Dassault Systèmes launches “LLM as a Service” offering with Mistral AI

The French software publisher is making progress in generative AI. At its 3DExperience World event in Dallas last February, the company focused on artificial intelligence, indicating that many of its products would be boosted with AI without giving a date. Today, the firm announces that it has entered into a partnership with the French flagship Mistral AI to provide manufacturers “cutting-edge artificial intelligence in a trusted environment.”

In detail, the agreement translates into the launch of a new Outscale offering called “Large Language Models as a Service” (LLMaaS). It is therefore based on the publisher’s cloud infrastructure and offers customers the generative AI models marketed by Mistral AI, compliant with the strictest security and compliance standards, including SecNumCloud.

Dassault Systèmes also plans to offer generative experiences powered by LLMs. The publisher’s approximately 350,000 industrial customers will be able to access large databases from which to create personalized applications.

Mistral AI, the French guarantee for industrialists in terms of AI

“We are continuing our journey to reinvent industries globally through AI-powered virtual twins. The partnership with Mistral AI will enable us to deliver trusted generative experiences by providing a unique combination of scientific modeling, simulation and AI — including large language models — in a sovereign environment with Outscale,” said Florence Hu-Aubigny, Deputy General Manager in charge of R&D at Dassault Systèmes.

For the French start-up, this is another step into the big league. A few days ago, it announced another partnership, this time in the insurance sector, with Axa. Commenting on this agreement, Arthur Mensch, co-founder and director of the French start-up, said: “Our models are integrated into Axa’s GenAI platform, which serves nearly 150,000 users on the Microsoft Azure cloud.”.

An Axa spokesperson also told us that “for the moment, AXA teams are testing the Mistral Large and Mistral AI flagship models”. As a reminder, the Large model is considered the most efficient and more capable of handling complex tasks.
