Equinix has announced that harrison.ai, a clinician-led healthcare artificial intelligence (AI) platform and NVIDIA Inception member has deployed eight NVIDIA DGX A100 systems in an Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre in Sydney.
Through this deployment, harrison.ai launched annalise.ai, a Joint Venture with I-MED Radiology Network, and successfully developed its first solution Annalise Enterprise CXR; one of the most comprehensive AI clinical decision-support solutions for chest X-rays, capable of detecting up to 124 findings.
The high-power digital infrastructure is built on Platform Equinix and the unprecedented compute density, performance and flexibility of the NVIDIA DGX A100. The universal system for AI workloads enables harrison.ai to combine its exceptional deep learning expertise with clinical experience to develop and deploy further healthcare AI solutions.
harrison.ai’s mission is to make healthcare better for one million patients around the world every day. The company is tackling some of the biggest issues causing inequitable diagnosis and treatment today with rapidly developed AI products in chest X-rays, brain CTs, all with the aim of helping clinicians make the right diagnoses faster and treat patients sooner. Using petabytes of diverse data and high-performance compute power, annalise.ai, one of the company’s joint ventures, builds solutions in the radiology sector, such as Annalise CXR, an AI tool with the capability to detect up to 124 findings on a chest X-ray. Annalise Enterprise CXR is one of the most comprehensive clinical decision support solutions available for chest X-rays.
As one of the first three global data center providers - to join the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center partner program in Asia-Pacific, EMEA and North America, Equinix is harrison.ai’s partner-of-choice for deploying the DGX A100 systems. In addition, the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Sydney and direct interconnection to other international markets via Equinix’s global footprint are key factors in the partnership, ensuring one consistent infrastructure to support customers and healthcare partners around the world.
To develop customised AI-enabled tools such as annalise CXR, harrison.ai deployed its DGX A100 systems on Platform Equinix for data analytics, scientific computing and AI development, necessary to reduce model training time and speed up the machine learning development process.
Looking ahead, harrison.ai can leverage Equinix Fabric, a software-defined interconnection service, to set up direct, on demand connections between its infrastructure and future joint venture partners. The ability to do this creates a more cost effective and secure network path for enhancing collaboration with its healthcare partners efficiently.
Aengus Tran, CEO & Co-Founder, harrison.ai said, “Equinix offers harrison.ai and its ventures access to world-class, secure hosting of our compute and data storage platforms, which is our highest technical priority as we are building AI solutions for clinicians across the world. The partnership provides us with an extremely fast and direct connection to enable hybrid cloud models as required, to move remarkably large data sets on which we train and develop our AI solutions. This digital infrastructure enables us to tackle bigger healthcare problems, from annalise.ai’s medical imaging solutions, to new AI healthcare solutions requiring more data and processing.”
