Snowflake, Nvidia expand collaboration to accelerate AI application development

Snowflake has inked an expanded partnership with Nvidia, aiming to enhance AI application development for enterprise customers. The collaboration integrates Nvidia’s accelerated computing and software with Snowflake’s data management capabilities, focusing on building, deploying, and managing AI applications securely.

Key to the collaboration is the integration of Nvidia’s NeMo Retriever within Snowflake’s Data Cloud, allowing customers to utilize advanced AI models directly on their proprietary data. The integration is expected to improve chatbot applications’ performance and scalability and accelerate the development of AI applications using Snowflake Cortex, Snowflake’s large language model (LLM) and vector search service.

Additionally, the partnership will make Nvidia TensorRT software available on Snowflake’s platform.
