harrison.ai Deploys NVIDIA Systems in Equinix


Equinix has announced that harrison.ai 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.

RBC Capital Market estimated that approximately 30% of the world’s data volume was being generated by the healthcare industry, and the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of data for healthcare will reach 36% by 2025. Realising the urgent needs to transform and future-prove their digital infrastructure to handle the exponential health data, healthcare organisations are at various stages of digital transformation and embracing AI and data analytics.

“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. By hosting our compute requirements in a secure and cost-effective way, we can quickly and efficiently deploy AI solutions worldwide, improve the standard of global healthcare and achieve our vision to impact one million lives per day.” said Aengus Tran, CEO & Co-Founder, harrison.ai.

“Australia’s healthcare and life science sector has seen collaboration and commercial partnerships surge over the past couple of years, accelerating because of the pandemic. Harrison.ai is a great example of the enormous opportunities for AI-based solutions to tackle some of the biggest challenges in healthcare. Each of these challenges is complex, multidimensional and requires critical digital infrastructure such as that deployed by harrison.ai to develop its ground-breaking innovations. Equinix will support our customers to capture these opportunities and expand capabilities to effectively respond to dynamic trends by offering reliability, safety, control and low latency with an interconnection-first strategy.” said Guy Danskine, Managing Director, Equinix Australia.
