SAS (pronounced “sass”) once stood for “statistical analysis system.” It began at North Carolina State University as a project to analyze agricultural research. Demand for such software capabilities began to grow, and SAS was founded in 1976 to help customers in all sorts of industries – from pharmaceutical companies and banks to academic and governmental entities.
SAS – both the software and the company – thrived throughout the next few decades. Development of the software attained new heights in the industry because it could run across all platforms, using the multivendor architecture for which it is known today. While the scope of the company has spread across the globe, the encouraging and innovative corporate culture has remained the same.

For two decades, NVIDIA has pioneered visual computing, the art and science of computer graphics. With our invention of the GPU — the engine of modern visual computing — the field has expanded to encompass video games, movie production, product design, medical diagnosis, scientific research, including Deep Learning. Today, visual computing is becoming increasingly central to how people interact with technology.
Data scientists in both industry and academia have been using GPUs for machine learning to make groundbreaking improvements across a variety of applications including image classification, video analytics, speech recognition and natural language processing. Early adopters of GPU accelerators for machine learning include many of the largest web and social media companies, along with top tier research institutions in data science and machine learning. With thousands of computational cores and 10-100x application throughput compared to CPUs alone, GPUs have become the processor of choice for processing big data for data scientists.
