An interview with NVIDIA’s director of development in Latin America introduced us to a range of things NVIDIA does that you (probably) didn’t know. Check out!
When we talk about NVIDIA, you may soon remember the famous and powerful GPUs that gamers love so much. Yes, dedicated graphics cards for gaming are one of Nvidia’s flagships, but the company goes far beyond that. Since launching its first GPU for professional use in 2003, the company has been a pioneer in several other segments using artificial intelligence (AI).
Today, AI is everywhere, from your cell phone and smart TV or even the public transport system you use. To better understand where Nvidia has been operating in the technological world.
Fraud-free online shopping
You’ve definitely made an internet purchase using your credit card, especially during the covid -19 pandemic. Numbers reveal that thousands of bank transactions happen every day and among them, we have hundreds of frauds. Concerned about this, American Express, which handles more than eight billion transactions a year, adopted a GPU system developed by Nvidia to help detect fraud.
Through the NVIDIA TensorRT platform that runs on the NVIDIA Triton Inference Server, American Express is able to track transactions in real-time to detect potential fraud more accurately. In practice, this Nvidia system is at least 50x more efficient than a CPU-based setup.
So every time you make a purchase on the internet using your credit card, remember the importance of systems like this one from Nvidia to ensure that the transaction is carried out in the safest way possible, without giving loopholes to fraudsters.
When making an online purchase, you may have also seen a section that recommends products under the inscription “Other customers also bought this”. This even happens on Netflix, which shows other productions with the words “You might like it too” .
At some point in your life, you needed to call a service provider and came across a robot giving you options of what to do to solve your problem. Or you must have already received a telemarketing call and realized that whoever called you was a robot, since right after saying hello, the call is ended if you don’t answer.
In both situations, techniques developed from artificial intelligence were also used. Not only Nvidia but other companies in the industry have been using the Conversational AI framework which basically allows humans to interact naturally with devices, machines, and computers using audio and has offered this platform to call center companies.
This system is present in many systems around us, even in your Google Assistant, Siri, or Alexa. You ask if it’s going to rain, and the AI understands and gives you the answer instantly. In the case of telemarketing companies, you will agree that it is a pain to keep receiving numerous calls from strange numbers all day long, but for companies in the industry that need to achieve goals by the number of customers they serve, intelligent systems like this have been a hand in the wheel.
Video Conference Transcripts
The covid-19 pandemic has opened our minds to several new situations. Video conference meetings are one of them and it is no wonder that many cloud meeting platforms have emerged since then. Through them, you can talk to people from anywhere in the world, even those who speak another language.
Even the transportation systems we use today can benefit from artificial intelligence, which includes airports, train platforms, subway stations, bus terminals, and so on.
