Stanford scientists developed a solution combining high-resolution satellite imagery with deep learning to accurately predict poverty levels at the village level. Using TITAN X and Tesla K40 GPUs with the cuDNN-accelerated Caffe and Tensorflow deep learning frameworks to train their convolutional neural networks, the researchers used the “nightlight” satellite data to identify features in the

In a new automotive application, we have used convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to map the raw pixels from a front-facing camera to the steering commands for a self-driving car. This powerful end-to-end approach means that with minimum training data from humans, the system learns to steer, with or without lane markings, on both local roads
