NVIDIA In Healthcare: From Gaming To Medicine
Mostly renowned for its powerful graphics processing unit (GPU) used in the video game industry and, more recently, for crypto mining, NVIDIA is no stranger to healthcare. In fact, it has a dedicated branch to offer solutions that its computing platform can deliver in medicine.
“For over a decade we have partnered with the medical devices ecosystem to bring innovative diagnostic imaging, robotic surgery and patient monitoring devices to the market,” Kimberly Powell, Vice President of Healthcare of NVIDIA, told The Medical Futurist in an interview.
Prominently, the GPU manufacturer launched its A.I. platform, Clara in 2018 designed to augment medical imaging and genomics. It followed up a year later with a toolkit for radiologists, Clara AI, to help with the classification of images. In 2019, the tech giant also started to explore federated learning in healthcare, the privacy-focused A.I. training method.
