NVIDIA Launches GPU-Acceleration Platform for Data Science, Volvo Selects NVIDIA DRIVE

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang unveils RAPIDS to accelerate data science; highlights auto, health advancements at GPU Technology Conference in Europe.

GTC Europe, Oct. 10, 2018 – 

Big data is bigger than ever. Now, thanks to GPUs, it will be faster than ever, too.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang took the stage Wednesday in Munich to introduce RAPIDS, accelerating "big data, for big industry, for big companies, for deep learning," Huang told a packed house of more than 3,000 developers and executives gathered for the three-day GPU Technology Conference in Europe.

Already backed by Walmart, IBM, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and some two dozen other partners, the open-source GPU-acceleration platform promises 50x speedups on the NVIDIA DGX-2 AI supercomputer compared with CPU-only systems, Huang said.

The result is an invaluable tool as companies in every industry look to harness big data for a competitive edge, Huang explained as he detailed how RAPIDS will turbo-charge the work of the world's data scientists.

"We're accelerating things by 1000x in the domains we focus on," Huang said. "When we accelerate something 1000x in ten years, if your demand goes up 100 times your cost goes down by 10 times."

Over the course of a keynote packed with news and demos, Huang detailed how NVIDIA is bringing that 1000x acceleration to bear on challenges ranging from autonomous vehicles to robotics to medicine.
