Nvidia Jetson TX1 is a credit card-sized supercomputer to power machine learning

NVIDIA HAS UNVEILED a supercomputer the size of a credit card that it says harnesses the power of machine learning to enable a new generation of smart, autonomous machines. Called the Jetson TX1 Module, Nvidia claims the chip is the first embedded computer designed to process deep neural networks, which it says addresses the challenge of creating “a new wave of millions of smart devices”. That involves things like drones that don’t just fly by remote control, but navigate their way through a forest for search and rescue, or robots that don’t just perform tasks, but tailor them to individuals’ habits. Nvidia thinks that incorporating capabilities such as machine learning, computer vision, and navigation is the future as it will enable computer software to recognise objects or interpret information. “This…
