Fujitsu and Grid Partner to Jointly Develop AI Services

Based on the new agreement, starting from April 2017 Fujitsu Limited and Grid will use ReNom to build systems for customers to use AI. 

Fujitsu Limited and Grid

Fujitsu Limited and Grid announces a partnership agreement to jointly develop AI services. The companies will combine Human Centric AI Zinrai, Fujitsu’s AI technology, with ReNom, Grid’s machine learning and deep learning framework.
“Zinrai” encapsulates the systemized AI-related knowledge and technologies Fujitsu has accumulated for over 30 years.

Now, in tandem with offering Fujitsu AI Solution Zinrai Platform Service, a platform supporting customer use of AI, Fujitsu is actively working to expand an ecosystem based on partnerships with companies that possess exceptional AI technology.

Developed by Grid, ReNom is a framework for AI development incorporating libraries with a variety of highly practical algorithms, such as deep learning algorithms, optimization algorithms, and generative models. Because ReNom makes it easy for non-experts to build AI just by combining the parts of the library required without any complex programming, the time required to build an AI system can be reduced by over 40% compared to building one with a particular objective from scratch.

Based on the new agreement, starting from April 2017 the two companies will use ReNom to build systems for customers to use AI.

Moreover, the two companies will jointly develop new services combining Zinrai and ReNom, which will become part of the Zinrai Platform Service that Fujitsu provides as both cloud and on-premises services.
In addition, with the aim of expanding their mutual business through this partnership, the two companies will also consider actively exchanging personnel to jointly promote projects with customers and to share AI-related knowledge and expertise.

The two companies will provide a variety of services that combine Grid’s machine learning and deep learning technologies and expertise with Fujitsu’s enormous customer base in Japan and comprehensive ICT capabilities, including AI. In so doing, they will contribute to the business transformation of customers in a variety of fields, including manufacturing, retail and distribution, and help them to create new businesses.
This partnership is one result of the third round of the MetaArc Venture Program, a part of Fujitsu’s open innovation initiatives, which provides opportunities for alignment between Fujitsu’s business units and startups.
