CES--Volvo Cars will use the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 deep learning- based computing engine to power a fleet of 100 Volvo XC90 SUVs starting to hit the road next year in the Swedish carmaker's Drive Me autonomous-car pilot program, NVIDIA announced today. Autonomous technology is an important contributor to Volvo's Vision 2020 -- its guiding principles for creating safer vehicles. This work has resulted in world-leading advancements in autonomous and semi-autonomous driving, and a new safety benchmark for the automotive industry. "Our vision is that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by the year 2020," said Marcus Rothoff, director of the Autonomous Driving Program at Volvo Cars. "NVIDIA's high-performance and responsive automotive platform is an important step towards our vision and perfect for our autonomous drive program and the Drive Me project."

BEIJING, CHINA - GPU Technology Conference China -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled a palm-sized, energy-efficient artificial intelligence (AI) computer that automakers can use to power automated and autonomous vehicles for driving and mapping. The new single-processor configuration of the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI computing platform for AutoCruise functions -- which include highway automated driving and HD mapping -- consumes just 10 watts of power and enables vehicles to use deep neural networks to process data from multiple cameras and sensors. It will be deployed by China's Baidu as the in-vehicle car computer for its self-driving cloud-to-car system. DRIVE PX 2 enables automakers and their tier 1 suppliers to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. A car using the small form-factor DRIVE PX 2 for AutoCruise can understand in real time what is happening around it, precisely locate itself on an HD map and plan a safe path forward.
SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2016) - GPU Technology Conference -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today announced that it is a founding technology partner of the MGH Clinical Data Science Center, which aims to advance healthcare by applying the latest artificial intelligence techniques to improve the detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases. Massachusetts General Hospital -- which conducts the largest hospital-based research program in the United States, and is the top-ranked hospital on this year's US News and World Report "Best Hospitals" list -- recently established the MGH Clinical Data Science Center in Boston. The center will train a deep neural network using Mass General's vast stores of phenotypic, genetics and imaging data. The hospital has a database containing some 10 billion medical images. To process this massive amount of data, the center will deploy the NVIDIA DGX-1 -- a server designed for AI applications, launched earlier today at the GPU Technology Conference -- and deep learning algorithms created by NVIDIA engineers and Mass General data scientists.
