Siemens, a leader in industrial automation, and NVIDIA, a frontrunner in artificial intelligence, have teamed up to direct a new era of the industrial metaverse. The first step in their partnership is to join the Siemens Xcelerator and NVIDIA Omniverse, a 3D platform, to facilitate various features for companies to integrate digital twins and AI.
The compatibility between digital twins a term that refers to constructing a digital replication of a physical object and AI should offer companies more confidence to make conclusions over a product’s lifecycle. This merging will also boost productivity and process modifications centered around IoT and analytics.
NVIDIA and Siemens Collaboration
In the press release for the partnership between the two companies, it mentioned tackling the engineering problems of the future in a visually rich and immersive environment, synonymous with the metaverse.
Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG, expressed that physics-based digital twins combined with artificial intelligence provide an opportunity to alter our economies and industries. The companies will do this by taking benefit of both Siemens’ and NVIDIA’s tech. This latest industrial metaverse will connect hardware to software from the edge to the cloud.
Jensen Huang, the CEO of NVIDIA, declared that both the two companies share a vision that will propel digital transformation. Linking NVIDIA’s Omniverse to the Siemens Xcelerator will uncover a “whole new world” of industrial automation that Siemens’ solutions are creating.
2022 Has Seen Many Metaverse Developments
The metaverse, a shared social space made for virtual and augmented reality, has many positives for various sectors of society. After Mark Zuckerberg changed Facebook’s name to Meta in 2021, many companies became curious about the emerging technology. Here are some of the developments in the metaverse and corresponding industries this year.
Meta itself has been busy with initiatives pivoting around Instagram. It has integrated NFT-tokens into Instagram, rolled out 3D avatars for its suite of social applications, and hosted metaverse concerts in Horizon Venues. Zuckerberg is not holding back about his ambition to build a widely-adopted metaverse, and it is reflected in these recent moves into the domain.
Yuga Labs, a homegrown Web3 company, is forming to build out its Otherside metaverse. In fact, as NFTHi observes their activities, we uncovered the load testing for that virtual world started this week. The hype surrounding Otherside was extreme as its initial NFT mint caused Etherscan to crash.
The collaboration between Siemens and NVIDIA is certainly interesting and, if it pans out well, could spell more invention for a space that already moving forward.
