Getting Started

Hello! πŸ™‚ Welcome to aiXplain, your friendly AI development and deployment platform. We offer a broad marketplace of standardized AI models, and provide tools to help you create custom AI solutions. You can interface with aiXplain in three ways:πŸ₯‡SDK, πŸ₯ˆBel Esprit, and πŸ₯‰Studio.

What is aiXplain?​

aiXplain is a platform that aims to simplify AI resources, bringing together models, datasets (soon) and metrics from both academic and commercial sources. They can be selected, combined, deployed and evaluated through different tools, and all managed using a Teams-based pay-as-you go Credits system.

Discover aiXplain's ready-to-use AI Models and Metrics.

Design and deploy custom Pipelines.

Benchmark models using Data and metrics.

FineTune pre-trained models using your data.


The aiXplain SDK is an open-source toolkit (Python, Swift). It enables you to access aiXplain's assets and tools in a standardized format. See below for the available features.

Get started with Python, Swift, or API Requests.

Bel Esprit​

Bel Esprit is a Generative AI chat agent designed to simplify AI solution creation through natural language instructions. It selects AI models from aiXplain's marketplace, integrates them into deployable solutions, and offers user-friendly explanations. Bel Esprit connects users to AI specialists when further customization is needed.


Bel Esprit is currently integrated into Studio but will soon be available as a standalone application.
