VCA Technology have announced it has joined NVIDIA Metropolis, a program designed to nurture and bring to market a new generation of applications and solutions that make the world’s most important spaces and operations safer and more efficient with advancements in AI vision.
Being part of the Metropolis program will ensure that VCA continues to be at the forefront of AI-based analytics solutions.
VCA has recently launched a new line of deep learning based analytics, building on its years of experience in public safety, retail and traffic analytics.
Sold through its global partners, VCAcore provides outstanding performance in a range of environments. Key to its goal to provide the most cost effective solutions is the optimisation of its software with NVIDIA TensorRT which speeds up deep learning inference while reducing the runtime memory footprint for convolutional and deconv neural networks.
The inference optimisations in TensorRT help run AI models in real-time with high performance, a key requirement in edge applications like intelligent video analytics, robotics, healthcare, etc.
Running on NVIDIA GPU-accelerated servers/workstations or the NVIDIA Jetson edge AI platform, it is now possible to bring more AI computation at the edge, giving VCA Technology customers a significant increase in channels for their applications.
NVIDIA Metropolis makes it easier and more cost effective for enterprises, governments and integration partners to leverage world-class AI-enabled solutions to improve critical operational efficiency and safety problems.
The NVIDIA Metropolis ecosystem contains a large and growing breadth of partners who are investing in the most advanced AI techniques, most efficient deployment platforms, and use an enterprise-class approach to their solutions.
Partners have the opportunity to gain early access to NVIDIA platform updates to further enhance and accelerate their AI application development efforts. Further, the program offers the opportunity for partners to collaborate with experts and other AI-driven organisations.
“Joining the NVIDIA Metropolis program is a further endorsement of our AI-based developments.” said Kevin Waterhouse, MD of VCA. “Working alongside the NVIDIA team and the partners in this program will collectively provide outstanding solutions to our respective areas of interest.”
