With the launch of our 3D Vision® 2 glasses, it was easy to overlook advancements being made on 3D Vision-Ready monitors. Product Manager Michael McSorley walks you through the latest and greatest developments in the display category.  Other than the obvious advantage of an increase in the maximum size for 3D Vision panels—from 24-inches to 27-inches—there are really two primary game-changing features that you should be aware of: 3D LightBoost and...
Just because you don’t have a 3D camera does not have to mean you can’t participate in 3D photography—thanks to companies such as 3Defy, which make software that you can use to transform your 2D images into stereoscopic 3D shots you can view with your 3D Vision™ hardware. The 3Defy name may already be a bit familiar to you if you frequent the site—we’ve been featuring a lot of their content on 3DVisonLive to give you a taste of what...
For the second year NVIDIA is teaming up with Premiers Plans on a 3D short film competition as part of Premiers’ 24th Angers Festival that is taking place now in France. We have created a channel  on 3D Vision Live where you can view two of the six films selected for the official competition in 3D right now.  "Miss Daisy Cutter" is an animated short film by Laen Sanches featuring "Nux Vomica" by The Veils. If Walt Disney took some...
The NVIDIA booth at CES last week in Las Vegas was overflowing with visitors for most of the show. People could get into the Tesla Model S for the first time to play with the incredible 17-inch display in the center of the dash (powered by NVIDIA). And we had two triple-screen 3D racing simulators from VRX running iRacing that drew big lines/crowds. We took along a FujiFilm W3 and snapped some 3D candids throughout the week from the booth, and a few from around the...
It’s been a thrilling first year for 3DVisionLive.com and we’d like to thank all of ours users for helping to make this site one of the most compelling places to visit to view 3D content. During the past year more than 20,000 3D images have been uploaded by 3D enthusiasts for all of us to view, share, and enjoy! As you can imagine, then, selecting a gallery of just 12 images from all of this material for our Best 3D Photos of 2011 gallery was no small feat....

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.
