Nvidia Uses AI to Reconstruct Damaged Images
April 24, 2018 6:12 pm|Comments (0)

Software maker Nvidia (NVDA) has introduced a new way to edit or reconstruct images using artificial intelligence.

The deep learning method uses a process the company calls “image inpainting.” It can reconstruct images that could be missing pixels and can remove unwanted content within a photo and replace it with a computer-generated alternative.

“Our model can robustly handle holes of any shape, size location, or distance from the image borders. Previous deep learning approaches have focused on rectangular regions located around the center of the image, and often rely on expensive post-processing,” the NVIDIA researchers stated in their research paper. “Further, our model gracefully handles holes of increasing size.

For example, when you use Nvidia’s technology on a blank space where there is supposed to be a nose, instead of filling the space with its surrounding, the software adds a computer-generated nose.

The company hasn’t offered a time for when this technology could be released, but they do see it someday being implemented into current photo-editing software.

Nvidia, founded in the 1990s, makes graphics chips that can be found in computers, video games, and even self-driving cars. The company has currently been dominating the AI scene and even made its debut in the Fortune 500 last year at #387. The cofounder and CEO, Jen-Hsun “Jensen” Huang was also Fortune’s Businessperson of the Year for 2017.

Nvidia temporarily halts self-driving tests globally: source
March 27, 2018 6:05 pm|Comments (0)

(Reuters) – Chipmaker Nvidia Corp said on Tuesday it has suspended self-driving tests across the globe, a week after an Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] autonomous vehicle hit and killed a woman crossing the street in Arizona.

The company’s shares reversed course in afternoon trading after the news and were down 4 percent at $ 234.50, wiping out nearly $ 6 billion in market value.

“We are temporarily suspending the testing of our self-driving cars on public roads to learn from the Uber incident,” a company spokesman said.

“Our global fleet of manually driven data collection vehicles continue to operate.”

Uber suspended North American tests of its self-driving vehicles after the fatal collision on March 18 in Tempe, Arizona.

The incident has raised questions about the safety of autonomous technology in general, and of Uber’s system specifically.

Nvidia is testing its technology globally including in New Jersey, Santa Clara, Japan and Germany.

Reuters earlier on Tuesday reported about the test suspension, citing a source.

“Nvidia has no choice but to take steps in the context of the fear, uncertainty and outrage likely to be stimulated by a robot car killing a human being,” Roger Lanctot, an automotive technology analyst with Strategy Analytics, wrote in a blog post bit.ly/2GaIBCN on Tuesday.

“This is precisely the type of event that is capable of slaying a nascent industry in the crib,” Lanctot wrote.

Nvidia leads the autonomous industry with its artificial intelligence platform and has partnered with major global automakers such as Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), Tesla Inc and Audi AG.

Uber has been using Nvidia’s computing technology since its first test fleet of Volvo SC90 SUVS were deployed in 2016.

Around 320 firms involved in self-driving cars – from software developers, automakers and their suppliers, sensor and mapping companies – use Nvidia Drive platform, according to the company’s website.

Nvidia chief downplays challenge from Google’s AI chip
May 30, 2016 3:00 pm|Comments (0)

Nvidia has staked a big chunk of its future on supplying powerful graphics chips used for artificial intelligence, so it wasn’t a great day for the company when Google announced two weeks ago that it had built its own AI chip for use in its data centers.

Google’s Tensor Processing Unit, or TPU, was built specifically for deep learning, a branch of AI through which software trains itself to get better at deciphering the world around it, so it can recognize objects or understand spoken language, for example.
