This makes it the ideal way to accelerate your deployments, POCs, and application management.

Recommender for Custom Support with NVIDIA Omniverse

Project Tokkio is an AI-powered talking kiosk reference application that leverages NVIDIA Metropolis vision AI and NVIDIA Riva speech AI technology to communicate with customers. It uses NVIDIA NeMo Megatron-Turing 530B, a state-of-the-art language model for understanding intent and NVIDIA Merlin to make meaningful recommendations. The 3D avatar is animated and visualized with Omniverse to deliver a visually stunning customer service experience—all in real-time.

At Seagate, we have deployed an intelligent edge GPU-based vision solution in our manufacturing plants to inspect the quality of our hard disk read-and-write heads. The NVIDIA EGX platform dramatically accelerates inference at the edge, allowing us to see subtle defects that human operators haven’t been able to see in the past. We expect to realize up to a 10 percent improvement in manufacturing throughput and up to 300 percent ROI from improved efficiency and better quality.

— Bruce King, Senior Principal Data Scientist, Seagate Technology

AI is fundamental to achieving precision health and must be pervasively available from the cloud to the edge and directly on medical devices. NVIDIA’s EGX enables GE Healthcare to deliver rapid [magnetic resonance (MR)] acquisition times, improves image quality, and reduces variability by embedding NVIDIA T4 GPUs directly into our medical devices—all to further our goal of improving patient outcomes. Real-time, critical-care use cases demand AI at the edge. This is why we created our Edison intelligence offering and partnered with NVIDIA to bring AI into our medical devices and Edison edge appliances—and why we are working with ACR AI-LAB to democratize AI.

— Jason Polzin, PhD, General Manager of MR Applications at GE Healthcare

Red Hat is committed to providing a consistent experience for any workload, footprint, and location, from the hybrid cloud to the edge. By combining Red Hat OpenShift and NVIDIA EGX-enabled platforms, customers can better optimize their distributed operations with a consistent, high-performance, container-centric environment.

— Chris Wright, Chief Technology Officer, Red Hat

Avitas is working to revolutionize asset integrity management through our innovative digital inspection and prediction platform. Our unique approach combines advanced analytics with autonomous inspection techniques helping our customers to provide safer, cleaner and more efficient energy solutions. NVIDIA is an important partner in helping to scale our edge capabilities with the EGX Platform.

— Jason Roe, CEO – Avitas Systems, a Baker Hughes Venture

Mellanox SmartNICs and switches provide the ideal [input/output (I/O)] connectivity for data access that scale from the edge to hyperscale data centers. The combination of high-performance, low-latency, and accelerated networking provides a new infrastructure tier of computing that is critical to efficiently access and supply the data needed to fuel the next generation of advanced AI solutions on edge platforms such as NVIDIA EGX.
