Everything, everywhere: From gaming to data centers to robotics transformed by AI on the NVIDIA accelerated computing platform

At Computex 2022, a yearly computer expo in Taipei, Taiwan, NVIDIA is demonstrating how accelerated computing is revolutionizing networking, data center solutions, gaming, content creation, and more. Since the early 2000s, Computex is one of the largest computer and technology trade shows in the world.

Computex 2022 takes place from May 24 to 27 in Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Halls 1 and 2, and will feature Innovative Computing, Accelerating Intelligence, Digital Resilience, Connected X-Experience, Innovations and Startups, and Sustainability. This annual technology event will continue to be a leader in the discovery of the most recent technological trends.

Manila Bulletin’s Tech News Online is covering Computex 2022 and the NVIDIA Keynote Program, both of which took place in Taiwan. Through our coverage, we discovered everything from gaming to data centers to robotics is being transformed by AI on the NVIDIA accelerated computing platform. NVIDIA will demonstrate how AI is transforming the enterprise data center, as well as the most recent products and technologies for gamers and creators.
NVIDIA emphasized the importance of confidential computing during the Keynote, which allows customers to keep data secure while it is being processed, ensuring privacy and integrity from end-to-end on shared computing services.

Ian Buck, Vice President of Accelerated Computing, acknowledges how AI is transforming large markets across Southeast Asia globally. “Data centers themselves are transforming into AI factories as companies manufacture intelligence to process every engagement, every product, every recommendation to deliver great customer experiences,” said Buck in his opening statement.

NVIDIA has made several notable AI advancements in recent years. There have been methods for creating art or animate speech, and the massive Omniverse platform is enabling all sorts of cool creations, such as this digital twin of the Earth to monitor climate change. And it’s NVIDIA’s way of emphasizing these achievements before betting big on AI’s future.

All these transformations enable NVIDIA to reimagine the data center at all levels, from hardware to software, chips to infrastructure, and systems themselves.

AI is enabling a new market for digital twins worth $150 billion, as well as a $100 billion market for cloud game streaming. All of which NVIDIA’s partners can access through NVIDIA hardware.

NVIDIA sees data centers transforming in general, as mentioned during the Media Roundtable, because AI is transforming every industry to accommodate new workloads, whether it’s training AI, running imprints using AI’s models and applications, or running digital twins for high performance computing and cloud gaming. NVIDIA’s digital road map is critical for aligning the ecosystem and their partners.

“NVIDIA has been built on a consistent flow of innovations and technology, delivered through a new GPU architecture family every two years. NVIDIA focuses on inventions that solve new challenges and open new markets. Our work in accelerated computing, AI and machine learning, edge computing, and Omniverse are examples of how NVIDIA and our partners have created unserved new markets,” says Brian Kelleher, Senior Vice President, Hardware Engineering.

NVIDIA Omniverse is an easily extensible platform for 3D design collaboration and scalable multi-GPU, real-time, true-to-reality simulation. Omniverse revolutionizes the way we create and develop as individuals and work together as teams, bringing more creative possibilities and efficiency to 3D creators, developers, and enterprises.

NVIDIA Omniverse not only accelerates complex 3D workflows, but also enables ground-breaking new ways to visualize, simulate, and code the next frontier of ideas and innovation. Integrating complex technologies such as ray tracing, AI, and compute into 3D pipelines no longer comes at a cost but brings an advantage.

These changes are critical as the world enters the robotics future, as the robotics industry is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. According to estimates, the sector could be worth up to $260 billion by 2030. Professional services robots that perform useful tasks for humans, such as cleaning, delivering, and transporting, will account for a large portion of this growth.

“We are entering the age of robotics – autonomous machines that are keenly aware of their environment and that can make smart decisions about their actions. This drive towards automation makes robotics a major new application for AI. Across industries such as manufacturing, retail, agriculture, logistics and warehouses, delivery, and healthcare, we see a clear demand for automation,” emphasized Deepu Talla, Vice President of Embedded and Edge Computing.
