Bengaluru-based information technology giant Wipro Ltd has launched three edge artificial intelligence starter solutions powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the company said in a press statement today.
Wipro will leverage this technology to boost the performance of its artificial intelligence solution when running on Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the company said.
The starter solutions will help companies, like Wipro, that work in Energy and Utilities, and Healthcare markets to kick start their artificial intelligence adoption, it said.
The artificial intelligence starter solutions are customisable and then integrated in to the customer’s broad technology environment, which then in turn speeds up time-to-market and reduces research and development costs.
“We are excited to partner with Intel to improve and enhance our AI solutions and extend their value to our customers,” the statement quoted Harmeet Chauhan, senior vice president and global head of Wipro’s Industrial and Engineering services.
The three Wipro edge artificial intelligence starter solutions are “Pipe Slueth”, which is an automated anomaly detection solution that eliminates the need for manual review and coding of video scans of utilities pipeline infrastructure. “Surface Crack Detection”, which is used detect and label cracks in infrastructures such as buildings, roads, and bridges. “Medical Imaging”, which uses artificial intelligence to identify regions of interest and label abnormalities in medical X-Rays and CT scans.
“With Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, Wipro’s edge solutions will enable customers to take advantage of reduced power consumption and performance improvement,” the statement quoted Julie Choi, vice president and general manager of Artificial Intelligence Products & Research Marketing of Artificial Intelligence Group in Intel, as saying.
