Cerebras Systems and Aleph Alpha have entered an agreement to develop sovereign artificial intelligence (AI) solutions, first focusing on creating generative AI models that are trained to a high degree of accuracy. This will be done alongside BWI GmBH, the German public IT services provider owned by the country's Ministry of Defence, and will be used by the German Armed Forces.

“This partnership with Cerebras marks Aleph Alpha’s commitment to building a new class of compute-efficient AI models that are sovereign and trustworthy for use by governments and citizens,” said Jonas Andrulis, founder and CEO of Aleph Alpha. “We chose Cerebras because of their world-class AI expertise and peerless wafer-scale technology that enables us to train state-of-the-art AI models with high efficiency.”

“We are honored that Aleph Alpha selected us to advance state-of-the-art AI using our industry-leading hardware and ML expertise,” said Andrew Feldman, CEO of Cerebras. “With Aleph Alpha’s impressive track record of creating sovereign and secure AI solutions, we believe this new partnership will produce a new class of AI model architectures that governments and enterprises worldwide can benefit from, in a safe and secure way.”
