AI, GPUs, and Storage Use Cases in Healthcare
Oct 20, 2020 9:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
One area that artificial intelligence (AI) and GPUs have shown great promise is in the analysis of radiometric data such as MRI and CAT scan images to speed the detection of cancer. This medical discipline, which is known as radiometry, utilizes massive amounts of storage to hold tens or even hundreds of millions of images. The architecture of storage systems to hold these images is critical to the performance and throughput of radiometric solutions. This webinar will explore different approaches to large-scale image retention, and how these solutions can apply to other imagery-based fields beyond radiometry.
