AI to be incorporated in existing business systems to make them smart and usable, it is critical that system developers are able to meet user needs. This also challenges system developers’ R&D capabilities. Most suppliers have made development kits available to system developers to help with their product R&D. As the world’s top CPU manufacturer, Intel is making every effort toward AI development. Aside from offering AI chips, Intel also made its open source toolkit – OpenVINO available to system developers in 2018 to help them build AI applications. WPI, as one of the four Intel IoT Solution Aggregators and the world’s No. 1 semiconductor distributor, has established a software division focusing on AI development to augment its existing hardware capabilities. By doing this, WPI hopes to integrate know-hows of different industries and help customers build ready-to-use vertical solutions with fast time-to-market to grab market opportunities.
