By: Glen DuncanAssociate Research Director, Mikhail Jaura
The NISI Group (NISI) is a start-up that specializes in the development, manufacturing, and sales of surgical and diagnostic innovations. This IDC Perspective discusses the key learnings from a deep learning infrastructure deployment case concerning the company's software and hardware solutions that support the R&D of its products and algorithms. These insights were gleaned from a one-hour group call interview conducted with YH Cheng, Head of Research and Technology.
According to Dr. Glen Duncan, associate research director, Datacenters, IDC Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ), "NISI is one of the first Asia/Pacific (AP) cases to come through demonstrating the importance of close collaboration and integration between hardware partners. It also shows the critical need for a robust AI reference infrastructure to ensure deployment success when implementing deep learning solutions."
