IBM closes an agreement with Saudi Arabia and releases new open-source AI models

Tuesday saw the opening of a new tab for IBM, which revealed that it will help Saudi Arabia train an artificial intelligence system in Arabic and that it will release a family of AI models as open-source software.

International Business Machines (IBM.N.) announced on Tuesday that it will assist Saudi Arabia in training an artificial intelligence system in Arabic and that it will make a family of AI models available as open-source software.

The Armonk, New York-based company has adopted a different strategy than some of its competitors, like Microsoft (MSFT.O), opens new tabs, and others that are closely regulating their AI models and charging for access to them, in order to generate revenue from artificial intelligence. Like Facebook’s parent company, Meta Platforms (META.O.), IBM is allowing businesses to alter its “Granite” family of AI models, but instead giving them free access to the models themselves. This was announced on Wednesday.

The Granite tools are intended to expedite the completion of computer code by software engineers. In order to monetize the models, IBM provides a paid solution called Watsonx that facilitates the seamless operation of the customized models within a data center.

IBM’s approach has been to focus on earning revenue when clients truly utilize AI models, regardless of whether they were developed by IBM or not and whether they are housed in IBM’s data centers or not.

According to IBM CEO Arvind Krishna, “We believe we’re in the early days of generative AI models.”. “In the end, consumers benefit from competition. We also want to act responsibly and safely.”

Additionally, IBM announced that the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority will use Watsonx to train its “ALLaM” Arabic language model, expanding IBM’s language capabilities to include multilingual comprehension of Arabic.
