Nvidia Corporation more commonly referred to as Nvidia (stylized as NVIDIA, on-logo styling nVIDIA with small “n” same size as “VIDIA”; formerly stylized as nVidia on products from the mid-90s to early-mid 2000s), is an American technology company incorporated in Delaware and based in Santa Clara, California. It designs graphics processing units (GPUs) for the gaming and professional markets, as well as system on chip units (SoCs) for the mobile computing and automotive market. Its primary GPU product line, labeled “GeForce”, is in direct competition with Advanced Micro Devices’ (AMD) “Radeon” products. Nvidia expanded its presence in the gaming industry with its handheld Shield Portable, Shield Tablet, and Shield Android TV.
Recently, NVIDIA joined the COVID-19 High-Performance Computing Consortium, which brings together leaders from the US government, industry and science to accelerate the speed of developing effective methods for detecting and treating COVID-19, using the world’s most powerful high-performance computing (HPC) resources.
NVIDIA will support the researchers by providing access to 30 supercomputers with more than 400 petaflop computing performance. In addition, NVIDIA’s team of experts will join a team of experts with expertise in many key areas, including AI, supercomputing, drug research, molecular dynamics, medical imaging, and data analysis.
NVIDIA will be responsible for providing 3 resources to support the Association’s research process, including:
AI Application: NVIDIA brings expert AI knowledge to help the Association’s scientific teams process more data faster to provide better insights in less time.
Application of scientific achievements: NVIDIA will provide professional research achievements in the field of molecular biology, medical imaging, fluid dynamics, and imaging.
Optimizing computing on a large scale: NVIDIA will be responsible for optimizing the computing flow of supercomputers, in order to get the best power for research.
Besides, NVIDIA will also provide comprehensive software solutions so that AI applications can also maximize resources for research. So that’s all the thing that NVIDIA has done to fight with COVID-19, how do you feel about that let us know below.
