NVIDIA made a self-driving car with its Xavier supercomputer

At NVIDIA’s CES 2017 keynote address, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced his company’s plan to turn your car into “your most personal robot.” Specifically, NVIDIA announced the company’s AI car supercomputer called the Xavier — an auto-grade, 512-core Volta GPU and AI platform that’s capable of learning how to drive by watching a human driver. To show it off for the CES crowd, Nvidia installed Xavier in an autonomous Lincoln called BB8 and let it loose on the streets of Silicon Valley.

What sets NVIDIA’s Star Wars-inspired vehicle apart is that it learns on its own through observation and deep learning, backed up with HD map data in the cloud.
