The 2023 Gartner report, A CTO’s Guide to the Generative AI Technology Landscape, recognizes Seldon Technologies as a Sample Vendor. Seldon is listed as a Sample Vendor in the GenAI market.
What is Generative AI?
According to Gartner, “Generative AI (GenAI) learns from previous existing training data like images, videos, or text to generate new content with similar yet unique characteristics. It can generate a wide variety of novel content at scale including: images, music, written text, software code, and product designs.
Generative AI uses a number of techniques that continue to evolve. Foremost are AI foundation models, which are trained on a broad set of unlabeled data that can be used for different tasks, with additional fine-tuning. Complex math and enormous computing power are required to create these trained models, but they are, in essence, prediction algorithms.”
Today, generative AI most commonly creates content in response to natural language requests–it doesn’t require knowledge of or entering code–but the enterprise use cases are numerous and include innovations in drug and chip design and material science development.”
Why should you be paying attention to GenAI?
There’s a lot of hype flying around about Generative AI and LLMs. Generative AI and LLMs are definitely buzzwords, but it’s clear these are potentially game-changing technologies.
Through leveraging LLMs, organizations can automate typical human tasks accurately, at scale and in a personalized way. However, vendors must also be taking risk and trust in technology incredibly seriously.
What is the GenAI technology Landscape?

The GenAI technology landscape is made up of four key layers which include applications, engineering tools, models, and infrastructure. As organizations move through different stages of AI maturity, they need different solutions to be able to customize, automate, and govern their applications.
GenAI applications are quickly becoming popular as more and more organizations incorporate GenAI into their operations and offerings. Over 80% of enterprises will have utilized GenAI APIs, models, and/or launched generative AI-powered applications by the year 2026.
What are GenAI Engineering Tools?
GenAI engineering tools help enterprises deploy models quickly while striking the balance between governance and time to market. These tools can be split into two main types: model-centric and data-centric.
When Should Organizations Implement Model Deployment Tools?

Enterprises usually start to need dedicated model deployment tools once they reach an intermediate level of AI maturity. Some signs that an enterprise is ready to use model deployment tools are when the number of models, model complexity, and capacity requirements increase while working with a cross-functional team.
It’s also important to consider dedicated model deployment tools when concerns around model governance and reproducibility begin to arise. Enterprises who are at earlier stages of AI maturity, may be able to delay implementing model deployment tools for a while.
But at intermediate maturity, the limitations become apparent quickly, and the benefits of MLOps deployment tools start to outweigh their overhead. The tools then become critical for enterprises looking to scale and advance their AI maturity level.
