Nvidia hails a robotaxi with next step in AI computing


It will be the first of its kind among the autonomous vehicle market, as Nvidia race ahead and offer passengers an on demand service to take them to their destination and giving accessibility to everyone including elderly and disabled passengers. The technology making robotaxis a possibility is Nvidia's Drive PX AI platform, dubbed Pegasus, which delivers all the capabilities of a data centre in a supercomputer the size of a license plate. The size, cost and power demands of existing AI computing solutions, Nvidia claims, makes them impractical for production vehicles. The fleet will use ZF's ProAI self-driving platform for the vehicles, based on Nvidia's Drive PX AI platform.

Baidu plans to start mass-producing autonomous vehicles around 2019


Like its US counterparts, Chinese internet titan Baidu has been working on autonomous vehicle research for years. After a failed partnership with BMW, Baidu opened itself up to teaming up with other companies, notably bringing on NVIDIA to power its Apollo self-driving car program. The internet giant has another partner now: Chinese automaker BAIC, which will pair its cars with Baidu's tech to start mass production of level three autonomous vehicles around 2019, followed by L4 vehicles around 2021. Baidu has outlined a roadmap for its line of self-driving cars with scheduled goals: By the end of 2018, BAIC's self-branded vehicles will carry Baidu's Apollo connectivity features along with the internet giant's DuerOS voice assistant, with plans to produce one million of those cars by the next year.

SAP Leonardo Machine Learning Portfolio is First Enterprise Offering to Use NVIDIA's Volta AI Platform


This was followed by the implementation of NVIDIA DGX-1 systems with NVIDIA Tesla P100 graphics processing units (GPUs) in SAP's production data center in St. Leon-Rot, Germany and in SAP's Innovation Labs in Palo Alto, California, and Singapore in September 2017. From the outset of SAP's machine learning efforts, NVIDIA's computing platform has promoted the company's training of data sets and algorithms – the core of intelligent machine learning applications in the SAP Leonardo Machine Learning portfolio. With SAP Leonardo Machine Learning, SAP brings digital intelligence to enterprise offerings and creates tremendous opportunities for customers to realize greater benefits through automated processes, targeted results-driven marketing, superior customer service, as well as increased agility and process efficiency. The partnership between SAP and NVIDIA to bring DGX-1 systems with Volta to production in the SAP Data Center will give SAP customers access to machine learning services and applications from SAP's own Data Center infrastructure.

[Exclusive] Huawei, Nvidia Partner to Create AI Cloud Technology Platform


Huawei will team up with Nvidia Corp. [NASDAQ:NVDA], a world leader in visual computing, to build a public platform for artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning. China has a fairly large market which is home to a number of micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, Ashok Pandey, vice president of Nvidia said about the firm's partnership with Alibaba Cloud, which began last year. The cooperation between Nvidia and Alibaba is a transition toward a business model where the cloud platform will be the major partner, Pandey said, adding that his firm's technology can be provided through the cloud to business users across China. Teaming up with Huawei appears to be another way in which the visual computing firm can cover a greater portion of the Chinese market.

Artificial Intelligence - what problems can it solve?


The event was part of a series that Odgers Berndtson is running in partnership with technology company NVIDIA as part of their Inception Program. Odgers Berndtson's partnership on the events – known as'Inception Connect' – aims to expose this innovation to new audiences. Speaking about the event series, Odgers Berndtson's Head of the Technology Practice Michael Drew said: "We regularly speak to business leaders who wish to remain ahead of the curve by discovering new AI solutions. The Odgers Berndtson Technology Practice is currently planning the next events focusing on other verticals scheduled for later in 2017.

To Accelerate Artificial Intelligence, NVIDIA & Baidu Signed Partnership


NVIDIA and Baidu announced a broad partnership to bring the world's leading artificial intelligence technology j cloud computing, self-driving vehicles and AI home assistants. Speaking in the keynote at Baidu's AI developer conference in Beijing, Baidu president and COO Qi Lu described his company's plans to work with NVIDIA to bring next-generation NVIDIA Volta GPUs to Baidu Cloud, providing cloud customers with the world's leading deep learning platform. Optimize Baidu's PaddlePaddle open source deep learning framework for NVIDIA Volta GPUs and make it widely available to academics and researchers. Our collaboration aligns our exceptional technical resources to create AI computing platforms for all developers – from academic research, startups creating breakthrough AI applications, and autonomous vehicles."

NVIDIA and Baidu Join Forces in Far-Reaching AI Partnership


Two of the world's top contenders in the realm of artificial intelligence have partnered in cloud computing, self-driving cars, and an AI framework for academia and research. Both players should come out ahead.

Nvidia And Baidu Form Partnership On Artificial Intelligence, Self-Driving Cars

International Business Times

Chinese search giant Baidu announced Wednesday it will work with Nvidia on initiatives focused on artificial intelligence. Our collaboration aligns our exceptional technical resources to create AI computing platforms for all developers -- from academic research, startups creating breakthrough AI applications, and autonomous vehicles." In the past, both companies have collaborated on Baidu's Apollo open platform for self-driving and autonomous cars. Baidu's partnership with Nvidia also comes as the search company significantly bolsters its self-driving car research efforts.

Re-thinking Enterprise business processes using Augmented Intelligence


ERP deployments led by SAP and others were a direct result of the Business Process re-engineering phenomenon. How would you rethink Enterprise business processes using Augmented Intelligence? Deep Learning involves automatic feature detection using the data. I am exploring these ideas in more as part of my work on the Enterprise AI lab we are launching in London and Berlin in partnership with UPM and Nvidia both for Enterprises and Cities.

Nvidia just boosted its self-driving car tech in a major way


The company, known for its mobile chips and graphics tech, announced partnerships with Bosch, the largest automotive supplier in the world, and PACCAR, a major truck manufacturer, to develop self-driving vehicle systems. At #BCW17 we announced our partnership with @BoschGlobal on #AI self-driving computer based on our #DRIVEPX: This is just latest big news from a computing company looking to create its own AI system for self-driving vehicles -- earlier this week, Intel acquired Mobileye in a deal worth over $15 billion that also was focused on the development of autonomous platforms. Specific terms of the Nvidia partnerships weren't disclosed, but they both centers around Nvidia's Drive PX AI car computer platform -- but they're chasing different goals. The Bosch computer will utilize Nvidia's upcoming AI car "superchip," called Xavier, which is slated to be the world's first single-chip processor designed for Level 4 autonomous driving.
