NVIDIA has established the NVIDIA Technology Centre Asia Pacific, the first of its kind in the region to focus on deep learning research and development (R&D).
Located at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, the centre will leverage the power of NVIDIA’s graphics processing unit (GPU) platforms to develop innovative solutions for both the private and public sectors.
NVIDIA will invest more than S$20 million (US$14.2M) in the centre over a three-year period. This will include the deployment of a broad range of NVIDIA technologies — from the NVIDIA DRIVE PX platform for automated driver assistance systems and self-piloted vehicles, to the NVIDIA Tesla platform, which powers deep learning on the world’s top 5 public clouds as well as some of the world’s fastest supercomputers.
Over the next few years, the centre will be used to develop solutions such as deep learning for Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative, intelligent video analytics, and large-scale data analytics.
“Singapore is an ideal location for our new Technology Centre because of its great ecosystem of technology partners, government investment in infrastructure, and focus on data science and data analytics,” said Marc Hamilton, Vice President of Solution Architecture and Engineering at NVIDIA.
The establishment of this centre is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board.
