"Much of the Ziva software was written using Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) PARDISO* and Intel MKL Linear Algebra Package* (LAPACK*).
These libraries enabled us to build the most robust, commercially-available FEM solvers on the market. The Ziva Solver is the backbone of our technology, it is what allows our users to achieve lifelike secondary dynamics and make the world’s leading virtual characters.
Partnering with Intel has been an invaluable experience for Ziva. We’ve been able to expand our simulation capacity by over 2000% by using the powerful Xeon Scalable Servers, all while reaching one of the world’s most forward thinking audiences thanks to Intel’s ongoing support.
The Intel AI Builders program will continue to support Ziva as we build out our software capabilities and expand into the real-time simulation markets. Much of our technology relies on the latest AI and ML practices, and we are confident that the Intel AI Builders program will help us access and leverage the top methodologies and technology.
Many of our top customers work on highly sensitive projects, so getting visibility on their results and achievements can be hard. But with Intel, we’ve been able to work closer than ever with many of our users and build stronger customer relationships. We look forward to continuing to create compelling content driven by a shared appreciation for Intel technology, Ziva solutions, and remarkable studio results."
“Intel plays a pivotal role in everything we do at Ziva. Much of our world-class character software was written using Intel’s Math Kernel Libraries and even our in-house simulation results are accelerated with Intel’s Xeon Scalable Servers. As we continue to advance our software and develop real-time character solutions, we’re confident that Intel AI Builders will deliver the robust hardware and data management systems we need to push the standard for best-in-class virtual characters even further.”
