The new AI system will help process package data 10 times faster for the Postal Service, which processes and delivers about 146 billion pieces of mail in a year, Nvidia said.

Nvidia’s systems are being purchased by the Postal Service under a contract with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co.

The tie-up is expected to be fully operational by spring of 2020, Nvidia said, adding that delivery and testing of the system will start this year.
