Intel Launches Enterprise GenAI Company: Articul8 

Intel and DigitalBridge, a global investment firm, launched an independent generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) company named Articul8. The platform offers enterprise customers a full-stack, vertically-optimized, secure GenAI platform. Customers have the flexibility to choose between cloud, on-premises, or hybrid deployment options. 

Articul8 offers a turnkey solution for enterprise customers looking to simplify their workflows while keeping data within the enterprise security perimeter. Articul8 is powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Gaudi accelerators. While the platform is built on Intel hardware, it does support a wide range of hybrid infrastructure alternatives. 

“With its deep AI and HPC domain knowledge and enterprise-grade GenAI deployments, Articul8 is well positioned to deliver tangible business outcomes for Intel and our broader ecosystem of customers and partners. As Intel accelerates AI everywhere, we look forward to our continued collaboration with Articul8," said Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO.

Intel technology is being used by several tech companies including Stability AI – the company behind the Stable Diffusion text-to-image model and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) - a leading global management consulting firm. One of the reasons why companies prefer using Intel technology to power their AI systems is Intel’s proven record of working with the open ecosystem and independent software vendors to scale technologies.

DigitalBridge Ventures is the lead investor in Articul8. Other investors include Fin Capital, Mindset Ventures, Communitas Capital, GiantLeap Capital, GS Futures, and Zain Group.

The diverse consortium of investors highlights the broad support and interest in Articul8. Intel and DigitalBridge will remain strategically aligned on go-to-market opportunities and collaborate on driving GenAI adoption with customers.

Articul8 has already been deployed in several industries including financial services and telecommunications, demonstrating its capability to meet enterprise needs including integration with existing tech stack and high security. 

According to Marc Ganzi, the CEO of DigitalBridge, “every global enterprise is challenged to integrate GenAI capabilities into their workflows” and Articul8 can make it easy for them to achieve this. The easy-to-deploy and scalable nature of Articul8 empowers enterprises to unlock value from their proprietary data. 

The collaboration of DigitalBridge and Intel began nearly two decades ago when DigitalBridge was still in the incubation stage at Intel. With the support of industry investment, DigitalBridge and Intel can continue their collaboration to accelerate Articul8's go-to-market strategy and scale its product offerings for the broader GenAI ecosystem.
