Metropolis fast tracks generative AI use cases

Productize Generative AI

Generative AI brings a new class of AI that enables models to understand the world in a more open way than previous methods. These models can comprehend natural language input and can give you a richer understanding of the scene. They’re also capable of delivering zero-shot and few-shot learning inference on images and videos.

The generative AI model can be seamlessly integrated with all the microservices to create a complete, deployable application. Metropolis Microservices make it easy to connect your generative AI application to live video stream and dynamically send natural language prompts remotely through REST API Endpoints.

Build Complete Vision AI Solutions

Metropolis microservices deliver a growing suite of options that include video storage and management, AI Inference pipelines, and analytics that go beyond perception and computer vision. These capabilities help describe what’s happening, reveal patterns, and predict what might happen next—all from objects’ movements and behaviors.

Metropolis microservices for Jetson also include platform services such as system monitoring, API gateway, cloud-connectivity, and more, providing faster time to production.

Supercharge your solution with a collection of microservices and reference applications. Enable sophisticated applications such as multi-camera tracking, AI-based NVR, zero-shot learning with generative AI, and more.
