IT major Wipro on Tuesday unveiled three Artificial Intelligence (AI) starter solutions using Intel Xeon chip to help global energy, utilities and healthcare enterprises adopt the new software.
“We will leverage Intel’s AI technology to maximise performance of our AI solutions when running on its Xeon scalable processors,” said the city-based software behemoth.
The software is ‘Pipe Sleuth’, an automated anomaly detection solution, designed to eliminate manual review and coding of video scans of utilities pipeline infrastructure.
‘Surface Crack Detection’ is software which uses AI to detect and label cracks in infrastructure like buildings, roads, pavement, and bridges.
‘Medical Imaging’ software, which uses AI to identify regions of interest and label abnormalities in medical X-Rays and CT scans.
“The solutions are designed as per customer’s needs and integrated into their technology environment, thereby accelerating time-to-market and reduction in research and development (R&D) costs,” said the statement.
US-based DC Water firm’s IT vice-president Tom Kuczynski said his company was using Pipe Sleuth to inspect its sewer network in the District of Columbia (DC).
The company provides retail water and waste water (sewer) services to the eastern district and in its surrounding areas.
“The Wipro software is a solution that increases inspection productivity and reduces costs while improving the overall defect detection rate,” said Kuczynski on the occasion.
Intel’s AI products group vice-president Julie Choi said customers would benefit from Xeon processors on their AI journey.
“With Xeon processors and our toolkit, our solutions will enable customers take advantage of reduced power consumption and performance improvement,a said Choi.
Wipro industrial and engineering services global head Harmeet Chauhan said the outsourcing major had generated value for global enterprises across verticals by creating customer experiences, personalised products, platforms and technologies for new markets.
“By integrating next-generation technologies, we facilitate faster time to-market- and ensure global product compliance,” added Chauhan.
