Synthetaic, Microsoft Enter Into AI Data, Cloud Partnership

Synthetaic will use Microsoft’s (Nasdaq: MSFT) cloud graphics processing unit compute resources to further develop an artificial intelligence-based image processing tool, called Rapid Automatic Image Categorization, under a five-year strategic partnership agreement.

Delafield, Wisconsin-based Synthetaic said Tuesday the RAIC platform is built on the Microsoft Azure cloud and enables users to explore large volumes of datasets through automated data labeling.

Under the partnership, Synthetaic will gain access to nearly 1 million hours of Microsoft’s cloud compute resources to explore advances in data analysis and computer vision in support of intelligence, defense and commercial applications. 

The AI company will utilize Microsoft Azure Space capabilities to develop AI tools to process static, video and geospatial imagery for national security, environmental, disaster response and sustainability missions.

This partnership allows us to combine Azure’s GPU compute and fast data storage running next to our algorithms, which enables our customers to process massive quantities of visual data into actionable insights and models in minutes,” said Corey Jaskolski, founder and CEO of Synthetaic.

We built this entire tool on Azure from day one knowing that we could count on Microsoft to take care of the cloud components so we could focus on our unique innovations,” added Jaskolski.

Synethetaic will also take part in Microsoft’s Pegasus Program, which enables startups to build innovative platforms using the latter’s products and develop AI-based technologies for customers.

“Through this partnership with Synthetaic, we are combining our latest advances in AI with their data analytics tools to help expand our understanding of our world,” said Jason Zander, executive vice president of strategic missions and technologies at Microsoft.
