Nvidia Powers Deep Learning for Healthcare at SC16

abdulIn this video from SC16, Abdul Hamid Al Halabi from Nvidia describes how the company is accelerating Deep Learning for Healthcare.

Deep Learning is transforming the world of healthcare. From Electronic Health Records (EHR) to wearables, every year the flood of heterogeneous healthcare data increases exponentially. Deep learning has the power to unlock the potential within this data.

Harnessing the power of GPUs, healthcare and medical researchers are able to design and train more sophisticated neural networks—networks that can accelerate high-throughput screening for drug discovery, guide pre-operative strategies, or work in conjunction with traditional techniques and apparatus to detect invasive cancer cells in real-time during surgery.


In this video, Abdul demonstrates Nvidia’s DIGITS GPU Training System for Healthcare.

“The NVIDIA Deep Learning GPU Training System (DIGITS) puts the power of deep learning into the hands of engineers and data scientists. DIGITS can be used to rapidly train the highly accurate deep neural network (DNNs) for image classification, segmentation and object detection tasks. DIGITS simplifies common deep learning tasks such as managing data, designing and training neural networks on multi-GPU systems, monitoring performance in real time with advanced visualizations, and selecting the best performing model from the results browser for deployment. DIGITS is completely interactive so that data scientists can focus on designing and training networks rather than programming and debugging.”
