A Longmont-based company is collaborating with an artificial intelligence company to explore ways to improve AI training systems.

Headquartered in Longmont, IntelliProp provides products targeted at memory and storage companies using high-speed network fabrics. The new collaboration, announced last month, is with RISC AI, an AI systems company based in Minneapolis.

The two companies have entered into an agreement to develop programs and projects integrating RISC AI’s artificial intelligence computing with IntelliProp’s memory and storage resources, according to a release from RISC AI.

RISC AI’s unique artificial intelligence training system, ALiX, provides a non-statistical, optimal training solution in a single run, reducing the resources required for training models and improving latency.

IntelliProp’s Gen-Z fabric technology treats all connected memory and storage devices as a monolithic memory bank, improving speed and access.

According to the release, this marriage between the ALiX training method with the Gen-Z fabric technology could greatly improve AI training.

“Looking at the future requirements of the market, we are excited to partner with IntelliProp, who we believe will make a dramatic impact on the way data is managed in future data centers,” said Nathan Hayes, co-founder of RISC AI and inventor of ALiX.

They hope to support one another’s projects related to high-speed networking, like the development of optimized AI training systems. The companies will also explore potential applications for hardware-accelerated AI algorithms in those same areas.
