The American technology company NVIDIA and the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have announced an expansion of their cooperation in innovative Deep Learning methods.
Deep Learning is the branch of research which is currently focusing on Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially in the field of pattern recognition. This requires powerful processors that enable the training of complex neuronal networks using large volumes of data. NVIDIA is a pioneer in the field of high performance acceleration processors, and the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) will be part of the NVIDIA AI Lab programme, a cutting edge research programme in innovative Deep Learning methods.
The expanded cooperation comes as a result of the existing close partnership between NVIDIA and the DFKI Deep Learning Competence Centre. DFKI was selected by NVIDIA in June 2016 as a GPU Research Centre because of its outstanding research results in the area of text, image, video, and social media analysis. NVIDIA’s goal in this collaboration is to promote the pioneering work of AI researchers at the world’s leading institutes and broaden the exchanges among the leading scientists in the area of Deep Learning.
It is hoped that the collaboration will produce AI solutions for the next generation of autonomous systems, human-robot teams, and real-time controls for Industrie 4.0.”
