A Natural Conversation with AI by Groq
AI assistance can empower people to make optimal decisions, helping them do what they do, much better. A defining characteristic of these evolving solutions is that they work in real-time. They integrate almost seamlessly into a human’s workflow, assisting exactly when needed with no delay. These real-time AI assistance solutions are not feasible with most AI inference solutions. They are simply too slow.
But Groq® is the US-based AI solutions company changing this reality. We’re the creator of the LPU™ Inference Engine – the fastest of its kind – serving the real-time AI market. Our solution for inference (not training) offers 10X better speed and precision, making us the AI performance leader in the compute center. Our performance enables a greater potential for AI to bring speed to mission.
Learn more about Groq speed and scalability, our power and performance advantages, and the implications of our simple AI solutions on resources, operations, and workforce productivity.
