NVIDIA Founder and CEO Jensen Huang made a slew of announcements during his near three-hour keynote address at the GPU Technology Conference last week. But among the date centre and server offerings, partnerships with leading brands and a new development in autonomous driving, one that doesn’t seem as loud and prominent could prove to be the spark to trigger a robotics tsunami.

The newly-announced NVIDIA Jetson TX2, a credit card-sized platform that delivers artificial intelligence (AI) computing at the edge, opens the door to powerfully intelligent factory robots, commercial drones and smart cameras for AI cities.
Jetson TX2 offers twice the performance of its predecessor, or it can run at more than twice the power efficiency, while drawing less than 7.5 watts of power. This allows Jetson TX2 to run larger, deeper neural networks on edge devices. The result is smarter devices with higher accuracy and faster response times for tasks like image classification, navigation and speech recognition.
The Jetson TX2 joins the Jetson TX1 and TK1 products for embedded computing. Jetson is an open platform that is accessible to anyone for developing advanced AI solutions at the edge — from enterprise companies and startups to researchers and high school students.
