Intel launches enterprise generative AI company Articul8

Intel is launching a generative artificial intelligence company for enterprise customers in partnership with investment firm DigitalBridge. Called Articul8, the company will offer a full-stack generative AI (Gen AI) software platform based on data from within a company’s security perimeter. Arun Subramaniyan, previously vice president and general manager in Intel’s Data Center and AI Group, has been appointed as the CEO of Articul8.

DigitalBridge Ventures, the venture arm of DigitalBridge, is the lead investor in Articul8. The new company also garnered equity investments from Intel. Other investors in Articul8 include Fin Capital, Mindset Ventures, Communitas Capital, GiantLeap Capital, GS Futures, and Zain.

Articul8’s platform is designed for large-scale enterprise use, says Intel. Initially optimized on Intel’s hardware architectures, such as Xeon and Gaudi accelerators, the platform is compatible with various hybrid infrastructure models as well, according to the chipmaker.

Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has already deployed Articul8. Intel says the technology is being expanded to cater to enterprise clients in sectors like financial services, aerospace, semiconductors, and telecommunications.
