Join us for an in-person inspirational session on OpenShift AI

We would like to invite you to our in-person inspirational session on OpenShift AI, where Red Hat's AI/ML experts will guide you through an overview of how Red Hat can help you simplify the onboarding of AI/ML projects, providing an easy solution for data scientists and data engineers. 

Red Hat offers a completely open source and environment-agnostic Kubernetes-based solution that enables model development, training and operation with Red Hat OpenShift AI, formerly known as Red Hat OpenShift Data Science. Red Hat® OpenShift® AI is a flexible and scalable MLOps platform with tools to develop, deploy and manage artificial intelligence applications. Built using open source technologies, it offers reliable, operationally consistent features for teams to experiment, present models, and deliver innovative applications.
The session, which we will hold in-person in Utrecht, will include both a strategic overview and key use cases for our customers based on OpenShift Container Platform, OpenShift AI and Red Hat's certified partner ecosystem. The session is meant for our customers who are interested in learning more about OpenShift AI, and might be especially interesting for IT Operations Leaders, AppDev ITDM, Data Scientists, Data Engineers, ML Engineers and Architects.
