Nvidia CEO: Software Is Eating the World, but AI Is Going to Eat Software

Nvidia CEO: “Software is eating the world, but #AI is going to eat software” on @techreview

  • At the company’s annual developer conference in San Jose, California, this week, the company’s CEO Jensen Huang spoke to MIT Technology Review about how the machine-learning revolution is just starting.Nvidia has benefitted from a rapid explosion of investment in machine learning from tech companies.
  • Software is eating the world, but AI is going to eat software.What industry will be transformed by machine learning next?
  • Arterys recently got FDA approval for their cardiac imaging [which annotates scans of the heart], and I know of many others that are in the pipeline.Using machine learning in cars will also create new challenges for regulators.
  • We probably have to break down some of these problems into smaller chunks.Your chips are already driving some cars: all Tesla vehicles now use Nvidia’s Drive PX 2 computer to power the Autopilot feature that automates highway driving.
  • I’m not exactly sure, but we’ll find out.Intel, Google, and several other companies are now working on chips designed to accelerate machine learning (see “Battle to Provide Chips for the AI Boom Heats Up”).

Jensen Huang predicts that health care and autos are going to be transformed by artificial intelligence.

Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice

Drive․ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give ...  by @etherington

  • Core to Drive.ai’ s approach is using deep learning across the board in its autonomous driving system, which means they’re teaching their self-driving cars somewhat like how you’d teach a human.
  • Drive.ai uses deep learning to teach self-driving cars – and to give them a voice
  • While increasing the safety of driving means building an effective ‘left brain’ for a self-driving car, so to speak, it also means addressing the ‘right brain,’ too.
  • Uber and Volvo put $300M into building self-driving cars ready for sale by 2021
  • Startup Drive.ai is revealing its product and strategy for the first time, and the autonomous driving tech company is looking not only to create the best hardware and software to enable self-driving cars, but also to make sure those cars communicate with people outside of the car in the most effective way possible.
