Hyperbolic, the leader in Open-access AI, is partnering with Bagel, a pioneer in privacy-first AI, to launch a decentralized inference solution that dramatically improves accessibility and privacy for open-source AI developers and researchers.

Hyperbolic, a leading provider of decentralized infrastructure for AI, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Bagel, a trailblazer in developing privacy-focused protocols for secure AI model resource trading, licensing, and training.

Bagel’s mission is to accelerate the development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and address major societal challenges through improved AI applications by facilitating the seamless and secure flow of high-quality data across a permissionless network. In teaming up, Hyperbolic and Bagel aim to further democratize open access to cutting-edge AI capabilities for developers and researchers worldwide without them having to sacrifice data privacy or scalability.

Hyperbolic’s decentralized AI inference services will integrate seamlessly with Bagel’s unique privacy-preserving machine learning platform. Bagel uses advanced encryption techniques to keep data confidential, while Hyperbolic’s services enable fast and efficient processing of machine learning models across a decentralized network. By combining their expertise, Hyperbolic and Bagel are able to offer developers efficient and scalable machine learning inference that allows them to process extensive datasets swiftly and securely.

Hyperbolic’s robust decentralized AI services will significantly enhance the scalability and efficiency of our privacy-focused machine learning platform. This collaboration not only brings us closer to our goal of democratizing access to advanced AI technology but also paves the way for novel applications across a variety of privacy-sensitive sectors.

The partnership represents a material step forward in making AI more accessible, secure, and efficient for both builders and users. Users benefit from improved data privacy and security offered by Bagel’s infrastructure, which is crucial for applications requiring confidentiality and data integrity across industries like healthcare or finance. Developers, on the other hand, benefit from a robust platform that provides all the tools they need to build and deploy machine learning models more efficiently and at scale.

We are excited to collaborate with Bagel and believe that the privacy-focused machine learning platform is a strong complement to our decentralized AI inference service. This partnership aligns with our mission of democratizing access to AI services, and we look forward to solving important problems in privacy and scalability together.
