概要

Top rule

IBM と H2O.ai 社のコラボレーションにより、Driverless AI を IBM から直接発注できます。

H2O Driverless AI は、拡張予測分析モデルの迅速な開発およびデプロイメントのための高性能の GPU 対応のソフトウェア・アプリケーションです。この製品は、アルゴリズム選択ならびにモデルのビルドおよび調整の大部分のプロセスを自動化することで、機械学習に新規参入する際の障壁を下げます。Driverless AI は、機械学習解釈能力を使用して、モデルについての分かりやすい可視化および解説を生成します。これらは、規制された業界で特に役立ちます。

Driverless AI は、プレーン・テキスト・ソースから表データを読み取り、共通回帰アプリケーション、二項分類アプリケーション、および多項分類アプリケーション (デフォルト時損失率、デフォルトの発生可能性、カスタマー・チャーン、キャンペーン応答、詐欺検出、マネー・ロンダリング対策、および予測資産保全モデルを含む) を対象にすることができます。

Product positioning

Top rule

Driverless AI is a good starting point for machine learning. It helps you increase productivity and reduce dependency on data scientists for machine learning. It is also optimized for Power Systems for accelerated data ingest, feature engineering, and training times. With explainability, Driverless AI is ideal for regulated industries.

As clients embark on their AI journeys, they typically start off with machine learning before undertaking deep learning projects. Driverless AI facilitates the on-boarding for machine learning and complements the deep learning-based PowerAI portfolio, which is the natural growth path for clients' evolution into deep learning.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
