Intelligent Compute Platform for Medical Imaging

NVIDIA’s Clara is an open, scalable computing platform that enables developers to build and deploy medical imaging applications into hybrid (embedded, on-premise, or cloud) computing environments to create intelligent instruments and automated healthcare workflows.

The NVIDIA Clara SDK is a software development kit that provides NVIDIA’s technology and expertise in Artificial Intelligence, visualization, and high-performance computing at all levels of the technology stack from GPUs to accelerated libraries to healthcare specific containers. A Clara developer can engage with the SDK at any level to create world class applications that can be scaled in a customer’s environment.

Clara AGX is the world’s first AI computer for autonomous medical instruments. AGX is NVIDIA’s family of systems for autonomous machines. Clara AGX is remarkable because it has 6 different accelerators - a Volta GPU, an ARM CPU, a deep learning acceleration engine, a programmable vision accelerator, a video processing engine, and an image signal processor. The Clara AGX architecture the same underlying chip used by Drive AGX Pegasus, the NVIDIA platform for autonomous vehicles.

The Clara platform aims to bring the technological advances that have been proven in other industries, like gaming, autonomous vehicles, and cloud computing, to the medical imaging industry.
