MathWorks Advances Software-Defined Workflows with NVIDIA’s Help

Developers can use their existing MATLAB Algorithm Codebase to develop and deploy AI-enabled applications via the NVIDIA Holoscan platform.

Developers can use their existing MATLAB Algorithm Codebase to develop and deploy AI-enabled applications via the NVIDIA Holoscan platform.

MathWorks releases an integration that makes MATLAB available in the NVIDIA Holoscan platform. Medical device engineers can now accelerate the development and deployment of streaming data analysis and visualization applications by wrapping existing MATLAB algorithms and functions into GPU-accelerated NVIDIA Holoscan operators for real-time data processing and inference.    

“The medical technology industry is being transformed by artificial intelligence,” says David Niewolny, director of Business Development for MedTech at NVIDIA. “By providing a seamless development experience for the growing MATLAB development community within NVIDIA’s medical-grade Holoscan platform, NVIDIA and Mathworks are accelerating AI-powered innovation in med tech.” 

NVIDIA Holoscan is a sensor processing platform that streamlines the development and deployment of artificial intelligence and high-performance computing applications for real-time insights. The platform helps bring the latest AI applications into clinical settings by providing full-stack infrastructure for scalable, software-defined streaming data processing at the edge. The MATLAB integration into Holoscan will help medical device engineers use existing built-in matrix operations and complex toolbox functions for image and signal processing, filtering, transforms, and deep learning algorithms.

Implementing a Holoscan pipeline with MATLAB requires four steps: creating a MATLAB function, generating accelerated CUDA code using GPU Coder, creating a Holoscan operator wrapper, and rebuilding the Holoscan application with a new MATLAB operator. This allows the creation of a completely functional, software-defined workflow for medical devices. Additional integrated verification and validation capabilities in MATLAB and Holoscan allow developed software-defined workflows to comply with industry regulations and standards, including IEC 62304.  

“Engineers can now write MATLAB functions and execute them thousands of times faster with NVIDIA Holoscan,” says MathWorks’ director of Product Marketing David Rich. “Our collaborations with industry leaders like NVIDIA are set to drive medical device innovation as millions of our customers seek to design, develop, and test their products while complying with industry regulations and standards.”
