Couchbase, Inc. the cloud database platform company, today announced the Couchbase AI Accelerate Partner Program designed to make it easier for customers to build AI-powered applications with Couchbase Capella and support integrations with the broader AI and data ecosystem. The program will provide organizations with resources to quickly integrate their platforms and tools with the industry-leading Database-as-a-Service Couchbase Capella™. This reduces friction for customers who are building and deploying models for AI-driven applications.
The new AI Accelerate Partner Program is part of Couchbase PartnerEngage, a worldwide partner program that provides organizations with access to resources, benefits, custom commercial models and relationships essential to increasing partner sales and maximizing profits. AI Accelerate provides collaboration opportunities for cloud service providers, independent software vendors, system integrators and technology partners in the Couchbase PartnerEngage ecosystem. The benefits of joining the AI Accelerate Partner Program span go-to-market (GTM), technical and enablement categories, including: • Eligibility for early access to beta programs and to the Couchbase AI roadmap • Customized, hands-on AI-focused workshops with the Couchbase pre-sales team • Accelerated path to integration with Capella, including eligibility for extended Capella trials • Access to the Couchbase PartnerEngage portal, featuring enablement assets and self-paced online training courses • Joint GTM opportunities and eligibility for a listing on the Couchbase website and other co-marketing investments
"Generative AI holds great promise for how companies build applications and the types of experiences they can deliver to their customers," said Matt McDonough, SVP of business development and strategy at Couchbase. "Couchbase has long invested in the partner ecosystem and believes in collaboration with partners, joint solutions and integrations. This allows partners to deliver the best customer experience so customers can get more insight and value from the data stored in Capella. In order to make it easier for customers to build AI-powered applications on Capella, we are partnering, building integrations and aligning with others in the ecosystem. The new AI Accelerate Partner Program will ensure that our cloud database platform is well positioned to be a key part of the rapidly emerging AI landscape." In addition, Couchbase is pleased to announce that MindsDB and Dataworkz are the first companies to join the program.
"We are witnessing a time where organizations worldwide are transforming their businesses to be more AI-centric," said Jorge Torres, co-founder and CEO of MindsDB. "At MindsDB, we empower companies to build AI applications fast by connecting their data sources to popular AI frameworks.

Together with Couchbase, we can provide valuable resources that help customers build AI-powered applications that will drive transformation."
"World-class large language models (LLMs) require state-of-the-art data, and the hardest part of building an AI application is wrangling data to make it compatible with foundation models," said Sachin Smotra, CEO at Dataworkz. "Dataworkz enables enterprises to harness the power of private or public LLMs on their own proprietary data using Retrieval Augmented Generation. The Couchbase AI Accelerate Partner Program enables Dataworkz to harness data stored in Capella and provide domain-specific up-to-date context for building AI applications in a managed environment."
In addition, Couchbase today announced it is introducing generative AI into Capella. With the launch of Capella iQ, organizations will be able to significantly enhance developer productivity and accelerate time to market for modern applications. The new capability enables developers to write SQL++ and application-level code more quickly by delivering recommended sample code.
Modern customer experiences need a flexible database platform that can power applications spanning from cloud to edge and everything in between. Couchbase's mission is to simplify how developers and architects develop, deploy and run modern applications wherever they are.

SingularityNET | August 28, 2023
Vechain and SingularityNET, industry leaders in blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) respectively, are thrilled to announce their strategic collaboration. This partnering of technical giants unites powerful emerging technologies with the potential to radically change how the global economy operates, offering powerful enterprise-grade tools to tackle challenges in the field of sustainability and traditional businesses.
In particular, the alliance holds great promise for vechain's ambitions with Boston Consulting Group, partners, collaborating on building 'ecosystems' wherein individuals and businesses are incentivised to act sustainably. SingularityNet's AI capabilities offer immense potential to enhance and improve these ecosystems, utilising AI technology to pore over data, and improve their efficacy.
Vechain and SingularityNET intend to launch joint research initiatives to fortify the efficacy of each respective platform and ingrain the pair at the heart of future digital development. The combination of these technologies can equip businesses with intelligent tools, signalling the onset of a new phase in the era of digitisation.
Dr. Ben Goertzel, the visionary CEO of SingularityNET, expressed his excitement for the massive potential of this partnership: "The last few years have taught the world that when the right AI algorithms meet the right data on sufficient processing power, magic can happen. What's even better is when the algorithms, data and processing are decentralized in deployment, ownership and control — which is exactly the sort of magic that's going to happen putting the SingularityNET ecosystem's AI algorithms together with vechain's deep and diverse enterprise data, on the joint, secure distributed processing power of the two networks. This combined power will be applicable to sustainability as one of our initial focus areas, but in the end extends across essentially all vertical markets. It's hard to overestimate the potential here."
SingularityNET is a decentralized marketpl
ace for AI algorithms. The future will be run on AI: automation is already improving more than 700 job types, lowering costs and increasing output. SingularityNET lets anyone monetize AI algorithms, allowing companies, organizations, and developers to buy and sell AI at scale.
