Teradata joins NVIDIA programme focused on AI, Deep Learning

Teradata joins NVIDIA programme focused on AI, Deep Learning

The chipmaker, which has provided technology to Uber's self-driving cars, is testing self-driving technology globally including in New Jersey, Santa Clara, Japan and Germany.

Over the past year, Nvidia's automotive business has grown, with Shapiro highlighting that the company's ecosystem comprises virtually anyone developing something to do with cars, trucks, and delivery vehicles.

Nvidia has on Tuesday announced Drive Constellation, a cloud-based system for testing autonomous vehicles using photorealistic simulation via virtual reality, aiming to speed up the delivery of autonomous cars in a safer and more scalable way.

The move to pause the tests comes almost two weeks after a self-driving Uber auto, which incorporates Nvidia technology in its self-driving vehicles, struck and killed a woman in Arizona. Additionally, major computer manufacturers Cray, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Lenovo, Supermicro and Tyan announced they will begin rolling out their new Tesla V100 32GB systems within the second quarter.

France to pay national tribute to officer killed in hostage swop
The prosecutor said Lakdim arrived in France with his family in 1992 soon after he was born in Morocco. Details from Lt Col Beltrame's autopsy also revealed that he was shot in the head by the terrorist.

"We have to train our neural network with extreme precision for autonomous driving", Huang said.

Last week, Uber suspended North American tests of its self-driving vehicles after one of its self-driving cars killed a woman in Arizona.

The technology is created to allow automakers and others to validate their technology on billions of driving miles and increase the strength of their algorithms by repeatedly testing hard scenarios, which would be impractical in the real world. With its exclusive focus on data and analytics, Teradata will be collaborating with NVIDIA on solutions that drive impactful business outcomes in industries including banking and insurance, automotive, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, retail, media and entertainment, and travel and transportation. Waymo uses simulation in addition to physical testing.

Companies generally supplement their real-world driving by simulations, which allow them to cover more miles and so-called tricky "edge cases" more efficiently and more cheaply. The server sends driving commands back to the simulator, completing what the company calls the "hardware-in-the-loop cycle". "Our global fleet of manually driven data collection vehicles continue to operate".

Kansas State guard Kamau Stokes and teammates celebrate after defeating Kentucky, 61-58, early Friday in Atlanta. The Wildcats, who came in with 44 3s in the tournament, had two in the opening 20 minutes.

"On initial internal benchmark tests, our 4029GP-TVRT system was able to achieve 5,188 images per second on ResNet-50 and 3,709 images per second on InceptionV3 workloads", said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro.

"Safety is really the most important thing, as we were reminded just last week", Huang said, referring to the Uber incident.

The company envisions engineers scripting "potentially hazardous scenarios without putting anyone in harm's way", Shapiro said.
