  • How to Build a Digital Twin: Full-Design-Fidelity Visualization and Aggregation of 3D Data

    • Brain Harrison, Director of Software Product Management, NVIDIA

    Start learning how to build a digital twin in NVIDIA Omniverse. Building a digital twin is a complex process and there are multiple ways to get started. We'll walk through a generalized example of one of the most common challenges in large-scale design and digital twin projects — being able to aggregate disparate 3D datasets (i.e.g., CAD, design, animation, or simulation) from many software ecosystems, and visualize them in full-design fidelity with no data loss or model decimation. Learn how NVIDIA Omniverse’s connected and collaborative Universal Scene Description-based workflows can help unite and unlock your data, and see examples of Omniverse Connectors and understand what questions to ask to determine which are best for your workflow. Be sure to check out "How to Build a Digital Twin: Bringing in Robotics" as a follow-up session.

Intelligent Stores

Intelligent Stores

Using data from cameras and sensors, retailers are leveraging AI to reduce shrinkage, eliminate stockout, and gain visibility into customer behaviors. The same infrastructure can also power faster checkouts. Explore the many ways retailers are using AI to create intelligent stores: store simulation, asset protection, autonomous shopping, stockout and inventory management, store analytics, store operations, personalized promotions, and augmented reality experiences.

Forecasting and Inventory Management

Forecasting and Inventory Management

Using AI and predictive analytics, retailers are improving demand forecasting and inventory management. By tapping into data insights from various sources, they’re ensuring the right products are in the right store at the right time and optimizing their supply chains.​

AI in Warehouse Logistics

AI in Warehouse Logistics

Warehouse logistics is the art of optimizing, integrating, automating, and managing the flow of products in fulfillment or distribution centers. Combining NVIDIA’s AI solutions for intelligent video analytics (IVA), robotics, automation, and supply chain management leads to operational efficiency and a higher process throughput.

Warehouse robots processing orders can evaluate all variables before making decisions and adapt as situations change. With automated reporting, they can optimize routes, delivering end-to-end visibility and increased accuracy of the orders being picked, packed, and shipped.​

Recommendation and Visual Search

Recommendation and Visual Search

Understanding customer behavior has never been more critical for retailers looking to drive growth. ​AI applications powered by video analytics can give retailers the same visibility into customer behavior ​in stores as they currently have online. ​

With insights into popular aisles, dwell times, and demographics, retailers can improve merchandising and offer real-time promotions in store to increase revenue and provide a better experience. ​

For e-commerce, retailers are using NVIDIA GPU-powered machine learning and deep learning algorithms for faster, more accurate recommendation engines, which can improve revenue by 60 percent.​

Conversational AI

Retailers are personalizing customer experiences, turning consumer data into actionable insights, and improving customer service with real-time conversational AI. NVIDIA is making it possible with the NVIDIA Riva SDK, an end-to-end workflow for speech recognition and speech synthesis, language understanding, and more. Riva includes world-class automatic speech recognition (ASR) and text-to-speech (TTS) that runs in real time. The Riva custom voice feature makes it possible for any enterprise to create a unique voice for their brand, virtual assistant, or call center with only 30 minutes of data. It can be further tuned for different languages, accents, domains, vocabulary, and context.
