7 Big Announcements Nvidia Made At SIGGRAPH 2023: New AI Chips, Software And More
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang used his keynote at the SIGGRAPH 2023 event as somewhat of a victory lap for the GPU giant, whose company has become the foundation for many generative AI applications, as the veteran semiconductor exec unveiled new chips and software capabilities to power AI, graphics and simulation workloads.
Nvidia Launches Free AI Workbench Toolkit To Customize Generative AI Models
Nvidia revealed a free toolkit that will let developers create, test and customize pre-trained generative AI models on a PC or workstation and then scale it to any data center or cloud infrastructure.
Called Nvidia AI Workbench, the toolkit provides a “simplified interface” that eliminates the busywork of “hunting through multiple online repositories for the right framework, tools and containers” that can bog down developers when fine-tuning AI models, according to Nvidia.
The toolkit simplifies AI model customization by giving developers easy access to enterprise-grade models, frameworks, software development kits and libraries from open-source repositories.
Nvidia said several AI infrastructure providers, including Dell Technologies, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HP Inc., Lambda, Lenovo and Supermicro, plan to offer Nvidia AI Workbench in the latest generation of their multi-GPU-capable desktop workstations, mobile workstations and virtual workstations.
