Algorithmia has announced the release of the Algorithmia AI Layer, a solution meant to automate and speed up the process of deploying artificial intelligence and machine learning models. Algorithmia AI Layer is available in as a serverless or enterprise solution. The Serverless AI Layer allows a user to add AI/ML models and use Algorithmia’s API to host those models on Algorithmia’s cloud. The Enterprise AI Layer allows users to deploy software to a public or private cloud and then add models and utilize those models with an API call.

“Every company with an AI strategy is going to need to build their own AI layer, which would take years and cost millions of dollars, or buy one,” said Diego Oppenheimer, co-founder and CEO at Algorithmia. “Our view is that companies would rather buy a platform that works today, is supported by some of the world’s leading tech companies and AI experts, and costs a fraction of what it would take to build their own solution.”
