Nvidia Supercomputers Set To Drive Cars

Chipmaker Nvidia is kicking the concept of self-driving cars into high gear with an artificial intelligence technology that would make it possible for cars to actually see their surroundings for safer passenger experiences. Nvidia showed off the tech at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this week in front of about 400 automakers, analysts and media. The big idea is called Drive PX 2, a supercomputing platform designed for the specific needs of the auto industry. The supercomputer processes 24 trillion deep learning operations every single second with 8 teraflops of processing power. To put that into perspective, that’s a 10 times stronger performance than the first generation of Drive PX, which over 50 auto companies are already leveraging. It’s also equivalent to the processing power of 150 MacBook Pros –…
