[Blogger's note: See third link below about another version of the NVIDIA card computer, the Jetson TK1, which is larger and more expensive.]
Nvidia has unveiled the Jetson TX1, a credit-card sized computer with machine learning capabilities that could help hardware developers add complex features to their projects.
The company says its latest system-on-chip module could enable some exciting technologies: “drones that don’t just fly by remote control, but navigate their way through a forest for search and rescue; compact security surveillance systems that don’t just scan crowds, but identify suspicious activity; and robots that don’t just perform tasks, but tailor them to individuals’ habits.”
