QL Resources’s unit Axrail unveils Southeast Asia’s first generative AI lab in Malaysia

24 Jun 2024

Axrail, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) advanced tier services partner in Malaysia, has opened Southeast Asia’s first of its kind Generative AI (Gen AI) lab to support the growing demand for AI solutions and the nation’s digital economy aspirations.

The Gen AI lab pools the expertise of AWS, Phison and Axrail in one collaborative hub.

Axrail said it showcases cutting-edge cloud solutions powered by AWS, including those built on Amazon Bedrock, alongside on-premise innovation with Phison’s innovative aiDAPTIV+ technology.

Located within Axrail’s 3,000 square foot centre of excellence (CoE) for AI solutions, the lab is designed to accelerate businesses’ AI readiness by helping them to build capabilities to extract value from data and increase operational efficiency across various functions.

“It aims to cater the evolving needs of businesses seeking a fast-tracked and scalable path to AI adoption, and positions Axrail at the forefront of delivering comprehensive, end-to-end generative AI solutions for both cloud and on-premise environments,” it said.

Axrail founder and chief executive officer Kelvin Kok said the innovative sandbox will empower businesses to reimagine operations through AI, delivering measurable outcomes and future-proofing their approach. 

“Our goal is to accelerate AI adoption, especially among Malaysian small and medium enterprises, leveraging the upcoming AWS Region in Malaysia for data residency, low latency and robust cloud services across Southeast Asia,” he said in a statement.

AWS Malaysia country manager Pete Murray highlighted that the lab offers business solutions that boost productivity and efficiency for industries like retail, manufacturing, healthcare and entertainment for SME customers of all sizes. 

“Partners like Axrail can help customers make the most of the opportunity advanced technologies like generative AI can offer business owners,” he added.

Axrail, a subsidiary of QL Resources Bhd, has a track record of helping over 50 businesses across Malaysia and Singapore.
