At the GTC 2021 Technology and Artificial Intelligence Conference, Nvidia unveiled a range of technologies, products and innovations, some of which were developed in Israel, which lay the groundwork for the development and connection of virtual worlds and “digital twins”.

At the conference, Nvidia announced a variety of new features for the Nvidia Omniverse platform, which enables the connection and construction of virtual worlds. These provide a leap forward in the capabilities of the platform, and make it possible to accelerate the evolution of the Internet into a new three-dimensional world.

So far, Universe has been downloaded by more than 70,000 independent creators, along with more than 700 companies that have chosen to use it to develop virtual worlds, including the BMW Group, Ericsson, Sony Pictures Animation and others.

The new features enable the use of real-time Ray Tracing technology for full-image virtual reality for the first time, allowing developers to create VR-enabled tools for the platform, and end users to enjoy built-in VR support. Anvidia also revealed that the Omniverse Enterprise platform is available and allows design teams around the world to work and collaborate simultaneously, in real time and in a shared virtual space – from any device.

At the conference, CEO and founder of Anvidia Jensen Wang unveiled the NVIDIA Qunatum platform, which will take supercomputing to new heights: directly to the cloud. Chai, Yokneam, Raanana, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Beer Sheva and Kiryat Gat.

“The demands of supercomputer centers and the public cloud are starting to merge,” said Gilad Shiner, senior vice president of supercomputing and communications at NVIDIA. “They must deliver the best performance possible for the next generation of supercomputing, artificial intelligence and data analytics challenges, while securely isolating workloads.”

The company also announced a new technology platform called Omniverse Avatar, which will enable the development of interactive avatars that are powered by AI (AI Enabled Avatars) and support Ray Tracing technology.

The new platform is made possible thanks to the connection between Anvidia’s technologies in the areas of natural language recognition (NLP), computer vision, simulation, recommendation technologies and more. “The era of smart virtual assistants has arrived,” Wang said.
