mercedes-nvidiaMany cars were on display at CES last week but perhaps one of the most significant announcements is the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and NVIDIA to bring an NVIDIA AI-powered car to market.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang (right) and Mercedes-Benz Vice President of Digital Vehicle and Mobility Sajjad Khan (left) talked about this new development at the Mercedes Benz Inspiration talk.

“When our teams came together there was instant chemistry, and we share a common vision about how AI can change your driving experience, and make it more enjoyable. 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,,” said Huang, who pointed out that the collaboration began three years ago.

“I am very proud of saying that within 12 months we are rolling out a product with NVIDIA,” Khan added.

The work is part of an ongoing collaboration focused on deep learning and artificial intelligence.

“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,”said Huang.

“We have teams co-located with each other. We have an office in Sunnyvale. Jen-Hsun has a team in Stuttgart,”‘ said Khan.
