AI computing offerings will need datasets to attract customers.
They will be competing for AI customers with Amazon AWS (AMZN), Google Cloud (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT), trillion-dollar
companies, along with S&P Global (SPGI), Bloomberg’s alternative
data division and Snowflake (SNOW), who also use datasets to
attract new AI customers. The next company might be able to provide

are the refined gasoline which power most Artificial Intelligence

This group is

any industry. Vectospace AI algorithmically generates datasets
based on formal Natural Language Processing/Understanding (NLP/NLU)
models including OpenAI’s GPT-3, Google’s BERT along with
word2vec and other models
which were built on top of vector space applications at Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory and the US Dept. of Energy (DOE).
