Project Helix highlights how Dell and Nvidia support customers in the generative AI journey

The launch this week of Project Helix, a joint initiative between Dell Technologies Inc. and Nvidia Corp., signaled a new twist in the evolving saga of generative artificial intelligence.

Both companies believe that a combination of Dell’s servers with Nvidia’s newest and fastest GPUs will appeal to customers interested in leveraging AI for business results.

“The goal with Helix is to provide customers with help in generative AI wherever they are in the journey,” said Varun Chhabra (left), senior vice president of product marketing at Dell. “It’s meant to really enable the use cases and innovation that we know are coming in the enterprise. If they are taking a foundational model that’s included in the solution from Nvidia and they want to tune it with their own proprietary data, we want to help them with that.”

Chhabra spoke with theCUBE industry analysts Dave Vellante and Lisa Martin at Dell Technologies World, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. He was joined by Kari Briski (right), vice president of AI software product management at Nvidia, and they discussed the Project Helix launch and how it can help customers build AI models for business.

Acceleration through NeMo

Project Helix incorporates Nvidia NeMo, a cloud-native enterprise framework for developers to build, customize and deploy generative AI models. NeMo includes a conversation AI toolkit designed for researchers working on automatic speech recognition and text-to-speech synthesis.

“The NeMo framework has been around for a couple of years,” Briski said. “We actually accelerate and help train for every single type of AI workload. AI is just really important right now.”

For companies seeking to understand how generative AI could assist in real-world business results, Briski cited an example of how generative AI has been used within Nvidia itself.

“Each of our IT service attendants is saving seven minutes for every single ticket per day,” Briski said. “That’s a lot of tickets per day and a lot of minutes saved. It’s one small drop in an ocean of the amount productivity gains that we can get for all the different use cases for generative AI.”
