SAS and Nvidia cooperate in the field of artificial intelligence

SAS announced yesterday that it has entered into a partnership with Nvidia. The goal is to help customers apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) within their organization. The two companies will work closely together in the field of machine learning, computer vision and Natural Language Processing (NLP).

To this end, Nvidia’s GPUs and CUDA-X AI acceleration libraries will support core components of SAS’ AI solutions. This allows organizations to implement AI projects in concrete business processes and make them scalable.

Transformation by AI

According to Gavin Day, senior vice president of Technology at SAS, AI transforms organizations in every sector. Advanced analytics is at the heart of AI. Powerful GPUs are capable of performing millions of mathematical operations at lightning speed. This is why the SAS is partnering with Nvidia, because the company’s GPUs help to exploit the full potential of AI.

SAS and Nvidia have already announced that they are making a number of contributions to organisations in various sectors. These include healthcare, but also life sciences, manufacturing and financial services. For example, healthcare providers use object recognition, which enables them to distinguish between benign and malignant cancer cells.

Value AI

Nvidia, through Ian Buck, vice president and director of Accelerated Computing, has announced that collaboration with SAS should help customers determine the value of artificial intelligence for their organization. With Nvidia’s technology, organizations can accelerate their entire data science workflow.

The collaboration with Nvidia is part of SAS’ strategic focus on AI and machine learning. SAS has also announced that it will invest USD 1 billion (EUR 878 million) in Artificial Intelligence (AI). In the near future, the company will focus more and more on this.
