Aiming to boost the delivery of its Artificial Intelligence capabilities, TONOMUS, a subsidiary of NEOM, has tied up with Oracle and NVIDIA. NEOM is a $500 billion planned smart city in Tabuk Province in northwestern Saudi Arabia. The collaboration is expected to give a fillip to the delivery of "groundbreaking AI capabilities across NEOM and Saudi Arabia," said a news release.
The firms based in NEOM will be equipped with essential processing engines for each step of the AI workflow, from data processing and AI model training to simulation and large-scale deployment.
"This monumental collaboration will empower NEOM with a geographical advantage and place Saudi Arabia firmly on the map as a regional hub for the provision of AI capabilities," - Joseph Bradley, CEO of TONOMUS.
The technology is expected to benefit healthcare, manufacturing, telecommunications, and financial service sectors by reducing IT infrastructure costs, automating operations, and obtaining insights faster than ever.
"TONOMUS will benefit from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s (OCI) unmatched capability of supporting modern cloud-native applications in a secure environment.
