Databricks & NVIDIA Forge the Future of AI: Empowering Enterprises with Custom Models & Industry-wide Innovations

Databricks, a leader in unified data analytics, is at the forefront of transforming artificial intelligence (AI) industries through its strategic partnerships and innovations. At the heart of this transformation is Databricks’ collaboration with NVIDIA, a partnership that leverages NVIDIA’s powerful GPUs to empower enterprises in building custom AI models. This partnership is not just about technology; it’s about enabling businesses to own their intellectual property (IP) and compete effectively in the rapidly evolving digital landscape.

In a recent interview on CNBC’s ‘The Exchange’, Ali Ghodsi, CEO and Co-founder of Databricks, shared his insights on the company’s partnership with NVIDIA, the trends in AI industries, and how Databricks is facilitating a new era of innovation and productivity gains across various sectors.

Ghodsi highlighted the unique value proposition of their partnership with NVIDIA.

“Customers are coming to us saying we want to build our own generative AI models,” said Ghodsi. “So we have built the most number of custom AI models, and we do that on NVIDIA chips”

This collaboration is pivotal as it enables enterprises to create bespoke AI solutions that cater to their specific needs and challenges, offering them a competitive edge.

Discussing the dynamics of their partnership with NVIDIA, Ghodsi remarked: “I think they’re amazing at that particular thing. They do also many other things, but the time for AI is going to be gigantic. So there will be room for lots of players.”

This perspective underscores a shared vision for the future of AI, where collaboration and specialization play key roles in driving the industry forward.

On the topic of the evolving GPU market, Ghodsi predicted that the supply is increasing because so many vendors are coming to the market with their own variants. “We’re already seeing it when we talk to the folks that sell these,” he said.

His observations point to a future where the cost barriers to AI innovation are lowered, enabling more organizations to leverage these technologies.

Finally, Ghodsi shared insights on where AI’s impact would be most immediately felt.

“It’s already happening in customer service,” said Ghodsi. “We’re also seeing it now start affecting financial services.”

This reflects a broader trend where AI and machine learning technologies are not just theoretical concepts but are driving real, measurable changes in industries, enhancing productivity, and opening new avenues for growth and efficiency.

Through its strategic initiatives and partnerships, Databricks is not just participating in the AI revolution; it is actively shaping the future of how businesses leverage data and AI to drive innovation and maintain competitive advantage in a digital-first world.
