Machine Learning Platform For AI is built on the full-fledged algorithm application system of Alibaba Group, and is now serving tens of thousands of developers and enterprise users. You can quickly build services such as product recommendation, financial risk control, image identification, and voice recognition based on Machine Learning Platform For AI to implement artificial intelligence at your fingertips.

User interface

  • Users can quickly and easily build machine learning experiments using the drag-and-pull method.

  • The computing results of the entire machine learning process can be visually displayed.


Rich algorithm components

Provides more than 100 algorithm modules for regression, classification, clustering, text analysis, relationship mining, and many other models.Supports preprocessing tools and software, feature engineering, analysis systems, application areas, common machine learning algorithms, financal algorithms.

All-in-one service

Provides a one-stop service experience by helping users implement data cleansing, feature engineering, machine learning algorithms, evaluation, online prediction, and offline scheduling on the same platform.

Ultra-large scale computing framework Kunpeng

Through consistent optimization of asynchronous and parallel communication, Machine Learning Platform For AI supports high-throughput and low-latency parameter exchange, I/O of multiple types of streaming data, and Exactly Once Failover to support training tasks that involve tens of billions of features and hundreds of billions of parameter models. Backed by the rich experience accumulated through long-term support of algorithm services, Alibaba has developed an integrated algorithm system that covers the linear model, decision tree, to deep sparse model. In a large-scale sparse feature scenario, Machine Learning Platform For AI supports dynamic feature control that enables addition and removal of model features at any time, providing a powerful tool for CTR prediction scenarios such as recommendation, advertising, and searching.

Successful case - Sina Weibo

Sina Weibo is a leading social media platform in China. It has 165 million daily active users (DAUs) and 376 million monthly active users (MAUs), wherein mobile MAUs occupy as high as 92% of all MAUs. Involved data operation scenarios include, but are not limited to:


Users generate a huge amount of data on the platform every day. After data processing, tens of billions of features and hundreds of billions of sample entries may be generated. How to compute and analyze such a huge amount of data poses a great challenge for the bottom-layer computing engine.

Solution and architecture

As a part of Weibo Machine Learning Platform For AI, its Kunpeng distributed computing engine provides a sound solution for the ultra-large scale computing scenario.
