Dell EMC’s AI experience zones are open to partners and customers who are looking to gain a complete understanding of AI technologies and advancements
Dell EMC, a part of Dell Technologies, in association with tech firm Intel, has opened five ‘AI experience zone’ facilities across Asia Pacific region and Japan with the aim to showcase the business advantages of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.
The experience zones will provide education on identifying, commencing and implementing AI projects.
These experience zones are operational in Bangalore (India), Sydney (Australia), Seoul (South Korea) and Singapore. In addition, the facility in Tokyo (Japan) is opening in the month of June.
Established within existing Dell EMC Customer Solution Centres, the AI experience zones are open to partners and customers who are looking to gain a complete understanding of AI technologies and advancements, along with practical, hands-on AI solutions design and deployment experience.
These zones will showcase how Dell EMC High-Performance Computing (HPC) and AI ecosystem can be leveraged to address the present business challenges and opportunities across an extensive range of industries.
As per the Digital Transformation Index by Dell Technologies, AI is one the top priorities of spending by business leaders in the APAC including Japan (APJ). As part of their digital strategy, one in two leaders are planning to invest in AI in the coming 1-3 years. On the other hand, about 95 per cent of organisations are still experiencing roadblocks related to transformation. One such roadblock is lack of in-house expertise and skill sets.
Creating new opportunities
Speaking about the development, Chris Kelly, Vice-President – Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell EMC, APJ said, “The timely adoption of AI will create new opportunities that will deliver concrete business advantages across all industries and business functions.”
“Companies looking to thrive in a data drive era need to understand that investments in AI are no longer optional – they are business critical. Whilst complex in nature, it is imperative that companies quickly start moving from theoretical AI strategies to practical deployments to stay ahead of the curve,” said Kelly.
Fostering knowledge sharing
Andrew Underwood, Chief Technology Officer, High Performance Computing & Artificial Intelligence, Dell EMC, APJ, said, “The APJ region is building intelligent organisations powered by data, with AI technology woven into their digital fabric. The Dell EMC AI Experience Zones provide a unique space where customers and our partners can explore, test out, and learn about the different physical and virtual components that make up an AI ecosystem.”
“This initiative is the focal point of our commitment to fostering knowledge sharing between CIOs, our ready team of technology experts, and industry partners to accelerate AI adoption and innovation for the region,” he added.
