At the 2017 CES press conference, Nvidia and Audi have announced to jointly develop next-generation self-driving cars to the global market in 2020, but it's not the only automobile firm working with the GPU maker. Nvidia is also working with Mercedes-Benz for the same.
Jen-Hsun Huang, Nvidia CEO said, "Mercedes-Benz and NVIDIA share a common vision of the AI car. At this point, it is clear AI will revolutionise the future of automobiles."
At the event, both Nvidia and Mercedes-Benz revealed their plans to bring the car with Nvidia-powered AI to market by the end of the year. The two companies have been collaborating for over three years to develop artificial intelligence that can be integrated into a car.
Jen-Hsun added, "At this point, it is very clear that AI is going to be the future of computing. This is an endeavour that we started three years ago that we will put on the road next year - unbelievable.
"This breakthrough called deep learning happened several years ago, and it has completely revolutionised computing from the way you speak to your phone now to the way you take photos and upload to the cloud and how it automatically tags and hosts it for you."
According to a report from TechCrunch, the another key feature that'll be added to the car is a Co-Pilot, a system that combines facial recognition, gaze tracking and will give more assistance for human drivers to improve safety.
The Co-Pilot feature also uses voice recognition and a vehicle's external sensors to improve drivability and safety. It's unclear at this time that how the AI integration will work in the real-life situations.
