In addition, as a launch partner for AIRI (the AI-Ready Infrastructure architected by Pure Storage and NVIDIA), we can support the first responder community by applying Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to sensor networks, such as video surveillance analysis, shrinking the response time from hours to minutes or less.
