Fujifilm has become the first company in Japan to adopt the NVIDIA DGX-2 AI supercomputer for their AI development in healthcare, medical imaging, and its highly functional materials for displays. The announcement was made by NVIDIA Founder and CEO Jensen Huang at the company’s annual GTC Japan event in Tokyo.
Akira Yoda, chief digital officer of Fujifilm, said, “Fujifilm applies AI in a wide range of fields. In healthcare, multiple NVIDIA GPUs will deliver high-speed computation to develop AI supporting image diagnostics. The introduction of this supercomputer will massively increase our processing power. We expect that AI learning that once took days to complete can now be completed within hours.”
Each DGX-2 system incorporate 16 NVIDIA Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs connected via NVIDIA NVSwitch.
The systems are designed for rapid development, testing, deployment, and scaling of new deep learning models.
