Wipro Launches Edge Artificial Intelligence Solutions Powered by IntelAugust 13, 2019
Wipro Limited announced that it has launched three edge artificial intelligence (AI) starter solutions powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors. These starter solutions will help enterprises in the Energy & Utilities and Healthcare markets jump start their AI adoption.
Wipro will leverage Intel’s AI technology to maximize performance of the Wipro AI solutions when running on Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
The three Wipro edge AI starter solutions are:
- Pipe Sleuth, an automated anomaly detection solution designed to eliminate the need for manual review and coding of video scans of utilities pipeline infrastructure. It uses AI to automatically process video scans and identify, grade and score the overall pipe segment, using the NASSCO PACP standard. The result of the process includes a comprehensive inspection report.
- Surface Crack Detection,which uses AI to detect and label cracks in infrastructure like buildings, roads, pavement, and bridges.
- Medical Imaging, which uses AI to identify regions of interest and label abnormalities in medical X-Rays and CT scans. For example, highlighting anomalies in the lungs and labeling the ailment conditions in these images.
These solutions are designed to be customizable as per each customer’s specific needs and then integrated into their broad technology environment, thereby accelerating time-to-market and reduction in R&D costs.
“We are using Pipe Sleuth to inspect our sewer network,” said Tom Kuczynski, Vice President, Information Technology, DC Water, which provides retail water and wastewater (sewer) services to the District of Columbia and surrounding areas. “It is a very innovative solution that dramatically increases inspection productivity and significantly reduces costs while at the same time improves the overall defect detection rate. Having the option to run Pipe Sleuth on our existing Intel-based platforms was an added benefit.”
“Customers find compelling benefits by using the Intel Xeon processors they already know and trust to start their AI journey,” said Julie Choi, VP and GM of AI Products & Research Marketing, AI Product Group, Intel. “With Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, Wipro’s edge solutions will enable customers to take advantage of reduced power consumption and performance improvement.”
“Over the past four decades, Wipro’s engineering services offerings have created immense value for various global enterprises by creating innovative customer experiences, personalizing products, platforms and technologies for new markets, integrating next-generation technologies, facilitating faster time to market and ensuring global product compliance,” said Harmeet Chauhan, Senior Vice President & Global Head, Industrial and Engineering Services, Wipro Limited. “We are excited to partner with Intel to improve and enhance our AI solutions and extend their value to our customers.”
Wipro is a member of the Intel AI Builders program, an ecosystem of industry leading independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators (SIs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and enterprise end users with a shared mission to accelerate the adoption of artificial intelligence across Intel platforms.
