Dell Technologies HPC Community Event
About the Event
The COVID-19 pandemic that spread throughout the world in 2020 will be remembered for many reasons, including the rapid acceleration of digitization and automation of tasks we do every day. Video conferencing exploded overnight as entire industries shifted to work-from-home and simple digitization of webcam images was no longer enough.
NVIDIA’s Maxine video conferencing SDK helped video conferencing services build and deploy features that use state-of-the-art AI models to reduce video bandwidth by up to 90% using AI video compression along with the latest innovations from NVIDIA research including face alignment, gaze correction, real time translation, closed captioning, super resolution, and noise removal. NVIDIA’s Clara genomics SDK was rapidly deployed by research labs around the world, especially as we now realize the importance not only of COVID testing but of genomic surveillance for new variants. As call center operators struggled to enable remote workers, NVIDIA’s Jarvis multimodal conversational AI SDK was used to build intelligent chatbots. And as consumers were forced to stay out of stores, e-commerce continued to grow, with NVIDIA’s Merlin SDK helping build more accurate and high-performance recommenders at scale. Marc’s talk will discuss examples of each of these new SDKs and how they are being used by Dell customers to build and deploy GPU accelerated solutions.
