NVIDIA Enables Era of Interactive Conversational AI with New Inference Software

#artificialintelligence 

NVIDIA today introduced groundbreaking inference software that developers everywhere can use to deliver conversational AI applications, slashing inference latency that until now has impeded true, interactive engagement. NVIDIA TensorRT 7 -- the seventh generation of the company's inference software development kit -- opens the door to smarter human-to-AI interactions, enabling real-time engagement with applications such as voice agents, chatbots and recommendation engines. It is estimated that there are 3.25 billion digital voice assistants being used in devices around the world, according to Juniper Research. By 2023, that number is expected to reach 8 billion, more than the world's total population. TensorRT 7 features a new deep learning compiler designed to automatically optimize and accelerate the increasingly complex recurrent and transformer-based neural networks needed for AI speech applications.
