How GPUs and Deep Learning Are Fueling the Financial Industry

Milliseconds matter in the financial industry. Lightning-quick insights, executed instantly, drive profits. The key is making smart decisions faster than the competition, and it all comes down to leveraging big data. Faster analytics offer a big advantage. With conventional computing pushed to its limits, the financial industry is moving toward GPUs. Banks and investment companies are turning to NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA DGX-1, the world’s first purpose-built system for deep learning and AI accelerated analytics, and Kinetica’s GPU-accelerated, in-memory, distributed database for truly real-time analytics demands, including fraud analysis, risk management and algorithmic trading.
