Four robot mini-cars. A complex network of tunnels. A race against the clock. This was the final test crafted by an MIT professor for what could be the greatest college class ever.
Despite the course title’s tortuous name — Rapid Autonomous Complex-Environment Competing Ackermann-steering Robot — its acronym, RACECAR, gets students’ curiosity revving.
The students’ challenge: Build a self-driving mini-robot car that can zip around a tunnel maze track while navigating its twists and turns.
This post is the first in a series I’ll be writing for Parallel Forall that aims to provide an intuitive and gentle introduction to deep learning. It covers the most important deep learning concepts and aims to provide an understanding of each concept rather than its mathematical and theoretical details. While the mathematical terminology is
Invite 60 gifted high-schoolers to a week-long supercomputing camp. Train them on how to accelerate applications using GPUs. Organize them into small groups, each with their own stack of Jetson TK1 devkits, and set them lose.
The next bright idea gets its start with a stack of Jetson TK1 devkits at the Supercomputing Youth Camp 2015, in South Korea.
What do you get?
The final release of NVIDIA Nsight™ Visual Studio Edition 5.0 is now available for download in the NVIDIA GameWorks Registered Developer Program. This release adds support for Visual Studio 2015 and debugging applications that use the new Direct3D 12 API.
Two students, separated by different cultures and thousands of miles, share a common language. They speak robot. Doctoral candidate Raffaello Bonghi splits his time between Italy and France. Ryan Beethe is an undergrad in Colorado. They’re at the leading edge of bot builds.
