Arlington, Virginia and Luxembourg: Gcore — a European provider of high-performance, low-latency, international cloud and edge solutions— is pleased to announce the availability of Pienso on the Gcore Cloud Platform. Pienso is a deep learning natural language processing (NLP) software company that makes it easy for domain experts to use Large Language Models to build, train and manage AI models aligned with their organization’s own data.
