Sunday Morning Insight: LightOn Cloud: Light Based Technology for AI on the Cloud

As some of you may know, part of the reason I am little less active on Nuit Blanche these days stems from being involved with LightOn. At LightOn, we build hardware that uses light to perform computations of interest to Machine Learning, in short, we bring light to AI

Quite simply we are building a hardware product that does random projections... for now. If you are a student of history or if you know the history of how technologies begin and thrive, it is essential for that technology to meet its eventual end users very early on. 

At LightOn, we want to get as much feedback as possible from the Machine Learning community as early as possible. And so for the past year, we have been working on integrating our technology so that it can be accessible on the web.  

Thanks to the OVH Labs program, we got one of our prototype to run in a nearby data center. On December 20th, we had our first light and it was beautiful.

Since then we have been going through our Verification and Validation (V\&V) program and started to run some algorithms on it. On Friday, we issued a press release on opening up our cloud to the Machine Learning community. If you want to be a beta user on our cluster, please register your interest here 

Forward we go !
