures, Samsung NEXT and Siemens:

“Enterprises today are actively evaluating AI for a wide range of applications. In particular, there is an increasing demand for AI models that can inject greater intelligence, in the form of control and optimization, into sophisticated, often industrial systems,” said Mark Hammond, co-founder and CEO, Bonsai. “These systems take many different forms, including robotics, factories, supply chains, logistics, warehouse operations, HVAC, oil exploration and resource planning. With the Early Access Program we announced today, we are excited to engage customers with the technology and resources necessary to accelerate the development of AI models to address their unique use cases.”

Programming AI models to improve control and enhance real-time decision support for these multidimensional, industrial systems quickly outstrips the capabilities of generic AI solutions. Most enterprises lack talent or tools that can combine an organization's subject matter expertise with complex machine learning technologies to build application specific AI models. The Bonsai Early Access Program is specifically designed to address this by providing enterprises with the technology and resources to more effectively program and manage intelligence models that will increase the automation and operational efficiency of these industrial systems.

Other key benefits to be realized from this program include:
