High-performance stereo head-mounted display (HMD) rendering is a fundamental component of the virtual reality ecosystem. HMD rendering requires substantial graphics horsepower to deliver high-quality, high-resolution stereo rendering with a high frame rate. Today, NVIDIA is releasing VR SLI for OpenGL via a new OpenGL extension called “GL_NVX_linked_gpu_multicast” that can be used to greatly improve the
This series of blog posts aims to provide an intuitive and gentle introduction to deep learning that does not rely heavily on math or theoretical constructs. The first part in this series provided an overview over the field of deep learning, covering fundamental and core concepts. In this second part, we look briefly into the
Recent advances in deep learning have enabled research and industry to master many challenges in computer vision and natural language processing that were out of reach until just a few years ago. Yet computer vision and natural language processing represent only the tip of the iceberg of what is possible. In this article, I will demonstrate
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.
