Building the next generation of conversational AI
Character.AI is bringing to life the science-fiction dream of open-ended conversations and collaborations with computers. We are building the next generation of dialog agents; with a long-tail of applications spanning entertainment, education, general question-answering and others. Our dialog agents are powered by our own proprietary technology based on large language models, built and trained from the ground up with conversation in mind.
How they use R2
Character.AI relies on a multi-cloud architecture for training and processing requests due to the price and availability of GPUs in the cloud. The multi-cloud architecture required moving data between clouds leading to high bills. Now R2 is the glue between these clouds. Training and production data is stored in R2 and accessible by any cloud without incurring egress fees. R2 allows us to get the best prices and performance across multiple cloud providers.
No need to select a region, that is done automatically. Less expensive to export existing data into R2 from multiple clouds because of the bandwidth alliance. Works conveniently with Workers to do image resizing. No egress fees
