Israel’s Constellation of Startups Using NVIDIA DGX Station to Polish Their Stars

A host of startups at the GPU Technology Conference in Israel this week are showing off the extraordinary acceleration gains and efficiency the NVIDIA DGX Station provides for their deep-learning work. Companies like Cognata — which creates technology for testing autonomous vehicles in VR and won last year’s $100,000 Inception award at GTC Israel — praise DGX Station, the world’s first personal AI supercomputer, for accelerating their work up to 10x. Another startup, TRACXPOiNT, which is creating an AI-infused shopping cart, recouped the cost of purchasing its DGX Station within two months, based on what it saved in paying for using GPU instances in the cloud.
