An Application Framework Optimized for Healthcare and Life Sciences Developers

NVIDIA Clara is a healthcare application framework for AI-powered imaging, genomics, and for the development and deployment of smart sensors. It includes full-stack GPU-accelerated libraries, SDKs and reference applications for developers, data scientists and researchers to create real-time, secure and scalable solutions.

NVIDIA Clara application framework is ideal for healthcare application developers working in medical imaging or genomics.

Today, GPUs are found in almost all imaging modalities, including CT, MRI, x-ray, and ultrasound - bringing compute capabilities to edge devices. With the boom of deep learning research in medical imaging, more efficient and improved approaches are being developed to enable AI-assisted workflows through GPU-enabled modalities.

With the latest release of the NVIDIA Clara application framework, developers have the necessary tools and APIs to carry out AI development, as well as introduce AI capabilities to medical devices through embedded hardware.

Collaborative Learning

Training framework includes techniques such as Federated Learning and transfer learning which enables data scientists and researchers to collaborate and build robust, generalizable AI algorithms, keeping the data private and secure.

Domain-Optimized Performance

Optimized AI training for medical imaging with Horovod based multi-GPU scaling, Automatic Mixed Precision (AMP) and smart caching mechanism.

Ease of Integration

Clara Deploy includes the necessary building blocks and reference applications that enable developers to build clinical workflows that can interface in a hospital-like environment.
