GTC, put together by Nvidia, is one of the world’s premier conferences dedicated to AI developers. Nvidia has used the venue to showcase its AI prowess built on GPU technology.

For several years, AI-enabled autonomous driving has highlighted every GTC. Nvidia presented its AI solutions — deployed in data centers for AI training and its multi-thousand teraflops SoC inside vehicles’ central brains doing AI inference. 

However, it was evident in a pre-GTC briefing this week that Nvidia has begun singing a markedly different tune on fully automated driving. 

This is great stuff. Let’s get started.
