The cloud service provider SberCloud (part of the Sber ecosystem) was awarded the TAdviser IT PRIZE for its ML Space cloud platform in the special category, "Machine Learning: Platform of the Year." The award was presented to Fedor Prokhorov, CTO of SberCloud, at the TAdviser SummIT 2021 in Moscow.
ML Space is an end-to-end ML development and collaboration platform for DS teams to build, train, and deploy machine learning models. The platform features the traditional integrated tools for Data Science professionals, as well as pre-installed popular libraries and frameworks. ML Space allows users to expedite, optimize, and simplify model training, data preprocessing, and model deployment on the high-performance infrastructure (up to 1000+ GPUs) of the Christofari supercomputer for subsequent integration in microservices, functions, and business applications.
Over the year that the ML Space platform has been in operation, over 1 petabyte of data has been used to train models (neural networks) on the Christofari supercomputer. In addition, more than 66 million GPU minutes have been used while working with the supercomputer. An array of commercial machine learning tasks have been successfully solved using ML Space, both among Sber ecosystem companies and other SberCloud clients.
"The ML Space platform functionality and the Christofari supercomputer were used to create and train Sber's voice assistants and SberDevices products. They also helped train the world's first Russian-language GPT-3 model. Our primary mission is to democratize artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. The price of ML Space is the lowest among its competitors, both in Russia and globally. ML Space is a universal platform: it can be used by any business, regardless of niche or size. Moreover, thanks to AutoML and various possible infrastructure configurations, the ML development process can be optimized for your task. We hope that ML Space will help businesses of all sizes and capabilities experience the practical benefits and tangible economic effect from AI."
