In Private Preview, Snowflake announced Cortex
…a fully managed service, designed to help both business users and developers work with AI-fueled applications on the Snowflake platform.
It has a couple of purposes, depending on your role. For business analysts, it provides access to several AI tools built on Snowflake’s own custom LLMs to make it easier and faster to interact with data stored in Snowflake. For developers, it helps them build generative AI applications on top of the data stored in Snowflake, in part, taking advantage of a capability that came to Snowflake with the Streamlit acquisition last year.
FinallyFoolin commented on X that this is a BIG BIG Deal.
I think this is the minimum Snowflake needed to do…it’s kinda what their selling right.
