Its subsidiary Tonomus will team with Oracle and Nvidia to accelerate artificial intelligence innovation for a range of use cases by government and enterprises.
Neom has announced a collaboration with Tonomous, Oracle and Nvidia aimed at boosting the delivery of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities across Neom and Saudi Arabia.
The collaboration is designed to accelerate AI-powered innovation for a broad range of use cases by government organisations and enterprises.
Digital twin solutions
Tonomous will provide customers with direct access to Nvidia’s advanced AI, digital twin solutions that take advantage of the planned Oracle Cloud Region to be located at Neom, hosted by ZeroPoint DC hyperscale data centre and via Tonomus’ digital cloud platform.
According to Tonomous, users of its cloud management platform, which combines cloud sales and management with a user-friendly digital interface, will draw a range of benefits from the company’s collaboration with Oracle and Nvidia. In addition to curating access to the world’s top cloud service providers, the platform allows users to search for and compare a wide range of options, capabilities and costs in real time, and then purchase and manage solutions.
It also facilitates cost monitoring, resource optimisation and visibility, centralises customer management of multiple cloud assets and costs, and is an asset to finance and accounting departments in accessing information on historic and projected costs based on consumption.
“The long-standing alliance between Oracle and Nvidia complements Tonomous’ ongoing mission to build the infrastructure and ubiquitous connectivity required to enable the world’s first ecosystem of cognitive technologies,” said Joseph Bradley, CEO of Tonomous.
“This monumental collaboration will empower Neom with geographical advantage and place Saudi Arabia firmly on the map as a regional hub for the provision of AI capabilities, as well as further support Saudi Vision 2030 and the kingdom’s rapidly developing cloud market.”
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s (OCI) set of public cloud services and Nvidia’s accelerated computing stack – from GPUs and networking to software – combined with OCI’s AI cloud infrastructure of bare metal and RDMA cluster networking and storage, will provide Neom-based enterprises with a broad, easily accessible portfolio of options for AI training and deep learning inference at scale.
The availability of the globally adopted Nvidia AI platform will grant businesses that make Neom their home the benefits of essential processing engines for each step of the AI workflow, from data processing and AI model training to simulation and large-scale deployment, the company reports.
“AI and accelerated computing in the cloud enable cities around the world to improve sustainability and liveability, enhance the safety and efficiency of urban mobility, and deliver more inclusive citizen experiences,” said Jaap Zuiderveld, vice president of Emea at Nvidia.
“Nvidia software and systems on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provide an ideal platform for developers like Tonomus to build AI-forward, modern cities.”
The strategic partnership between Tonomus and Oracle has been steadily expanding since the company was named as the first tenant at ZeroPoint DC in October 2021. Tonomus is the first company to be established as a full-fledged subsidiary of Neom.
