Anvidia Exposes the “Brain of AI” to Server-Power, Palm-Sized Robots


The GTC 2021 event kicked off with quite a few new announcements in the field of artificial intelligence and communications, and yes, there were a lot of Tavers there.


NVIDIA’s GTC 2021 developer conference kicked off today (Tuesday) with a series of announcements from the graphics processor giant that is trying to be more than just a graphics processor giant. On stage (virtual, of course), the CEO of the company, Jensen Wang, revealed a number of particularly interesting developments, and some of them were also created in Israel.

NVIDIA also wants to participate in Metaverse

NVIDIA has introduced a series of innovations in Omniverse, its simulation platform that will become the key entry to what appears to be the big buzzword of the year: Metaverse. The company will now allow the development of virtual reality and augmented reality (VR and AR) tools, and for both will allow for the first time the use of Ray-Tracing technology in real time, so that developers can present much more realistic lighting. . and reflection effects.

To attract developers and users to its platform, the company has also announced a new app called Showroom, which it claims will also allow regular users to demonstrate its physical mechanism and rendering engine and showcase the company’s capabilities on the show. countryside.

As part of the Omniverse platform, Anvidia has unveiled a new project called Omniverse Avatar, which enables the development of interactive AI-based characters, and the company claims they can see, speak, and have full dialogue. The company designates these avatars for games, robotics, customer service, and more. In fact, in one of the weirdest demos we’ve seen, NVIDIA has created a little avatar that looks like a toy doll in the person of Jensen Wang, the company’s founder and CEO, with several company employees talking to he. According to the company, the character responded to Wang’s voice in real time to the questions asked. It’s hard to say at this point how credible this demo is, but it’s definitely worth watching.

Later, it also introduced a kind of kiosk of a fast food chain that communicates with customers and is capable of responding in about 2 seconds per request, and it also introduced the possibility of real-time voice translation of an announcer in a video while adjusting your lip movements so that you actually speak your voice in different languages.

NVIDIA is not only leaving the Omniverse in the gaming and virtual reality areas, but also using its ability to create advanced simulations for the automotive and robotic worlds, and introduced the Omniverse Replicator, an engine that enables the creation of synthetic information in 3D and 4D. allowing simulations of complex or dangerous situations, for example, on the road or in logistics centers, so it will be possible to train artificial intelligence in autonomous robots or autonomous vehicles. NVIDIA claims that they can produce “digital twins” of factories, humans and more, to enable these complex simulations, and demonstrated this in one of BMW’s fully digitally replicated factories.

Omniverse Replicator – Now for Autonomous Vehicles and Robots

By the way, the Omniverse did not just stop at factories, NVIDIA introduced a collaboration with Ericsson that creates a “digital twin city” to simulate the deployment of 5G antennas and allow the testing of its signals and returns for planning the deployment of the net. The company also entered a partnership with Lockheed Martin that creates a digital twin of … fires. The same simulations are supposed to be physically identical and simulate the way a fire spreads with real data, which also makes it possible to predict a spread, its effects on the environment, and hopefully also find a way to stop it.

Mellanox’s team presents a great leap forward

The new NVIDIA adapter

The company has announced the next generation of its communications components, Quantum-2, which are being developed in Israel by the Mellanox team. Acquired by the company in 2019 for $ 6.9 billion. It is a network platform designed for supercomputers, capable of adapting them to uses in the cloud. The new platform is capable of reaching 400 Gbps, which doubles the speed of the network. The new InfiniBand switch that is part of the platform comes with 57 billion transistors and 64 ports at 400 Gbps or 128 ports at 200 GBps. This is a jump of up to 5 times compared to the previous generation in terms of the number of ports available, and it allows the transfer of up to 66.5 billion facts per second. According to the company, the new capabilities will save 7% of the energy consumption of data centers and their size while, at the same time, show up to three times greater performance.

In addition, the company introduced a new platform that ran on the DPU that allows the creation of data centers in the Zero Trust, and thus, the artificial intelligence system learns the center and detects anomalies. In the event of a failure, it knows how to alert security teams and in the event of a server information leak, it is able to instruct the network to shut down the open server and reduce potential vulnerability.

In the Jetson segment, NVIDIA’s development platform, the company introduced the Jetson AGX ORIN, which contains 12 ARM cores, an Ampere graphics processor and 32GB of LPDDR5, but the size of a handheld reminiscent of NUC or streamers, capable of 6 times more Power Processing than its predecessor. The company claims that it is a processing power of a server with a GPU and that it can be combined with robots, medical equipment and autonomous machines for artificial intelligence processing purposes. The new Jetson will be available as a module and development kit in the first quarter of 2022.

The new Jetson

NVIDIA has also unveiled Drive Hyperion 8, an autonomous vehicle sensor and computing architecture that includes 12 cameras, 9 radars, a single LiDAR sensor, and 12 supersonic sensors, and is actually designed for automakers. The company claims the system is ready to hit production lines by 2024, so it is really looking forward to taking an Aryan part in the world of autonomous vehicles.

For dessert, NVIDIA announced that it will take almost everything announced today and that it is using these capabilities to build an Earth Earth digital twin called Earth 2 ..
