SmartCow EDGAR Platform Leveraging NVIDIA Clara Guardian to Deliver AI Healthcare Assistance at the Edge

The delivery of healthcare is increasingly challenging with having to do more with less resources while ensuring the health and safety of staff and patients.

Smart sensors such as AI-enabled cameras and microphones can act as eyes and ears to ensure public safety, improve patient care, and enhance operational efficiency at healthcare facilities.

It’s now possible with smart sensors to create a safe, hygienic environment.
