Nvidia Maxine Brings New AI Features To Videoconferencing

Nvidia is using the power of GPUs to bring new AI features to videoconferencing, including a new compression technology to dramatically reduce bandwidth and a new technique for aligning faces.

The chipmaker is making this possible with its new Nvidia Maxine platform, which gives developers the ability to incorporate a variety of GPU-accelerated AI features to videoconferencing.

On the compression front, Nvidia said it has developed a new AI-based compression technology that can bring bandwidth consumption down to one-tenth of what it typically is for the H.264 streaming video compression standard. It does this by analyzing key facial points of the person on camera and then using AI to reanimate certain parts of the face on the server side.

Maxine can also use AI to align each participant’s face to simulate eye contact between each user. Other capabilities include animated avatars with realistic animation based on voice and tone as well super-resolution, noise cancellation and face relighting.

In combination with Nvidia’s Jarvis platform for conversational AI, Maxine can deploy virtual assistants to take notes, create action items and answer questions in human-like voices. It can also allow multiple people to talk at once, with one speaker being heard while the other participants’ voices automatically appear as chat messages through real-time transcription.
