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 number of superbugs that have evolved to survive our pharmacological Read article >

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 video, too. The ability to turn one image or video Read article >

Star Power: Why the World’s Largest Telescope Relies on GPUs

The universe’s oldest, most distant galaxies may hold clues about the future of our own. But even with the world’s largest telescope, scientists won’t be able to see those galaxies clearly without our GPUs. The European-Extremely Large Telescope, or E-ELT, will capture images 15 times sharper than the dazzling shots the Hubble telescope has beamed Read article >

Hail Yes: How Deep Learning Could Improve Forecasts for Damaging Storms

Imagine tens of thousands of golf balls falling from the sky at more than 100 mph, and you’ll get an idea of the damage hail can wreak. In just a few minutes, it can batter and ruin crops, dent cars and smash windshields, and even bash holes in houses and buildings — resulting in billions Read article >

To Infinity and Beyond: NVIDIA Research Lets VR Users Explore Vast Virtual Worlds

Virtual worlds are infinite, but your living room is not. Today, the size of physical space limits VR users’ ability to move in boundless virtual space. And VR isn’t particularly immersive if you trip over the couch. The NVIDIA Research team is collaborating with Adobe and Stony Brook University to solve the problem, and they’re Read article >
