Deloitte’s Nitin Mittal on the Secrets of 'All-In' AI Success - Ep. 188
Artificial intelligence is the new electricity. The fifth industrial revolution. And companies that go all-in on AI are reaping the rewards. So how do you make that happen?
That big question — how? — is explored by Nitin Mittal, Principal at Deloitte, one of the world’s largest professional services organizations, and co-author Thomas Davenport in their new book "All-In On AI: How Smart Companies Win Big with Artificial Intelligence.”
On the latest episode of NVIDIA’s AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz speaks with Mittal, who leads Deloitte's artificial intelligence growth platform spoke about how companies across a wide variety of industries used AI to radically transform their organizations and achieve competitive advantage.
The book, from the Harvard Business Review Press, explores the importance of a company-wide commitment to AI and the role of leadership in driving the adoption and implementation of AI. Mittal emphasizes that companies must have a clear strategy and plan, and invest in the necessary technology and talent to make the most of AI.
Sequoia Capital’s Pat Grady and Sonya Huang on Generative AI - Ep. 187
In the latest episode of the NVIDIA AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz is joined by Pat Grady and Sonya Huang, partners at Sequoia Capital, to discuss their recent essay, “Generative AI: A Creative New World.”
The authors delve into the potential of generative AI to enable new forms of creativity and expression, as well as the challenges and ethical considerations of this technology. They also offer insights into the future of generative AI.
Grady and Huang emphasize the potential of generative AI to revolutionize industries such as art, design and media by allowing for the creation of unique, personalized content on a scale that would be impossible for humans to achieve alone.
They also address the importance of considering the ethical implications of the technology, including the potential for biased or harmful outputs and the need for responsible use and regulation.
Listen to the full episode to hear more about the possibilities of generative AI and the considerations to be made as this technology moves forward.
UF Provost Joe Glover on Building a Leading AI University - Ep. 186
When NVIDIA co-founder Chris Malachowsky approached University of Florida Provost Joe Glover with the offer of an AI supercomputer, he couldn't have predicted the transformative impact it would have on the university.
In just a short time, UF has become one of the top public colleges in the US and developed a groundbreaking neural network for healthcare research.
In a recent episode of NVIDIA’s AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz sat down with Joe Glover, provost and senior vice president of academic affairs at the University of Florida.
The two discussed the university’s efforts to put AI to work across all aspects of higher education, including a public-private partnership with NVIDIA that has helped transform UF into one of the leading AI universities in the country.
Just a year after the partnership was unveiled in July 2020, UF rose to number five on the US News and World Report’s list of the best public colleges in the US. The ranking was, in part a recognition of UF’s vision for infusing AI into its teaching and research.
Doing the Best They Can: EverestLabs Ensures Fewer Recyclables Go to Landfills - Ep. 184
All of us recycle. Or, at least, all of us should. Now, AI is joining the effort.
On the latest episode of the NVIDIA AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz spoke with JD Ambati, founder and CEO of EverestLabs, developer of RecycleOS, the first AI-enabled operating system for recycling.
The company reports that an average of 25-40% more waste is being recovered in recycling facilities around the world that use its tech.
Hittin’ the Sim: NVIDIA’s Matt Cragun on Conditioning Autonomous Vehicles in Simulation - Ep. 185
Training, testing and validating autonomous vehicles requires a continuous pipeline — or data factory — to introduce new scenarios and refine deep neural networks.
A key component of this process is simulation. AV developers can test a virtually limitless number of scenarios, repeatably and at scale, with high-fidelity, physically based simulation. And like much of the technology related to AI, simulation is constantly evolving and improving, getting ever nearer to closing the gap between the real and virtual worlds.
NVIDIA DRIVE Sim, built on Omniverse, provides a virtual proving ground for AV testing and validation. It’s a highly accurate simulation platform with the ability to enable groundbreaking tools, including synthetic data generation and neural reconstruction, to build digital twins of driving environments and scenarios.
Matt Cragun, senior product manager for AV simulation at NVIDIA, joined the AI Podcast to discuss the development of simulation for self-driving technology, detailing the origins and inner workings of DRIVE Sim.
He also provided a sneak peek into the frontiers researchers are exploring for this critical testing and validation technology.
WSC Sports’ Amos Bercovich on How AI Keeps the Sports Highlights Coming - Ep. 183
Doesn’t matter if you love hockey, basketball, or soccer. Thanks to the Internet, there's never been a better time to be a sports fan.
But how are all of these craveable video packages made? Editing together so many social media clips, long-form YouTube highlights and other videos from global sporting events is no easy feat.
That's where auto-magical video solutions help. And by auto-magical, of course, we mean AI-powered.
On this episode of the AI Podcast, host Noah Kravitz spoke with Amos Bercovich, algorithm group leader at WSC Sports, makers of an AI cloud platform that enables over 200 sports organizations worldwide to generate personalized and customized sports videos automatically and in real time.
Bercovich spoke about the technological highlights behind your favorite highlight reels.
