Nvidia + Uber + Volkswagen = AI for autonomous vehicle industry
Computer graphics chips maker Nvidia, makers of the Jetson boards I reported on earlier, already has partnerships all-electric carmakers Tesla and Baidu. Now Nvidia is poised to expand into technology for self-driving cars. At the CES technology conference in Las Vegas Nvidia revealed that Uber's self-driving car fleet was using their technology to help its autonomous cars perceive the world and make very rapid decisions. Uber has been using Nvidia's GPU computing technology since its first test fleet of Volvo SC90 SUVS were deployed back in 2016 in Pittsburgh and Phoenix.
