GE and NVIDIA team up to push through artificial intelligence in healthcare
A total of 500,000 GE Healthcare imaging devices will make use of NVIDIA’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform after the two companies signed an agreement.
The 10-year NVIDIA-GE Healthcare partnership has been further enhanced as NVIDIA is working with GE Healthcare to spread its AI application in the healthcare sector, which includes the new NVIDIA-powered Revolution Frontier CT, upgrading the Vivid E95 4D Ultrasound and formulation of GE Healthcare’s Applied Intelligence analytics platform.
The use of NVIDIA’s AI computing platform will make the new CT system in the Revolution Family 2X faster in imaging processing than before. In addition, the use of NVIDIA GPUs will help the Vivid E95 4D Ultrasound System in presenting quick, accurate visualisation and quantification while streamlining workflows across the cSound imaging platform. Modules of GE Healthcare’s AI analytics platform use NVIDIA GPUs, the NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing platform and the NVIDIA GPU Cloud container registry to speed up the creation, deployment and consumption of deep learning algorithms in applications related to healthcare analytic.
Kieran Murphy, president and CEO of GE Healthcare, said: By partnering with NVIDIA, GE Healthcare will be able to deliver devices of the future – intelligent machines capable of empowering providers to improve the speed and accuracy of diagnoses for patients around the world.”
Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, said: “Our partnership with GE Healthcare brings together great expertise in medical instruments and AI to create a new generation of intelligent instruments that can dramatically improve patient care.”
Meanwhile, NVIDIA confirmed that the Tesla V100 GPU has been selected by all prominent cloud providers including Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure who are now using the Volta-based cloud services. Elsewhere, GE’s recently released Digital Industrial Evolution Index, which maps the real progress of digital transformation, presents a score of only 63.0 in a scale of 100.
