The Gemological Institute of America and IBM Research today announced they are partnering to develop an advanced artificial intelligence system, based on data from tens of millions of stones graded by GIA, to grade one of the diamond "4C's", clarity. The partnership is another step in GIA's move into digital transformation of its grading operations. The system, currently deployed in the NY and Carlsbad GIA labs initially focuses on the most popular sizes and cuts, but will gradually be scaled up to more sizes, shapes and qualities, the statement reads.
