DGX Systems Power New Era of Smart Machines for Industry

How do you safely send a human being to inspect a petroleum refinery flare stack – one that operates at hundreds of degrees and requires negotiating a high-risk vertical climb? The answer is you don’t. Yet this important work is at the heart of a $40 billion industry — one that Avitas Systems is disrupting with AI and NVIDIA DGX.

In many industries, such as oil and gas, transportation and energy, ensuring asset and facility uptime, as well as safety and regulatory compliance, is non-negotiable. Companies can spend upward of $100 million every year on industrial inspections, which in turn can drive five times that amount in maintenance costs.
