Graphics card giant Nvidia has announced a tie-up with Binus University and Kinetica in establishing the first artificial intelligence (AI) research and development center in Indonesia.
Located in West Jakarta, Indonesia, Binus University aims to be the premier research and development hub for Al in Indonesia showcasing the commercial potential of GPU-accelerated deep learning applications using Nvidia’s own technology.
The launch event heard speeches of Dr. Ir Harjanto Prabowo, rector of Binus University Ir Bernard Gunawan, CEO of Bina Nusantara; Raymond Teh, vice president of sales and marketing for the Asia Pacific region at Nvidia; and Joseph Lee, vice president of Apac at Kinetica.
?Today, we stand at the beginning of the AI computing era, ignited by a new?computing model, GPU deep learning. This new model ? where deep neural networks are?trained to recognize patterns from massive amounts of data ? has proven to be unreasonably effective at solving some of the most complex problems in computer?science,? said Teh.
“In this era, software writes itself and machines learn. Soon, hundreds of billions?of devices will be infused with intelligence. AI will revolutionise every industry. NVIDIA provides the products and solutions to power this revolution.”
Kinetica is providing the accelerated database that runs on the GPU servers at the center, which is located at the university?s Anggrek Campus.
