Generative AI for Developers

Generative AI has introduced a new wave of developer tools, frameworks and applications. The vastly expanding ecosystem helps train massive multimodal models, fine-tune for use cases, quantize and deploy from data centers to the smallest embedded devices. Developers building generative AI applications need an accelerated computing platform with full-stack optimizations, from chip and systems software to acceleration libraries and application development frameworks. With NVIDIA’s leading model APIs, it’s easy to get started.

NVIDIA Full-Stack Generative AI Software Ecosystem

NVIDIA offers a full-stack accelerated computing platform purpose-built for generative AI workloads. The platform is both deep and wide, offering a combination of hardware, software, and services—all built by NVIDIA and its broad ecosystem of partners—so developers can deliver cutting-edge solutions.

Building applications for specific use cases and domains requires user-friendly APIs, efficient fine-tuning techniques, and, in the context of large language model (LLM) applications, integration with robust third-party apps, vector databases, and guardrailing systems. NVIDIA offers AI Foundation models and endpoints, including popular open-source community models such as Llama 2, Stable Diffusion, and ESM2, enabling developers to quickly build custom generative AI applications.

Our software stack powers partners like OpenAI, Cohere, Google VertexAI, and AzureML, allowing developers to use generative AI API endpoints. For domain-specific customization or augmenting applications with databases, in addition to NVIDIA NeMo™, NVIDIA’s ecosystem includes Hugging Face, LangChain, LlamaIndex, and Milvus.

To deploy safe, trustworthy models, NeMo provides simple tools for evaluating trained and fine-tuned models, including GPT and its variants. Developers can also add programmable guardrails with NeMo Guardrails to control the output of LLM applications, such as implementing controls to avoid discussing politics and tailoring responses based on user requests.

MLOps and LLMOps tools further assist in evaluating LLM models. NVIDIA NeMo can be integrated with LLMOps tools such as Weights & Biases and MLFlow. Developers can also use NVIDIA Triton™ Inference Server to analyze model performance and standardize AI model deployment.

Accelerating specific generative AI computations on compute infrastructure requires libraries and compilers that are specifically designed to address the needs of LLMs. Some of the most popular libraries include XLA, Megatron-LM, CUTLASS, CUDA®, NVIDIA® TensorRT™-LLM, RAFT, and cuDNN.

Building large-scale models often requires upwards of thousands of GPUs, and inferencing is done on multi-node, multi-GPU configurations to address memory-limited bandwidth issues. This requires software that can carefully orchestrate the different generative AI workloads on accelerated infrastructure. Some management and orchestration libraries include Kubernetes, Slurm, Nephele, and NVIDIA Base Command™.

NVIDIA-accelerated computing platforms provide the infrastructure to power these applications in the most cost-optimized way, whether they’re run in a data center, the cloud, or on local desktops and laptops. Powerful platforms and technologies include NVIDIA DGX™ platform, NVIDIA HGX™ systems, NVIDIA RTX™ systems, and NVIDIA Jetson™.
