With the holidays drawing near NVIDIA would like to say a quick thank-you to all the 3DVisionLive members for sharing so many outstanding 3D images throughout the year and continuing to provide a supportive and fun environment for 3D enthusiasts. We look forward to seeing what 2014 brings to the site, and with that said, here are a few of our favorite holiday-themed images to add an extra dimension to that holiday spirit.   See stereo 3D on photos.3dvisionlive.com See...
Time to break out those 3D video cameras folks and show us your inner Peter Jackson – or Cameron or Speilberg or whichever director you admire. 3DVisionLive is pleased to announce its first ever Short-form 3D Video Contest. And don’t worry, we really don’t expect Orcs or Goblins in your video (but that would be cool). What’s a Short-form video you ask? Well, it’ simple really: short-from videos are generally defined as a video of less than 5 minutes in length – and we’re...
We’re fortunate to be able to host Elysian Fields here on 3DVisionlive for all of you. Winner of a number of accolades, including multiple “Best Animated 3D Short Film” awards, it’s hard to watch Elysian Fields and not be drawn into its world. The short was brought to us through Susan Johnston, Founder/Director of the New Media Film Festival, who was also kind enough to provide us with the following interview of Elysian Field’s creator, Ina Chavez. Enjoy! Silverlight....
If you’ve a penchant for liking superhero-themed anything and playing games in 3D, the Batman: Arkham series has been a match made in heaven. Simply put, when it comes to 3D Vision titles it just doesn’t get much better – and it’s hard to see how it could.We’re happy to report that Batman: Arkham Origins, which releases today, continues this tradition. Out of the box, Origins is rated 3D Vision Ready, so you know it’s going to look spectacular. We’ve played it quite a bit...
With sincere apologies for the delay, NVIDIA is pleased to announce the results of the Spring Photo Contest. We received more than 80 submissions from 3DVisionLive members and, for the first time, invited the membership to select the winner. The only criteria for the contest was the photos had to represent the meaning of Spring in some fashion, and be an original image created by the member that submitted it. All submitted photos were put in a gallery and ample time was...

Osteoarthritis — the wearing down of the protective cartilage between the bones — causes severe joint pain and is a leading cause of disability. Yet this common disease of the bones is one of the most difficult to detect and prevent in its early stages.

In the U.S. alone, osteoarthritis is responsible for the majority of total knee and hip replacements. The most prevalent form of the disease affects the knees, occurring in 10 percent of men and 13 percent of women over the age of 60. These numbers are only expected to grow due to aging populations and the obesity epidemic — with huge costs on public health systems and well-being.

Hoping to turn this trend around, ImageBiopsy Lab, an Austrian startup and member of our Inception program, is using deep learning to diagnose osteoarthritis of the knees much more efficiently and cost-effectively.

Better, Faster, Stronger

The progression of osteoarthritis is currently considered to be largely unstoppable. Diagnosis relies purely on the visual assessment of two-dimensional X-ray images by doctors, combined with an understanding of the patient’s background. This is a time- and resource-intensive process, which can prolong the wait for an accurate diagnosis and precise treatment plan.

No medications can cure osteoarthritis, so treatments focus on the relief of symptoms and restoring functionality. This means that the quicker and more accurate the initial diagnosis, the better osteoarthritis can be managed.

Using computer vision and deep learning algorithms, ImageBiopsy Lab is enabling doctors to gain a precise, three-dimensional understanding of two-dimensional images. The company trained its algorithms, using NVIDIA GPUs, on over 150,000 radiographs, so doctors can receive accurate measurements of the areas around the bones in the knees. The results can indicate the severity of the patient’s osteoarthritis without any further processing needed.

Dr. Michael Riedl, specialist in orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, demonstrates ImageBiopsy Lab’s IB Lab BMAx solution.

Instead of having to load the X-rays from the server and then manually assess the images, doctors receive  an automated analysis of radiographs, performed in real time, indicating the strength of the bone. With these processes automated, doctors can enjoy time savings of up to 90 percent compared to manual image grading, giving them more time to focus on diagnosis and building treatment plans. Through automatizing the initial stages, doctors can now make complete diagnoses for four times as many patients in the amount of time it currently takes to diagnose one.

Plus, with objectively measured parameters in hand, doctors can initiate clearly defined treatment pathways, which can slow the progression of the disease.

“The power of NVIDIA’s GPUs has allowed us to accelerate the training of our networks and enabled us to deploy our product much faster,” said Richard Ljuhar, CEO and co-founder of ImageBiopsy Lab.

There’s no better way to leave Las Vegas than with a big bag of loot.

We left the annual International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week with more than 20 awards for everything from our dazzling new Big Format Gaming Displays to our sophisticated NVIDIA DRIVE automotive AI platform.

The awards mirror the story we brought with us to CES: we’re transforming gaming, television and transportation, and bringing modern AI — powered by GPUs — to cars, homes and the cloud.

In the fast-growing PC gaming business, we won 10 awards alone for BFGD — which delivers silky-smooth gaming and entertainment on enormous 4K HDR screens. Our automotive business also won big, underscoring partnerships with everyone from automaker VW to ride-sharing service Uber and search giant Baidu.

Here’s our latest tally of awards from this year’s CES.
