Why Apollo?

Apollo is an audio/video AI engineering kit that is built around the NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX computing module, enabling developers to build applications with conversational AI capabilities. Apollo features four microphones, two speaker terminals, two 3.5mm phone jacks, an 8MP camera module, an OLED display, and a 128GB NVMe SSD.

Apollo is also pre-packaged with NVIDIA® JetPack, DeepStream, and RIVA on Embedded SDK toolkits and six natural language processing (NLP) examples demonstrating its unique capabilities.

Next-generation AI

Create excellent results in a variety of scenarios with Vision AI and next level natural language processing (NLP). Apollo helps engineers in integrating audio and vision AI to build state-of-the-art edge solutions to real-world problems.

Specialized engineering kit

A functional engineering kit for your audio/video AI development needs. Focus your efforts on developing edge AI audio-visual solutions rather than on enabling peripheral devices or ensuring successful system integration.

Off-the-shelf software examples

Includes several audio and video AI applications based on NVIDIA® DeepStream and RIVA that work out-of-the-box. New examples will be added on a regular basis.

Supporting Software

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR)

The Automatic Speech Recognition application uses the NVIDIA RIVA model to transcribe spoken language (speech-to-text).

Text to Speech

The Text-to-Speech application uses the NVIDIA RIVA model to generate speech audio based on the input text.

Natural Language Processing (NLP)

The Natural Language Processing (NLP) application uses the open-source NLTK model to conduct sentiment analysis on text, determining if the tone of given text is positive or negative.

Chatbot

The chatbot application uses the open-source Chatterbot to create chatbot instances and run NLP tasks. Such tasks include analyzing the tone of generated text and converting text to speech audio (text-to-speech).

Speaker Verification

The Speaker Verification application is the audio equivalent of facial recognition. The application detects and identifies characteristics in a person's voice with the on-board audio kit.
