The Science of Storytelling at NTU’s Future Studios Research Lab

Storytelling has been an important part of all cultures since the dawn of humankind, and the art and science of storytelling continues to advance with NVIDIA-powered technologies like those being used at new Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Future Studios Research Lab in Singapore.

Using NVIDIA’s latest Quadro K6000 GPU, the researchers at the lab estimate they have helped local studio Richmanclub Studios reduce film production costs by up to 80%. With 12 GB of memory and 2880 CUDA parallel-processing cores, the Quadro K6000 significantly expands the capabilities of the world’s most widely used GPU. The lab will continue to collaborate with NVIDIA and HP to bring the latest state-of-the-art technology to storytelling, one of our oldest past-times.
