It could lead to faster smart devices.
NVIDIA has launched Jetson TX1’s successor at an event today, and it was designed to run twice as fast while drawing less than 7.5 watts of power. The product aptly called Jetson TX2 is an AI platform for drones, robots, smart cameras and other embedded devices. It can be used for navigation, image and speech recognition, among other purposes. Since it’s more powerful than its predecessor and was specifically designed for “edge computing” — data processing at or near the source instead of in the cloud or a data center — it could leader to faster, smarter and more accurate devices.
