Bacalhau is a project started under Protocol Labs, but has now spun out into Expanso, Inc. Expanso is a leading Web3 innovator specializing in developing next generation decentralized commodity services. This case study, which includes a video presentation, describes the proceeds of this collaboration. The Bacalhau team asked Winder.AI to help them develop a new AI product designed to perform data engineering at web-scale, backed by Web3 technologies.
AI Product Development
Our friends at Expanso are at the forefront of designing the next generation of decentralized commodity IT services. They needed to push the Bacalhau project forward in order to meet their tight investment-led schedule and were struggling to find design partners that had the necessary skills to deliver.
David Aronchick, the CEO of Expanso, Inc. said that “we needed a full new platform built with APIs, CLIs, and workflow engines - as part of bacalhau.org.” Without Winder.AI’s AI product development expertise, they “were not able to move forward with our business, and launch the new project. We needed a complex combination of ML, golang, data science, API design, and distributed systems engineering” which was difficult to find.
Winder.AI’s task was to take the high level backlog and provide the necessary skills to deliver. When the priorities changed, we mutated to fulfil the new requirements. To that end, Winder.AI worked on a wide variety of tasks that helped the overall goal of pushing the project forward. David Aronchick said “we were able to move the entire project - documentation, examples, core API, and partnerships - forward much more quickly due to Winder’s help.”
One sub-project in particular stood out. Bacalhau Amplify was developed entirely by Winder.AI and delivered to a very tight schedule.
“The entire Amplify project was extremely well thought through and complete. We also loved the Airflow SDK. But everything they touched was very good.” – David Aronchick
The following video provides a full detailed description of Bacalhau Amplify, one of the products that we built for the Bacalhau project. This presentation is tailored towards the user of the product, not to someone who is interested in learning how we build products. But you should obtain an insight into how we work.
The ROI of AI Development
Bacalhau’s vision, in a world full of wasted resources, is a suite of decentralized compute primitives. Our AI development has helped to unlock shareholder value with products that provide both intellectual property and useful tools that people can use today. When asked what Winder.AI’s most unique value is, David said:
“The self-direction - I could always count on Phil and Enrico to drive their responsibilities forward with only limited oversight - they knew what our goals were and knew how to do it. They also had a very high bar for quality.”
Would David recommend Winder.AI? “Absolutely. 10 out of 10.”
