Machine Learning

This Wednesday, NVIDIA has announced that they have shipped their first commercial Volta-based DGX-1 system to the MGH & BWH Center for Clinical Data Science (CCDS), a Massachusetts-based research group focusing on AI and machine learning applications in healthcare. In a sense, this serves as a generational upgrade as CCDS was one of the first research institutions to receive a Pascal-based first generation DGX-1 last December. In addition, NVIDIA is shipping a DGX Station to CCDS later this month. At CCDS, these AI supercomputers will continue to be used in training deep neural networks for the purpose of evaluating medical images and scans, using Massachusetts General Hospital’s collection of phenotypic, genetics, and imaging data. In turn, this can assist doctors and medical practitioners in making...
