The U.S. Postal Service has selectedÂ NVIDIAÂ (Nasdaq: NVDA) to provide an artificial intelligence-based technologyÂ platform to increase the speed and accuracy of package data processing at the agency.
NVIDIAÂ said TuesdayÂ USPS will adopt company-builtÂ servers with deep learning software andÂ V100 Tensor Core graphics processing unitsÂ toÂ train AI algorithms intended for deploymentÂ to EGX computing machines at nearlyÂ 200 USPS facilities.
The agency ordered the systems through a contract with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE).
âAI is transforming multiple industries, enabling processes, accuracy and efficiency not possible before,â said Anthony Robbins, vice president of NVIDIA’s federal sector business and a 2019 Wash100 recipient.
A team of USPS and NVIDIA engineers has worked over the past several months to create AI models with the use of NGC containers,Â TensorRT software and DeepOps tools.
The new system is scheduled to reach full operational capability in the spring.
