If your package gets lost in the mail, artificial intelligence may soon be coming to the rescue to speed up its delivery.

The U.S. Postal Service has partnered with the technology company NVIDIA to roll out edge artificial intelligence applications that are helping the service track down packages in a matter of hours instead of days, according to an NVIDIA blog post.

Together with NVIDIA, the U.S.P.S. has stood up the Edge Computing Infrastructure Program to analyze the billions of images the postal service's processing centers generate. The program, which leverages the NVIDIA EGX platform, can process vast quantities of data and quickly help the U.S.P.S. hunt for packages.
