Nvidia Powers Deep Learning for Healthcare at SC16

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