Yokneam based OpTeamizer, which provides solutions and consultation to AI R&D centers in Israel, has been selected by NVIDIA to provide consulting services to its customers in Europe, assist the company’s technology management, and consult companies on projects based on NVIDIA processors.
OpTeamizer was founded in 2015 by Tomer Gal, one of Israel’s leading AI experts, who participated in strategic developments of Intel Israel and General Electric Israel. Tomer, who has an M.Sc. in Computer Science in software optimization, is a member of the Israel Innovation Authority that evaluates grant applications by AI startups and a lecturer in artificial intelligence at the Software Engineering Department of ORT Braude College of Engineering.
In 2018, NVIDIA appointed OpTeamizer as its first Service Delivery Partner in Israel and the Middle East. OpTeamizer is accredited to train the industry in using NVIDIA’s GPU processors, to accelerate system performance and perform artificial intelligence development. The company is also a consulting services provider for companies that adopt GPU solutions when entering the world of AI.
Following the appointment, OpTeamizer provided a range of trainings and consultation services to more than 80 R&D centers of Israeli companies and multinationals operating in the country. Its customers include defense systems, healthcare, inspection systems, and other hi-tech companies. Tomer Gal and his team help companies migrate from CPU to the massively parallel GPU, accelerate the performance of new GPU systems, develop AI and neural network models, optimize neural networks, and select the relevant hardware for deployment.
OpTeamizer, which currently has 20 employees, trains developers at the R&D centers on NVIDIA’s development tools for the GPU environment and offers courses on CUDA C++, CUDA Python, CUDA for multiple GPUs, Deep learning for computer vision, and Deep learning for multiple data types.
The pending launch of the Jetson Orin AI Computer in 2022 signals a further upgrade in OpTeamizer’s unique status in NVIDIA technologies. Recently, the company has been appointed partner with the status of NVIDIA Jetson Partner for the European market, in addition to the Israeli market. It will provide development, consulting, and training services for European customers of NVIDIA, targeting the Jetson Orin platform.
“NVIDIA’s new Jetson Orin AI Computer will offer edge devices 6x times the performance improvement over the current generation,” said OpTeamizer founder and CEO Tomer Gal. “We will help top Israeli and European companies obtain optimal performance across a wide range of markets that have immense potentials, such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, healthcare, drones, robotics, smart carts, and more.”
“The strategy NVIDIA applies via a partner who specializes in its technologies helps companies enter the fast lane to the world of AI,” added Tomer. “These developments disrupt numerous markets and make such companies global pioneers.
