Nv-Wavenet: Better Speech Synthesis Using GPU-Enabled WaveNet Inference

WaveNets represent an exciting new neural network architecture used to generate raw audio waveforms, including the ability to synthesize very high quality speech. These networks have proven challenging to deploy on CPUs, as generating speech in real-time or better requires substantial computation in tight timeframes. Fortunately,…

Risky Business: Tapping AI to Assess and Limit Risk in M&A

Assessing risk is a concern in most industries, although perhaps never more so than following a merger or acquisition. It turns out AI may be just the tool to help. GPU Technology Conference attendees last month got a high-level education in how AI can bring…

Crowning Achievement: Using Adversarial Networks to Create Customized Dental Caps

It wasn’t long ago that dental crowns were produced on assembly lines, with rows of workers engaged in the physical effort of building and shaping them. To make that process faster, more precise and, ultimately, less expensive, dental product maker Glidewell Laboratories has been building…

Night of the Living Bacteria: How GPUs Aid Fight Against Zombie-Like Bugs

When health officials use words like “nightmare” and “apocalypse” to describe a problem, it’s probably time to pay attention. We’re in a war with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and we’re losing. Antibiotics that saved millions of lives in the last century are increasingly powerless against a growing…

AI-Enabled Auditors: Finding Fraud Using Deep Autoencoder Networks

Accounting fraud has long eaten into the revenue of some businesses, but auditors are enlisting a new defensive tool: artificial intelligence. A typical organization can lose 5 percent of its annual revenue to fraud, according to an estimate from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners….

It’s Training Cats and Dogs: NVIDIA Research Uses AI to Turn Cats into Dogs, Lions and Tigers, Too

It turns out a leopard can change its spots. Thanks to NVIDIA researchers’ new GPU-accelerated deep learning technique, a leopard — or at least a picture of it — can simultaneously turn into a house cat, a tiger or even a dog. It works for…

SETI: AI Helping Humanity Overcome Its Limitations

Few organizations are as bullish on AI as the SETI Institute. Best known for its ongoing search for extraterrestrial intelligence, the institute is engaged in broad range of complicated science. And for all of humanity’s natural intelligence, it’s the artificial sort that’s most likely to…
