Nvidia GTC 2019 – CUDA X
GTC is underway, and Nvidia is eager to show off their innovations. From the latest AI tech. They pulled a fantastic intro video showing how they work in healthcare, science applications, media and more. Even the music playing was created by AI.

Their first reveal is CUDA X, built to run on RTX, DXG, HGX, and AGX. Covering Driving, Medical Imaging, and Metropolis to name but a few. The last one being their tech for smart cities integration. A single set of libraries that creates a less fractured ecosystem for the technologies. Of course, all tuned to run on a wide range of Nvidia hardware. Putting the tools in the hands to a wider range of users and lowering the cost of deployment seems to be their end-goal.
Programmable Acceleration Domains Architecture. It just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. Again, like CUDA X, it’s a merger of all their tech, putting it all under one acronym and ethos.
