Learning Center, A Low-Cost Way to Create Custom AI Easily with No Programming, is Now Available On-Premises
Supports the in-house development and operation of field-driven AI
Tokyo, September 1, 2021 — AI inside Inc, a provider of an AI platform, announces we have started providing “Learning Center,” a low-cost way to create custom and highly accurate AI models without programming in an on-premise environment.
“Learning Center” is an AI development service that does not require programming, with the concept of enabling everyone to develop highly accurate AI models easily. In addition to the cloud-based service, users can now complete the AI training and inference in an on-premise environment by using AI inside Cube Pro at the edge.
AI inside aims to create a society where a wide variety of valuable AI models are created in a decentralized and shared via a marketplace, and every company and organization can make use of AI. To achieve this goal, we provide users with support tools for in-house development and utilization of the field-driven AI, rather than undertaking AI model development, customization, and tuning for them.
Background in Japan
With many companies promoting digital transformation, companies are introducing AI to improve the efficiency of internal workflows. The number of companies that have already introduced AI to automate simple tasks has increased to 19.7% in FY2020 compared to 14.4% in FY2019 (*1). However, challenges in implementing AI include lack of understanding of AI, concerns about its effectiveness, high implementing costs, shortage of AI human resources, and less availability of AI services and products (*2).
When implementing AI in Japan, many companies tend to outsource the development to vendors or development companies, but nowadays it is important to do it internally. In addition, companies are facing the need to further create value and transform their business by prompting digital transformation using ICT technologies including AI. To do so, internal personnel who understand the company’s strategy and business model need to improve the workflows and develop its system. There is also a need to train personnel who can lead the digital transformation for their company.
By providing the “Learning Center” in an on-premise environment using the edge computing device “AI inside Cube Pro,” it is now possible for the personnel in charge of business departments to leverage their own data, train and infer AI models in their own internal environment that is isolated from external networks.

What you can achieve using AI on-premise
1. Utilization of AI in the internal network environment
Companies and organizations in many other industries, such as the manufacturing industry, the insurance industry, financial industry, local governments, cannot provide internal data to outside parties or upload it to the cloud due to the privacy protection and handling of confidential data. By installing the edge computing device “AI inside Cube Pro,” which allows training and inference AI, they can realize digital transformation and AI utilization with data for internal use while maintaining information security.
2. Real-time AI utilization
The advantage of edge computing is that they execute processing without going through the Internet, so there is no need to send data to the cloud and then wait for a response. By using “AI inside Cube Pro,” you can achieve real-time processing with low latency.
