TYAN GPU Servers with NVIDIA EGX Bring AI to the Edge

Today TYAN announced support for the new NVIDIA EGX platform on TYAN’s NGC-Ready Thunder SX TN76-B7102 server, providing AI computing for the edge networks. “AI has transformed every industry by enabling more accurate decisions to be made based on the massive amounts of streaming data being processed. Now we see the next opportunity for AI is erupting at the edge, “said Danny Hsu, Vice President of MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation’s TYAN Business Unit. “TYAN’s NVIDIA GPU server platforms are now NGC-Ready for Edge validated and with NVIDIA’s EGX stack and hybrid cloud partners, enables enterprises to securely and rapidly deploy and manage AI workloads from the edge to the cloud.”

Video: InfiniBand In-Network Computing Technology and Roadmap

Rich Graham from Mellanox gave this talk at the UK HPC Conference. “In-Network Computing transforms the data center interconnect to become a “distributed CPU”, and “distributed memory”, enables to overcome performance barriers and to enable faster and more scalable data analysis. HDR 200G InfiniBand In-Network Computing technology includes several elements – Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP), smart Tag Matching and rendezvoused protocol, and more. This session will discuss the InfiniBand In-Network Computing technology and performance results, as well as view to future roadmap.”

NVIDIA Jarvis AI SDK Fuses Vision, Speech, and other Sensors into One System

“The NVIDIA Jarvis SDK offers a complete workflow to build, train and deploy GPU-accelerated AI systems that can use visual cues such as gestures and gaze along with speech in context. For example lip movement can be fused with speech input to identify the active speaker. Gaze can be used to understand if the speaker is engaging the AI agent or other people in the scene. Such multi-modal fusion enables simultaneous multi-user, multi-context conversations with the AI agent that need deeper understanding of the context.”

Video: NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform Accelerates AI

Today NVIDIA announced the NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform – a high-performance, cloud-native platform that lets organizations harness rapidly streaming data from factory floors, manufacturing inspection lines and city streets to securely deliver next-generation AI, IoT and 5G-based services at scale, with low latency. “We’ve created the NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform for this world, where computing moves beyond personal and beyond the cloud to operate at planetary scale.”
