Earlier yesterday, NVIDIA officially announced its partnership with Bosch and Daimler. Specifically, both the automotive and engineering companies will be using the GPU maker’s Driver Pegasus AI to further drive their ambition of creating fully automated and driverless cars.
The partnership between Bosch and Daimler actually dates back to April 2017. Back then, both companies entered into an alliance to create vehicles that would be able to navigate through city traffic, all without the need of a person in the driver’s seat. With NVIDIA and its new driverless AI technology, Bosch and Daimler is expecting their factories to ramp up its mass productions of driverless technology for vehicle within the next decade.
It is no secret that NVIDIA has been an ardent investor in the realm of self-learning artificial intelligence, as well as the applications of Deep Learning and machine learning technology. Earlier in March, the company introduced the DGX-2 at GTC 2018, its two petaFLOPs computer, which is also the “world’s biggest GPU”.
