​Nvidia goes all in on AI

The idea of using GPUs for more than just fun and games is nothing new. It started with niche high-performance computing applications such as seismic data processing for oil and gas, fluid dynamics simulations and options pricing. But now Nvidia thinks it has found its killer app in the form of deep learning. “I think we are going to realize looking back that one of the biggest things that ever happened is AI,” CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in his opening keynote at this year’s GPU Technology Conference. “We think this is a new computing model, a fundamentally different approach to developing software.” The combination of lots of data, better algorithms and powerful GPUs has led to a big bang in modern AI. In many cases, deep learning is now surpassing…
