Development of AI and machine learning use cases / New options for computer vision applications
Norderstedt, August 18, 2019 – Starting immediately, Lufthansa Industry Solutions is a solution advisor in the NVIDIA partner network; NVIDIA is the market leader in AI computing. As part of this collaboration, the Lufthansa subsidiary will especially advance the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning use cases for the benefit of its customers in various industries.
“The cooperation with NVIDIA allows us to offer our customers cutting-edge deep learning and computer vision solutions, which just a few years ago had been science fiction,” according to Dr. Susan Wegner, Vice President Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics at Lufthansa Industry Solutions. “High-performing edge computing provides new opportunities for computer vision applications, in particular.”
The graphics processors for computers and computer systems that were developed by the American corporation from California are used at a grand scale for applications with artificial intelligence. This allows companies to use, for example, the NVIDIA platform EGX for edge servers to execute AI applications on a secure device on site. Such usage may occur during continuous real-time streaming, as well as during data exchanges between warehouses or in IoT-networked production. At the same time, the platform contributes to reducing the amount of data that must be transmitted to the cloud.
“NVIDIA turned the graphics processor into the core of performance at the exciting intersection of virtual reality, high-performing computers and artificial intelligence,” says Alfred Manhart, Vice President Channel EMEA at NVIDIA. “We are happy to have won Lufthansa Industry Solutions, with its expert knowledge, as an important solution advisor.”
Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ participation in the partner network provides its IT consultants with access to NVIDIA training materials, support resources and technology tools, which allows the company’s customers to make even better use of its AI solutions. For example, by using AI, companies in the manufacturing sector can increase productivity and reduce waste material.
