Intel Worldwide and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) have teamed up to bring generative artificial intelligence (Gen AI) solutions to enterprise customers. The partnership aims to use Intel’s comprehensive AI hardware and software capabilities to deliver customized, wholly owned solutions while ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive data.
BCG uses an Intel supercomputer powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors and AI-enhanced Habana Gaud hardware accelerators. Apart from that, the company also uses production-ready hybrid cloud software.
The Intel system supports BCG’s GenAI model that delivers insights based on more than 50 years of highly confidential and proprietary data.
In addition, all AI training and inductions within BCG’s security perimeter have been completed.
“Generative AI requires a truly democratized approach that allows for a more secure and scalable option so that companies can safely leverage the technology,” said Sandra Rivera, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center and AI Group at Intel.
“Our collaboration with BCG allows us to help customers build generative AI applications that require technology optimized across the entire stack within exactly the security perimeter of their choice.”
“Generative AI is an emerging and dynamic field, which means organizations must choose the right technology to power their GenAI journey,” says Suchi Srinivasan, Managing Director and Partner at BCG. “The technology must be enterprise-grade from day one and allow for privacy, security, ease of use, and scalability. Our collaboration with Intel will enable companies to develop competitive advantages via customized GenAI solutions while carefully navigating the people, processes, and policy changes required to derive maximum value from these transformative solutions.” “
