Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA)’s cloud computing enterprise Aliyun has introduced what is described as China’s first artificial intelligence platform to help developers be able to analyze large quantities of data.

Termed DT PAI the new platform has drag-and-drop functions and will churn out forecasts of industry trends as well as user behavior. It uses Alibaba’s algorithm structure and boasts of deep learning, large-scale machine learning, and feature engineering. Alibaba’s Open Data Processing Service can handle 100PB data in 6 hours.

Xiao Wei, DT PAI product manager, said the Aliyun will roll out a free public test of the concerned service for an exclusive bunch of early users in the coming weeks. As per Aliyun, DT PAI can be implemented by connecting standardized modules and assigning the targeted parameters before application development thus not requiring traditional coding.

Wei Xiao opined that their objective was to develop a one-stop artificial intelligence development, sharing platform, publishing via data connections, data, and calculations. Earlier the artificial intelligence domain was available to only a few qualified developers and leveraged specialized tools. Such a strategy was vulnerable to redundancy and errors.

As per Wei with DT PAI developers with zero or limited experience can build a data application in a lesser amount of time. He added that what took days to finish can now be finished in minutes.

According to Wei, DTPAI has advanced and matured ML algorithms whose potency are checked by Alibaba’s different data scenarios in Alipay, Tmall or Taobao business. The service is able to handle workloads including large-scale statistics, feature abstraction, classification, and clustering.

Aliyun commented that insights produced from the platform could be deployed to daily life. Shoppers can now take a picture of a dress and be immediately routed to the item’s profile page on Taobao Marketplace, which is Alibaba’s e-commerce website.

Wei also said that regarding logistic regression, which is a kind of statistical model, the DT PAI can process data having over 10 billion dimensions of features as well as over 100 billion records.
