Nvidia, GE Healthcare announce deal to bring AI platform to hospitals
Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) and GE Healthcare, a subsidiary of General Electric Co. (GE), announced a deal Sunday that will extend the companies' 10-year partnership and use Nvidia's sophisticated artificial-intelligence chips to speed up processing of health-care data. That includes the new Nvidia-powered Revolution Frontier CT system, which will process images two times faster for GE's 500,000 imaging devices worldwide. Nvidia's chips will also help speed the processing of the 50 petabytes of data that the average hospital produces annually. "Our partnership with GE Healthcare brings together great expertise in medical instruments and AI to create a new generation of intelligent instruments that can dramatically improve patient care," Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said in a statement. GE Healthcare CEO Kieran Murphy concurred: "By partnering with Nvidia, GE Healthcare will be able to deliver devices of the future -- intelligent machines capable of empowering providers to improve the speed and accuracy of diagnoses for patients around the world."
