Artificial Intelligence R&D

What We Do

The AI R&D program at WWT is an applied research initiative focused on investigating the one to three-year horizon of the artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) space. Our experts develop, conduct and share a range of internal projects grounded in WWT's deep understanding of industry use cases.


Our people

AI R&D is an initiative formed by WWT individuals interested in the future of AI and ML. It functions as a rotational program with an Operations team and an R&D Working team composed of data scientists, data engineers and application engineers.

Our platform

Our AI R&D platform is a cloud-based containerized environment that gives us the extensibility and elasticity to develop, build and test AI/ML solutions. The platform's flexible architecture optimizes network and storage, while GPU-enabled devices provide the technical capabilities for algorithm training. ML infrastructure tools are deployed on top of the AI R&D platform to streamline workflows and automate the productionalization of projects from dataset to deployment.

Our projects

All AI R&D projects — which are developed, funded and conducted internally — are geared toward applied research that unearths scientific discoveries in the AI/ML space that are innovative, solve problems and have potential commercial application. Industry use cases and datasets — from mining, motorsports, utilities and more — power our AI R&D work.

Our output

The goal of WWT's AI R&D program is to produce reusable platform, workflow and algorithm components that can be leveraged for future AI/ML project work or as demos in our Advanced Technology Center (ATC). All projects result in a white papers made accessible to our customers and the wider AI community. Explore our latest findings below.
